Uber’s COO and CMO are stepping down a month after its IPO

Just a month after its IPO, two members of Uber’s C-suite are stepping down, according to CNBC.

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi reportedly sent an email on Friday announcing that Barney Harford, the ride-hailing company’s COO, and Rebecca Messina, the CMO, are stepping down. Khosrowshahi wrote that the IPO has “allowed him to be even more involved in the day-to-day operations of Uber’s biggest businesses, the core platforms of Rides and Eats.”
據報道首席執行官Dara Khosrowshahi周五在一封郵件中宣布這家打車公司的首席運營官Barney Harford和首席營銷官Rebecca Messina將離職。Khosrowshahi寫道上市“讓他更多地參與到了出行和送餐的核心平臺的每日運營中了,而這正是Uber最大的業務。”


As a result, he has decided that the heads of those divisions should report directly to him, and that Harford’s role as COO “no longer made sense.”

Khosrowshahi also made the decision to combine Uber’s marketing, communications, and policy team, which resulted in Messina’s upcoming departure.

Jill Hazelbaker, previously senior vice president of communication and public policy, will reportedly lead the newly merged team.
曾任溝通與公共政策高級副總裁的Jill Hazelbaker據報道將會帶領合并后的團隊。
