Linda Johnson Rice named to board of Tesla Motors, along with James Murdoch

(July 19, 2017) Tesla Motors has announced the appointment of two new board members, Linda Johnson Rice, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Publishing Company (JPC), and James Murdoch, Chief Executive Officer of 21st Century Fox (21CF), to Tesla's board of directors.

The announcements comes following the request of influential investors that two members be added to the existing six that did not have personal or professional ties to Tesla chairman, Elon Musk. Five members was identified as having such a relationship. Musk said at the time of the request that he had already made plans to add two independent board members. Through Twitter in April Musk said  the activist shareholder group had "nothing to do" with the decision to appoint these new directors.

In addition to her role as Chairman and CEO of JPC and Fashion Fair Cosmetics, Linda is CEO of Ebony Media Operations and Chairman Emeritus of EBONY Media Holdings, the parent company for the EBONY and Jet brands. Linda has extensive corporate board experience, having previously served on the boards of a number of companies across a variety of industries, including Bausch & Lomb, Continental Bank, Quaker Oats, Dial Corporation, MoneyGram and Kimberly-Clark Corporation, and currently serving on the boards of Omnicom Group and Grubhub. Linda is a Trustee at the Art Institute of Chicago, President of the Chicago Public Library Board of Directors, Council Member of The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, and board member of After School Matters and Northwestern Memorial Corporation.

Before becoming CEO of 21CF in 2015, James held a number of leadership roles at the company over a two-decade career. He previously served as its Co-Chief Operating Officer, Chairman and CEO for Europe and Asia, as well as Chairman of BSkyB, Sky Deutschland, and Sky Italia, the businesses that now comprise Sky plc. He also served as CEO of BSkyB and STAR, India's entertainment leader.
