Peter Carlsson – Revolutionizing the Car Industry at Tesla Motors
Join SACC-SF/SV on Tuesday, February 3, for an exclusive tour of premium electric car manufacturer Tesla Motor’s cutting edge factory and Tesla test drives, followed by a presentation by Tesla CPO & Head of Supply Chain, Peter Carlsson, on his journey to the top and how Tesla is set to dramatically change the car industry.
Introducing Peter Carlsson
Tesla Motors has been everyone’s darling since the launch of the Roadster in 2008. After launching its second car – the Model S sedan – in 2013, Tesla Motors has continued to enjoy one success after the other. And much of this recent success has been credited to the company’s CPO & Head of Supply Chain, Peter Carlsson.
Peter came to Tesla’s Palo Alto headquarters by way of Singapore, where he was in charge of NXP Semiconductors and “transformed a purchase organization from a tactical decentralized entity to a strategic global commodity organization.” Earlier, he was chief purchasing officer at Sony Ericsson, where he oversaw the company’s 8 billion euro per year purchasing department.
