Jeff Holden, Uber Technologies’ Chief Product Officer leaves ride services firm

Jeff Holden’s departure is the latest in a series of senior executives leading the company.

A spokesman for Uber Technologies Inc stated, Jeff Holden, its Chief Product Officer will be leaving the company. The development marks the latest departure of more than a dozen senior executives from Uber since last year.

Holden used to oversee Uber’s flying car operation called Uber Elevate; this will now be headed by Eric Allison, said Uber’s spokesman while declining to elaborate on the reason for his departure.

Salle Yoo, Uber’s chief legal officer, along with Dave Clark, head of its external affairs, left the company in September 2017.

Ever since Uber’s new CEO took office in August 2017, Dara Khosrowshahi has shaken up the company and worked to improve its reputation.

Earlier this week, Uber, along with Lyft, has scrapped mandatory arbitration to settle sexual harassment or assault claims and has given victims several options to pursue their claims, including public lawsuits.

In April 2018, Uber also launched a new app for its drivers in order to improve relations with drivers.

Uber is searching for a CFO, lying vacant since 2015, who can help it go public in 2019.
