Tesla is losing Liam O’Connor, its vice president of global supply management, at a time when senior executives continue to leave the electric carmaker at a critical time. Bloomberg cited anonymous sources reporting O’Connor’s resignation, although the information was not public.

Tesla representatives did not immediately respond to Quartz for confirmation.

The departure comes on the heels of chief accounting officer, Dave Morton leaving Tesla after only a month because “the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations,” according to a filing on Sept. 7. Tesla’s chief human resources officer, Gaby Toledano, also announced she would not return from a leave of absence in August after just 15 months at the company.

More than a dozen top executives have left the company since 2016. An abbreviated list is here.
