Jeff Jones Uber’s president quit as controversies hit the company.



Jeff Jones Uber’s president has quit less than seven months after joining, pushing the San Francisco Company deeper into chaos.
Jones joined Uber from Target where has was the chief marketing officer and is credited with modernizing the retailer's brand. He has been performing the responsibilities of a COO at Uber.

The company launched a search for a chief operating officer earlier recently putting Jones role into question.
At Uber his task includes overseeing the majority of the company's global operations that includes leading the ride-hailing program running local Uber services in every city, marketing and customer service, and working with drivers. Jones was highly placed in the company and was seen as Kalanick’s second man.
In a company statement released recently, the spokesman said “We want to thank Jeff for his six months at the company and wish him all the best.

Uber has seen high-level executives leaving the company. Recently, Amit Singhal Uber’s engineering executive, was asked to resign because of a sexual harassment allegation from his previous job at Alphabet Inc's Google.
While Ed Baker, Uber's vice president of product and growth, and Charlie Miller, Uber's top security researcher also left.

During the last couple of months, Uber has seen its reputation battered with multiple controversies putting CEO Kalanick's leadership capabilities and the company's future into question.

Last month a former Uber employee published a blog post describing the company as a place where sexual harassment flourishes, prompting investigation lead by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Also, a video showing Kalanick berating an Uber driver was released by Bloomberg prompting a public apology from Kalanick.
