詹姆斯•默多克有望执掌特斯拉

James Murdoch has become the favourite to succeed Elon Musk as the chairman of Tesla, which must replace the electric car maker’s founder in the role by the middle of next month.

詹姆斯•默多克(James Murdoch)已成为接替埃隆•马斯克(Elon Musk)出任特斯拉(Tesla)董事长的呼声最高的人选。这家电动汽车制造商最迟必须在下月中旬撤换创始人的董事长职务。

Mr Musk agreed to leave the role as part of a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over claims he broke securities laws in August with a tweet saying he had “funding secured” to take Tesla private. He will stay on as chief executive.

马斯克同意离职是他与美国证交会(SEC)达成的和解协议的一部分,起因是他被指在8月违反证券法律,在Twitter上说大话,称将特斯拉收归私有的“资金已落实”。他将继续担任首席执行官。

Two people briefed on the discussions said that Mr Murdoch, a non-executive director of Tesla, was the lead candidate to be chairman. Another person said external options were being considered.

听取了相关讨论简报的两名人士表示,目前担任特斯拉非执行董事的默多克,是出任董事长的领先候选人。另一人表示,正在考虑外部人选。

Mr Musk is known to favour Antonio Gracias, Tesla’s lead independent director, but has been advised that he may not be a sufficiently independent chairman because of his involvement with Mr Musk’s companies. Valor Equity Partners, Mr Gracias’s firm, invested in Tesla in 2005, selling its shares in the company’s IPO in 2010. He also invested in SpaceX, Mr Musk’s rocket business.

据悉,马斯克推举特斯拉的首席独立董事安东尼奥•格雷西亚斯(Antonio Gracias)出任董事长,但他被告知,由于他参与了马斯克旗下的不止一家公司,他可能不是一个足够独立的董事长。格雷西亚斯的公司Valor Equity Partners早在2005年就投资特斯拉,并在后者2010年首次公开发行(IPO)时出售所持股份。他还曾投资于马斯克的火箭业务SpaceX。

Mr Musk declined to comment while Mr Murdoch referred calls to Tesla, which declined to comment. However, people familiar with the discussions said he wanted the job.

马斯克拒绝置评,默多克请记者致电特斯拉询问,而特斯拉拒绝置评。然而,熟悉相关讨论的人士表示,默多克想要这个职位。

Mr Murdoch, who will step down as chief executive of 21st Century Fox when the media group completes the sale of its entertainment assets to Walt Disney, is considering setting up a technology investment fund. He has also stepped down as chairman of European media group Sky following its recent sale to Comcast.

当21世纪福克斯(21st Century Fox)完成向华特迪士尼(Walt Disney)出售娱乐资产后,默多克将卸任这家媒体集团的首席执行官职务。他正在考虑设立一只科技投资基金。他还卸任了欧洲媒体集团Sky的董事长职务,因为Sky已在最近被出售给康卡斯特(Comcast)。

“The Tesla chairman job is perfect for James,” said one person briefed on the conversations. “He’s working on this fund and will be sitting next to Elon  . . . he’s going to get access to so much deal flow.”

“特斯拉董事长的职务对詹姆斯来说是完美的,”一名知情人士表示,“他正在筹办这个基金,并将坐在埃隆旁边……他将接触到那么多的交易流。”

In a recent interview at a Goldman Sachs conference, Mr Murdoch spoke warmly about Mr Musk and his time as a Tesla director. “It’s been a really fascinating experience,” he said. “What’s exciting about the company and about Elon is the goals are so audacious. He’s an entrepreneur who has some really audacious goals about what can be created and what can be settled for.”

在最近举行的一个高盛(Goldman Sachs)会议上接受采访时,默多克高度评价马斯克以及他自己担任特斯拉董事的经历。“那真是一段引人入胜的经历,”他说,“这家公司和埃隆令人振奋的地方是目标如此大胆。他是一位企业家,对于可以创造什么和可以接受什么有一些真正大胆的目标。”

Mr Murdoch, a friend of Mr Musk, joined Tesla last year as one of two new independent directors brought in to strengthen a board that has frequently been criticised for bowing to Mr Musk’s wishes. But the appointments have had no effect on the mercurial Mr Musk this year, and Mr Murdoch has participated in recent decisions that have brought more scorn on the board.

身为马斯克朋友的默多克,是在去年加入特斯拉、成为两名新的独立董事之一的,目的是加强一个经常被批评为听命于马斯克的董事会。但这些任命对马斯克今年的任性行为没有任何影响,而默多克近期参与做出的决定使董事会招致更多蔑视。

Tesla directors, including Mr Murdoch, issued a ringing endorsement of Mr Musk after he first rejected an SEC deal, a move that wiped 14 per cent off the group’s shares. Mr Musk has until mid-November to find a replacement having been given 45 days to step down.

包括默多克在内的特斯拉董事,在马斯克最初拒绝与美国证交会达成协议后表示坚决支持他,此举使特斯拉股价大跌14%。后来马斯克被勒令在45天内离职,这意味着他最迟必须在11月中旬找到接替自己的人。
