US electric car maker Tesla has laid off its Singapore country manager after its Founder and Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk warned of global job cuts early this month.

“Tesla announced a 10 percent of workforce reduction. My role was chosen to be eliminated as of today,” the firm’s country manager in Singapore Christopher Bousigues wrote in a LinkedIn post on Sunday. “Am proud to have been the company’s first country manager in Southeast Asia, and establishing the business in Singapore.”

According to his LinkedIn profile, he joined Tesla in June last year.

“In the past year the team and I built the business from the ground up, made of the Model 3 a common sight in the Singapore car landscape, set up 2 showrooms, 1 service center (that I affectionately call the Jewel of Asia), developed a network of 7 superchargers across the island, and successfully launched Model Y yesterday with overwhelming response,” Bousigues said.

Earlier this month, in an email to executives seen by Reuters, Musk said he has a “super bad feeling” about the economy and wants to cut about 10 percent of jobs at the company.

Tesla employed around 100,000 people at the end of 2021, according to the report, citing the company’s annual Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing.
