Uber’s President Calls is Quits After 6 Months on the Job

Jeff Jones

Peace out, Jeff!

CEO Travis Kalanick sent out an email confirming that the former Target CMO Jeff Jones will be leaving his role after about six months.
LOL, that’s all it takes to want to leave Uber, six whole months.

According to Recode, sources said Jones determined that this was not the situation he signed on for, especially after Uber CEO Travis Kalanick announced a search for a new COO to help him right the very troubled ship. However, source added that a COO wasn’t the sold reason for leaving. Instead, these sources said, Jones determined that the situation at the company was more problematic than he realized.

Jeff Jones issued the following statement:

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, and I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business.

There are thousands of amazing people at the company, and I truly wish everyone well.
