Tom LaSorda will be stepping down from his position – and no, it’s not because he doesn’t know how to handle these Fisker Karma fires. When Fisker appointed Tom LaSorda as CEO a part of his assignment was to find a long-term CEO.

“Tony is the perfect CEO for Fisker,” said LaSorda. “He has been at the forefront of the industry’s technological revolution and one of the few people in the world to bring an EV to mass production.”

“We are delighted to be adding an executive of Tony’s caliber to the Fisker Automotive leadership team,” said Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, Henrik Fisker. “His depth of knowledge and experience in this innovative field of new technology means that he is one of the world’s most experienced leaders in vehicle electrification technology and the plug-in ecosystem. In the long-term he will ensure that Fisker is well positioned to maximize the potential of not only the Karma sedan, but also bring the Fisker Atlantic smoothly to market.”
