After 6 Months Uber President Resigns

Jeff Jones, President of Ride services company, Uber Technologies Inc has departed the company.

An Uber spokesman, Sophie Schmidt, in statement issued yesterday in San Francisco confirmed that Jones quit just over six months after joining the company.

Jones explained that he could not continue as president of a business with which he was incompatible.

“I joined Uber because of its mission, and the challenge to build global capabilities that would help the company mature and thrive long term. 
“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. 
“I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business,” Jones said.
Jones wished the “thousands of amazing people at the company” well.

Jones’ role was put into question after Uber earlier this month launched a search for a chief operating officer (COO) to help run the company alongside Chief Executive Travis Kalanick.

Jones had been performing some of those COO responsibilities.

He joined Uber from Target Corp, where he was chief marketing officer and is credited with modernising the retailer’s brand.
