Branderiz had joined Tesla in October 2016 after a six-year stint at SunPower Corp (SPWR.O).

    The news comes at a time when ISS and Glass Lewis, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommending that Tesla shareholders vote against a proposal to give CEO Elon Musk a $2.6 billion (1.88 billion pounds) performance-based stock option grant.

    Shares of the Silicon Valley company were down 1.5 percent at $324 in after-hours trading on Thursday.
