Siry and the Tesla Roadster

The executive churn at Tesla Motors continues today as SVP of Marketing and Sales, Darryl Siry has resigned. In a posting on his personal blog, Siry cited "disagreements in strategy" as his reason for leaving. When AutoblogGreen contacted Siry, he declined to elaborate on the reasons, but a successor has already been recruited and Siry stayed on these last several weeks to facilitate the transition. In mid-October, Tesla Chairman Elon Musk stepped in to replace former CEO Ze'ev Drori in that position, a move that coincided with the lay-offs of 20 percent of the company's staff and delays to the Model S sedan.

Among his duties at Tesla, Siry has been the primary spokesman for the EV start-up. He has not announced any new plans but does intend to comment more on the alternative fuel vehicle industry on his blog.
