Nick Sampson, Faraday Future (FF) co-founder and senior vice president of product strategy, has resigned amid layoffs and the company’s ongoing spat with Chinese investor Evergrande Health.

His departure follows that of Peter Savagian, senior vice president of product and technology development,  who also left the electric vehicle startup this week. Tom Wessner, senior vice president of global supply chain, and Pontus Fonateus, principal of interior design and brand, quit in early October.

Sampson announced his departure on his LinkedIn page on the morning of October 31 (China Standard Time), saying that he made the decision as a result of the “devastating impact” recent events were having on the company’s employees, their families, and the “ripple effect” on its suppliers and the industry.
