Tesla appoints Airbnb co-founder to board

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, officially joined the board September 25 as an independent director.

His appointment comes a few months after leaving day-to-day operations at Airbnb. He is now an advisor to the short-term rental company and also serves on its board. Gebbia also is on the board of Airbnb.org, an organization that encourages its hosts to open homes in times of crisis.

Gebbia has waived any entitlement to cash compensation, posted Wednesday. He has also waived equity compensation until July 2023.
