ON PARTNERS ANNOUNCES PLACEMENT OF JASON WHEELER AS TESLA MOTORS CFO

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – NOVEMBER 04, 2015 – ON Partners today announced the successful appointment of Jason Wheeler as chief financial officer of Tesla Motors, designers and manufacturers of premium electric vehicles. Jason joins Tesla after 13 years at Google Inc. — Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG) (Nasdaq: GOOGL).

The recruiting engagement was conducted by Larry Ormsby, partner with ON Partners, who noted, “Jason is really a ‘best athlete’ hire. He has a deep understanding of how to best foster innovation while still balancing the tradeoffs required for smart, hyper growth”.

Ormsby added, “It is rare to find a CFO with this kind of scale who is still so mission driven. Jason has seen massive growth with Google and he could not be more aligned with the vision of Tesla Motors”.

Mr. Wheeler previously served as VP Finance at Google where he oversaw global financial operations for the company including FP&A, Accounting, Internal Audit, Treasury, Tax and Financial Operations. He joined Google in 2002 where he helped navigate growth from under a billion dollars in revenue to $66 billion in 2014.
