Tesla has lost its Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton after only one month on the job. Morton is the second Chief Accounting Officer at Tesla over the last 6 months. He resigned on September 4 after starting on August 6.

In an 8-K filed early on Friday morning, Tesla disclosed the news. It claims that Morton did not resign for reasons having to do with the company‘s financials, but rather he resigned because of "the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company".
