Head of Finance Gupta leaves Uber

Gautam Gupta, Uber head of finance, has announced that, come July, he will no longer be with the international ride-hailing company. Instead, he will be joining another San Francisco-based startup as COO. Gupta’s moves comes as several other top Uber officers have left the company this year.

CEO Travis Kalanick said in a statement:

"Gautam is a world-class financial talent. Over the last four years, he has been indispensable in helping build Uber from an idea into the business it is today. We couldn't have done it without him, and I will miss his energy, focus and infectious enthusiasm."

Interestingly, Uber has not had a CFO since 2015 when Brent Callinicos left the company. Prabir Adarkar, head of strategic finance, will head up the finance department while the company finds a new CFO.
