Uber stock hit by executive shake-up a month after the IPO: COO + CMO raus!

...Shares of Uber Technologies Inc. fell more than 1% in the extended session Friday after Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi said in an email to employees the ride-hailing company’s chief operating officer and chief marketing officer are leaving.

Khosrowshahi said in the email that he and COO Barney Harford had agreed that the chief operation officer role at Uber “no longer makes sense” now that Khosrowshahi, a month past the company’s initial public offering, had more time to be “even more involved” in Uber’s day-to-day operations. Harford will stay on until July 1 to help with the transition.

The marketing, policy and communications teams will be combined into one, led by Jill Hazelbaker, the former senior vice president of communications and public policy, Khosrowshahi said in the email. Chief Marketing Officer Rebecca Messina is leaving after nine months on the job.

COO Harford previously was the CEO of Orbitz and was named Uber’s COO in 2017.

The news “comes as a shock” for Wall Street and “clearly one of the last things investors wanted to see with the stock currently coming under pressure,” analysts at Wedbush said in a note late Friday...


=> mir kann niemand erzählen, daß das so gedacht war. Uber 2017 selber:

...I’m happy to announce that Barney Harford will be joining Uber as Chief Operating Officer, starting January 2.

Barney is the former CEO of Orbitz. He has deep experience building and managing two-sided marketplaces and has served as an advisor to Uber since October, so you may have already seen him around. He’s spent the last few months learning how Uber works and developing perspectives on how it can work even better in the future, so he’ll hit the ground running in January.

I have never met a stronger operator or a more thoughtful strategist than Barney. He is able to go deep on key aspects of a business while never losing sight of the big strategic picture. He loves engaging with operations, marketing, product, and engineering teams around hard problems, and is passionate about using technology to transform the world.

Barney came to the US from the UK in 1999 to work at Expedia when it was still part of Microsoft. We worked together after I joined as Expedia as CEO, and he was leading the company’s push into Asia. In 2009 he joined Orbitz and went on to turn that company into such a success that I just had to acquire it! 🙂...
