Uber has seen an exodus of senior managers in recent months, including CEO Travis Kalanick, amid heightened scrutiny of its workplace culture prompted by sexual harassment allegations by a former engineer.
Among the people who’ve left or announced departures, either under pressure or for other reasons, are seven executives who had reported to Mr. Kalanick: SVP of Business Emil Michael, who is one of Mr. Kalanick's best friends and was the second-most powerful person at the company; ridesharing president Jeff Jones (ostensibly the No. 2 executive for Uber’s core business); head of growth Ed Baker; engineering vice president Amit Singhal; communications and public policy chief Rachel Whetstone; head of finance Gautam Gupta; and Anthony Levandowski, head of Uber’s autonomous vehicles program, who was fired amid theft allegations made against him by his former employer. Other departures include mapping chief Brian McClendon, who had reported to Mr. Singhal, and Eric Alexander, who had reported to Mr. Michael and was fired for actions Uber took to research the rape of a woman by an Uber driver in India.
In the light of these events, we’ve updated our Uber org chart. We plan to keep updating this chart as Uber’s management evolves in coming months.
