FACTBOX-Uber's string of executive departures

4 Min Read

    May 31 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc           has been
rocked by several high-level executive departures in the past
few months as the ride-hailing service grapples with a series of
controversies.
    The San Francisco-based company is battling sexual
harassment claims and has been sued for potentially stealing
designs for autonomous car technology. The company also admitted
it underpaid its New York City drivers and its chief executive
was caught on tape berating a driver.
    Nearly a dozen top executives have left the company since
February. However, not all exits were voluntary.
    Uber said on Tuesday it fired Anthony Levandowski, the
former head of its self-driving unit, after he failed to comply
with a court order to hand over documents at the center of a
legal dispute between Uber and Alphabet Inc's Waymo
unit.
    Here's a list of executive departures and hirings in the
last few months:
