特斯拉全球销售总裁转投Lyft

Kirsten Korosec 2018年02月12日

在该总裁任职期间,特斯拉的销量增长了两倍以上,客户满意度达到历史最高水平。

特斯拉又失去一位高管——这次是全球销售和服务总裁,而且首席执行官埃隆·马斯克表示他不打算填补这个空缺。

马斯克在上周三的第四季度业绩电话会议上向分析师证实,2015年加入特斯拉的乔恩·麦克尼尔已经离职。同一天,打车服务提供商Lyft将麦克尼尔任命为首席运营官,接替去年11月卸任的雷克斯·迪本斯。

马斯克说:“我们祝他未来事业发展顺利。今后销售和服务部门将直接向我报告。我们不打算寻找继任者。”

麦克尼尔的独特之处在于他是特斯拉唯一参加现金分红激励方案的高管。去年8月,特斯拉和麦克尼尔签订了薪酬激励协议,承诺的奖金不超过70万美元,条件是2017年3-4季度汽车交付量以及与汽车服务业绩和成本有关的2017年全年经营和财务指标达到一定目标,而且消费者满意度也要达到一定分数。还不清楚麦克尼尔是否达到了这些要求。

此外,麦克尼尔的工作不仅限于领导销售和服务部门。

去年9月,特斯拉业务开发副总裁迪尔梅德·奥康奈尔离职,他是马斯克手下最显眼、最有价值的高管之一。当时特斯拉称奥康奈尔的工作将由麦克尼尔接手。

奥康奈尔帮助特斯拉谈成了最重要的生意,帮特斯拉买下了设在弗里蒙特的工厂并谈妥了合同。该工厂此前属于新联合汽车制造公司,由丰田和通用汽车共同拥有,年产量最高时接近43万辆。奥康奈尔还代表特斯拉和内华达州政府签订了建立Gigafactory的协议,这家大型电池厂设在里诺市附近,目前仍在建设之中。在国会为特斯拉争取直接销售权的过程中,奥康奈尔同样战斗在最前线——这种直接把车卖给消费者的方式遭到了其他汽车厂商的强烈反对。

Lyft发表公告称,麦克尼尔在特斯拉也是重要人物。

这份关于麦克尼尔的公告表示:“麦克尼尔任职期间,特斯拉的销量增长了两倍以上,客户满意度达到历史最高水平,特斯拉的员工人数也增至1万人以上,业务扩展到了32个国家。在扩大规模的同时,麦克尼尔的团队还通过移动服务创新以及店内和数字销售体验创新改变了汽车行业。从他成为创始人和CEO的那些日子开始,麦克尼尔就一直对改善出行方式充满热情。”(财富中国网)

Tesla has lost another executive—this time its president of global sales and service, and CEO Elon Musk says he has no plans to fill the position.

Jon McNeill, who joined Tesla in 2015, has departed the company, Musk confirmed during a Wednesday fourth-quarter earnings call with analysts. McNeill was named Wednesday as chief operating officer at ride-hailing company Lyft, filling a position left vacant by the departure of Rex Tibbens in November.

So psyched to join this great team! https://t.co/y95zixN83F

“We wish him well in his future career,” Musk said. “Going forward I will be having the sales and service report directly to me. There are no plans to search for a replacement.”

McNeill was unique in that he was the only senior executive who had a cash-bonus incentive plan. In August, Tesla entered into an incentive compensation plan with McNeill, that would give him up to a $700,000 bonus for meeting certain target levels of vehicle deliveries during the third and fourth quarters of 2017, operational and financial metrics relating to vehicle service performance and costs during 2017, and customer satisfaction scores. It’s unclear if he met those targets.

He was also doing more than just heading up sales and service.

In September, Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development and one of Musk’s most visible and valuable executives, left the company. At the time, Tesla said McNeil would take over O’Connell’s responsibilities.

O’Connell helped Tesla negotiate its most important deals, finding and negotiating an agreement to buy Tesla’s Fremont factory, the former Nummi plant jointly owned by Toyota and General Motors that produced nearly 430,000 vehicles at its peak. O’Connell was also lead in Tesla’s deal with Nevada to build its Gigafactory, a massive battery factory that is still under construction near Reno. O’Connell was at the front of the battle lines in the fight with legislators to allow Tesla to sell directly to customers—an approach vehemently opposed by auto dealers.

McNeill was also an important figure at Tesla, a point that Lyft made in its announcement.

“During his time at Tesla, sales more than doubled, customer satisfaction increased to record levels, and his organization scaled to over 10,000 people across 32 countries,” Lyft said in a statement about McNeill. “While scaling, Jon’s teams also changed the auto industry by innovating mobile services as well as the in-store and digital sales experience. Jon’s passion to change transportation for the better goes back to his days as a founder and CEO.”
