Uber Chief Product Officer to LeaveUber Chief Product Officer to Leave

Uber Technologies Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden is leaving the ride-hailing company, the latest of more than a dozen senior executives to depart since last year. Holden oversaw Uber Elevate, the company’s flying car operation, which is now headed by Eric Allison, an Uber spokesman said, but declined to elaborate on the reason for his departure, CNBC reported. New Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi has been shaking up the company since taking over last August aiming to improve Uber’s reputation after a string of scandals. Uber, along with Lyft, scrapped mandatory arbitration to settle sexual harassment or assault claims earlier this week, giving victims several options to pursue their claims including public lawsuits. Uber also launched a new app for its drivers last month, in an effort to improve an often contentious relationship.
