FACTBOX-Uber keeps losing top executives despite new CEO

    Sept 27 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc's           Head
of External Affairs Dave Clark resigned on Wednesday, according
to a Recode report, the  
second executive to depart after Dara Khosrowshahi replaced
co-founder Travis Kalanick as chief executive in August.
    Clark was part of Kalanick's tight-knit group of executives,
but his exit does not seem to be the result of any management
house cleaning by Khosrowshahi, Recode said. (bit.ly/2ysThUW)
    Uber, poached Expedia Inc's CEO Khosrowshahi for
the top job at the company, putting him in charge of turning
around the loss-making, scandal-ridden company.
    Khosrowshahi's appointment comes after Kalanick, who was
Uber's chief executive and co-founder, resigned in June,
following increasing pressure from investors over his
leadership.
    The ride-hailing company has seen the exit of more than a
dozen senior executives, including Kalanick, since February.
However, not all departures were voluntary.
