(Yicai Global) Oct. 9 -- Faraday & Future Inc., an electronic vehicle brand that bears the great hopes of Jia Yueting, founder of Leshi Holding (Beijing) Co., lost two executives in a row in the first week of October, media reported on Oct. 8.
On Oct. 5, Tom Wessner, the senior vice president of Faraday Future's global supply chain quit, while on Oct. 6, Pontus Fonateus, the principal of interior design and brand, also said goodbye, and Faraday Future has confirmed this information.
Wessner is one of the five members of Faraday Future's startup team, and Nick Sampson, the senior vice president of research and development and engineering, Tony Nie, the senior vice president, Jia, the founder of LeTV, and Alan Cherry, the vice president of human resources form the other four. Alan Cherry also left the company in August.
Since early summer this year, Wessner had been considering leaving Faraday Future, but was afterwards promoted to senior vice president from vice president, but this nonetheless failed to restrain him from leaving.
As an early member of Faraday Future, Fonateus was the core power of the company's creative design, and was in charge of all UI/UX and interior decoration. Before joining Faraday Future, he worked for Volvo AB [STO:VOLV-B] and Land Rover, owned by India's Tata Motors Ltd. [NSE:TATAMOTORS].
