Jeff Jones quit, citing differences over “beliefs and approach to leadership”

Jeff Jones quit Uber in March 2017 after less than a year as President of the company. He explained his departure in a statement:

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.

Jones had previously served as the Chief Marketing Officer at Target.

Commenting on Jones’ departure, then-CEO Travis Kalanick remarked that “It is unfortunate that [Jones’ departure] was announced through the press.”
