In a world where CEOs and CFOs no longer matter, meet Tesla's new Technoking and Master of Coin.
Elon Musk’s love affair with cryptocurrency shows no sign of ending, after a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission announced the adoption of new official titles for him and a fellow Tesla executive.
Starting from March 15, Elon Musk will carry the official title of “Technoking of Tesla,” while the firm’s chief financial officer, Zack Kirkhorn, will officially be known as “Master of Coin.” The 8-K form filed with the SEC states:
“Effective as of March 15, 2021, the titles of Elon Musk and Zach Kirkhorn have changed to Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively.”
The filing also states that Musk and Kirkhorn will retain their current respective positions as chief executive officer and chief financial officer.
With no sign of an accompanying tweet that the Tesla CEO has become famous for, onlookers can only speculate as to why Musk and Kirkhorn have adopted the new titles.
