(Bloomberg) — Elon Musk, the chief executive officer of both Tesla Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., opened up about his tumultuous year in a wide-ranging interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
Musk, 47, told anchor Lesley Stahl that none of his tweets have been censored since he reached a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in October.
His problematic Twitter messages in August — about trying to take the company private — caused months of chaos, and the agency sought to improve the governance of a board long criticized for being too closely aligned with its billionaire leader.
“I want to be clear. I do not respect the SEC,” Musk said, according to a transcript provided in advance by the network. Musk added that he’s abiding by the SEC’s terms because he respects the justice system. He also said that he handpicked Robyn Denholm as Tesla’s new board chair, and that in addition to not wanting to be chairman again, he would prefer “to have no titles at all.”
