前特斯拉高管加入FF 任知识产权战略副总裁等职 – Sina Tech
What happened: Faraday Future (FF) has appointed Jeff Risher, the former head of intellectual property and litigation at Tesla, as the firm’s vice president of product, technology, and IP strategy. Risher will be responsible for FF’s overall product strategy, advanced technology adoption, and strategic partnerships and will report to FF’s Global CEO Jia Yueting.
Why it’s important: When Faraday Future first unveiled the all-electric FF 91, it was seen as a fierce Tesla competitor. After a tumultuous start, the company is expecting to start delivering its first vehicles in December. Having an ex-Tesla top executive joining and taking on a strategic position at this critical stage is good news for FF as it prepares to take on Tesla and a slew of new players.
