Here Are All the Executives Who Have Left Uber in the Last Month
Another day, another Uber executive departure.
Brian McClendon, vice president of the ride-hailing startup’s maps and business platform, will leave by the end of the month, according to Recode. McClendon says he is leaving Uber amicably to “explore politics” in Kansas. His last day will be March 28.
His departure comes a day Uber announced that President Jeff Jones resigned – only six months after he joined the company. Jones, who’d previously served as chief marketing officer at Target, was seen as a counterpart to Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. So when Kalanick announced earlier this month that he would hire a chief operating officer to help him run the company, Jones’s role came into question.
“It is now clear, however, that the beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber, and I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business,” Jones said in a statement to Recode.
The two executives are leaving in the midst of turmoil at Uber. In the past few weeks, the company has been in the spotlight for sexual harassment allegations, questionable leadership practices, and a social media #DeleteUber boycott.
Since Kalanick ordered an urgent internal investigation into the sexual harassment claims, seven top-ranking executives have left the company. And this might not be the end. According to Recode, more departures are expected now that Uber staffers have received bonuses on March 15 related to employee reviews.
Here are all the Uber executives who have left the company:
- Brian McClendon, Uber vice president of maps
- Jeff Jones, Uber president
- Gary Marcus, Uber AI Labs director
- Raffi Krikorian, senior director of engineering at Uber’s Advanced Technologies Center
- Charlie Miller, senior engineer of Uber’s autonomous driving division
- Ed Baker, Uber’s vice president of product and growth
- Amit Singhal, Uber’s senior vice president of engineering
