UBER PRESIDENT QUITS AFTER SIX MONTHS ON THE JOB
(CNN) – Uber’s president is leaving the company after six months on the job.
The ride-sharing service confirmed Sunday that Jeff Jones is quitting.
He was Uber’s second-in-command after CEO Travis Kalanick.
In a letter to employees, he said Jones decided to leave after Uber announced it would hire a chief operating officer.
Several other executives have left in recent weeks, as Uber was hit by a string of controversies.
The latest one was a New York Times report that Uber developed a tool to deceive authorities in cities that banned or limited Uber’s operations.
