Tesla Inc. confirmed in a Sept. 7 blog post that Chief People Officer Gaby Toledano decided to extend a several-month leave of absence "for personal reasons."
Earlier on Sept. 7, Bloomberg said Toledano told the news outlet she will not rejoin the company.
According to the blog post, Tesla promoted Vice President of Infrastructure Development Kevin Kassekert to the role of vice president of people and places, overseeing human resources, facilities, construction and infrastructure development.
The automotive manufacturer also promoted Jerome Guillen to president of its automotive division. Guillen most recently managed all vehicle engineering and worldwide sales and service for the company.
Tesla shares closed down 6.90% at $263.24 on Sept. 7 following the announced departure of Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton. The accounting chief left the company after concluding that he was not being heard on a potential take-private deal, according to a subsequent CNBC report.
Tesla shares were up 0.29% to $264.0 in after-hours trading.
