Tesla Inc. is filling a significant void in its finance team with a former chief financial officer of computer-drive maker Seagate Technology Plc.

Dave Morton, who had worked for Seagate since 1995, has joined Tesla as chief accounting officer, the electric-car maker said in a blog post. Morton, 46, will earn an annual base salary of $350,000 and receive a $10 million new-hire equity grant that vests over four years, according to a regulatory filing.
