(Bloomberg) — Ross Gerber, a vocal Tesla Inc. shareholder, says he’ll pursue a board seat on the electric-vehicle maker’s board.
Gerber, who’s the chief government officer of funding agency Gerber Kawasaki, confirmed his intentions throughout a Twitter Areas audio convention hosted by Bloomberg on Friday.
He stated he plans to be an activist board member, with a purpose of reining in Chief Government Officer Elon Musk.
“Tesla must construct its picture round Tesla, and never simply round Elon,” he stated on the decision, including: “I feel it’s time for Tesla to develop up.”
Gerber’s agency holds round 440,000 Tesla shares as of December 31, based on knowledge compiled by Bloomberg.
