Tesla’s Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton has resigned from his role at the company, Reuters reports.

Morton cited discomfort with the level of public attention in the company and pace of work just a month after he joined the electric car maker.

“I want to be clear that I believe strongly in Tesla, its mission, and its future prospects, and I have no disagreements with Tesla’s leadership or its financial reporting,” the company quoted Dave Morton as saying in a filing.

Tesla shares deepened losses to more than 5 percent after the release.
