2 of Uber's top executives have left the company

Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi told employees in an email"I felt this was a good moment to simplify our org

In a letter to employees, Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi explained the reasoning behind the departures, saying that recent organizational changes have lessened the significance of the COO and CMO positions.

As Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi seeks to take more control of the company's operations, the ride hailing major's Chief Operating Officer Barney Harford and Chief Marketing Officer Rebecca Messina are stepping down.

Dara Khosrowshahi decided that the heads of Uber's core business should report to him directly as he wanted to be more directly involved in Uber's day-to-day operations. What impact will this have on you pressing a button and getting something delivered or hopping into a stranger's auto for a ride?

Two of Uber's top executives were pushed aside last week in a management shake-up at the ride-share company following its lackluster initial public offering.

As share of the reorganisation, which used to be detailed in the memo considered by several news outlets, Mr Khosrowshahi said he had eliminated the map of COO, which Barney Harford had held since January 2018.

Uber did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider. The investigation was closed a year ago and found no evidence of discrimination, the company said. He also promoted two longtime Uber executives to help fill the void. "Given that we're a month past the IPO, now is one of those times", Khosrowshahi wrote in an email Friday to employees. "Given that we're a month past the IPO, now is one of those times, and I've been discussing this topic a lot with Barney and the leadership team", TechCrunch quotes Khosrowshahi as writing in the email.

Uber shares that ended the formal trading day down slipped 1.2 per cent to $43.63 in after-market trades. Harford, who had led travel site Orbitz Worldwide Inc., joined Khosrowshahi to help prep Uber for the IPO.

Messina, a former executive with Coca-Cola and liquor maker Beam Suntory, served a short stint at Uber.
