Deepening Turmoil as Uber President Quits
This road’s leading downward. The troubles just won’t stop for the world’s foremost car-hailing company. Uber’s president and No. 2 executive, Jeff Jones, has elected to leave after less than a year, saying in a statement that his beliefs and approach to leadership were “inconsistent with what I saw and experienced there.” Jones’ resignation is just the latest blow to Uber, which has been reeling from a string of scandals ranging from claims of sexual harassment to a lawsuit over allegedly stolen trade secrets to multiple #DeleteUber boycott campaigns.
