Renjie Zhu, the director of manufacturing in charge of Cybertruck production is no longer with Tesla. He announced on LinkedIn:

After triumphing the epic launch of Cybertruck program and ramping the volume production line to the steady 1K/W throughput orbit for the past 16 months in GFTX, also 7 weeks after the 5th Tesla-versary, my adventure with this great company has come to an end.


According to Electrek :

Zhu was in charge of manufacturing operations for Tesla’s highly succesful Model 3 and Model Y production lines at Gigafactory Shanghai.​
In 2023, he came to Gigafactory Austin after Tom Zhu, then the head of Tesla’s operations in China, was placed in charge of roughly Tesla’s entire automotive operations with the goal of replicating Tesla’s success in Shanghai at its North American factories.​
As we reported, Tom Zhu recently went back to China, leading the company’s effort there, and gave up his responsibilities in North America.​
As for Renjie Zhu, it’s unclear if he left Tesla of his own accord or if he was let go as part of the layoffs.​

Mission accomplished. Great work. Thanks to him and countless Tesla superstars at GigaTexas, I have my Cyberbeast. 🙏
Now that his boss, fellow compadre has left, well guess he's going home too. Godspeed to y'all (y)

In the long Tesla traditions:

High turn-over on slave driving dictatorial Elon management style.

He must have gotten tired of what Musk must have thought as cute style of sleeping on the factory floor for his dramatics (it's actually disruptive to operations).

Cybertruck production is on autopilot now. The challenges are coming to an end.

Tesla has lower management turnover than the average SP500 company, people have crunched the numbers, it's true. It's the anti-Tesla folks who are trying to create the narrative that Tesla has excessively high turnover. The problem is, the facts don't support their narrative. Of course, that doesn't stop them from pushing that narrative.

Don't believe everything you hear. It could be someone trying to change your opinion of a company or person.
