Picture this: you are a young engineer, you start in this new company from an eccentric South African multi-millionaire called Elon Musk who says he wants to be the greatest car company in the world. You are like "mmm ok..." but you keep working because they pay you good, it's close to your home and you are helping climate change. Years later, you earn millions. How? Check the story below.
Some current executives are a great example to show how they earned so much money.
Zachary Kirkhorn is the current CFO of the company and has 1831 shares. Those are now worth over $16 million dollars. Fun fact? He is in his 30s.
Drew Baglino, Chief of power systems is one of the best Tesla engineers, and he has been 14 years with the company. Oh, yeah, he has also more than $5 million in shares.
The last, but not least, Elon Musk. The CEO of the company has shares that are worth over $45 billion dollars. He also gave some to his brother who is in the Director’s board, and he has a couple of $170 million in shares. Not bad, Elon, not bad.
