Uber Loses Its Chief Product Officer

JEFF HOLDEN

Uber’s chief product officer, Jeff Holden, said he is leaving the company after a four-year stint that included the development of the company’s carpool service and oversight of its flying-taxi initiative.

Mr. Holden told colleagues his last day at the San Francisco ride-hailing firm is Thursday, a spokesman confirmed. Uber didn’t say if Mr. Holden had a new job lined up.

Uber’s former chief executive, Travis Kalanick, hired Mr. Holden four years ago from Groupon Inc. where he also was product chief. Mr. Holden also spent about nine years at Amazon.com Inc., where he was known for helping to lead the development of the Amazon Prime membership program.
