Tesla's CFO Deepak Ahuja is leaving the company, CEO Elon Musk said at the end of an earnings call on Wednesday.

Why it matters: Ahuja is retiring following a string of executive departures last year. Ahuja left the company after being CFO from 2008-2015, and later returned to the position in February 2017. He will remain an adviser to Tesla, but will be replaced as CFO by VP of Finance Zach Kirkhorn.
