Uber President Resigns 6 Months After Taking The Job

The last few months have been pretty hard for Uber, so hard the company’s new president couldn’t take it anymore. After serving his post for only six months, Jeff Jones, the president of the rideshare company, has resigned.


Jones joined Uber in September after leaving Target where he was chief marketing officer. The details surrounding Jones’ departure have not been made public, but sources say that it is directly related to the company’s recent controversies.


In a statement to Recode.net, Jones says, “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.”


The news comes just days after the company’s CEO, Travis Kalanick, said they’d be hiring a chief operating officer who can help write the company’s “next chapter.”
