Eccentric CEOs: Elon Musk, Tesla Inc (TSLA)
As CEO and founder of electric car company Tesla, Elon Musk, is one of the first people that comes to mind when thinking about mega-successful eccentric CEOs.
Musk is well known using colorful language and not shying away from speaking his mind, especially when it comes to talking about competitors. However, while Mr. Musk can sometimes be controversial, you’ve got to give it to him for thinking big and executing those plans. His decision to create a TSLA Gigafactory in Nevada appears to be paying off.
According to Musk, Tesla is on-track to build 500,000 new vehicles in 2018.
