Tesla has appointed Airbnb co-founder and billionaire Joe Gebbia to its board of directors, according to a securities filing.
Gebbia, a designer who co-founded Airbnb, joined the board as an independent director on September 25. His appointment comes after he left day-to-day operations at Airbnb a few months ago. He is now an advisor and board member for the short-term rental company. Gebbia also serves on the board of Airbnb.org, a non-profit that encourages hosts to open their homes during times of crisis. According to the filing, Gebbia has waived any right to monetary compensation. He has also agreed to forego equity compensation until July 2023.
