Uber’s International Chief to Leave by Year-End
Uber Technologies Inc.’s top operations executive outside the U.S. will leave the company, following a reorganization aimed at making Uber more nimble in the face of competitive and regulatory challenges from Shanghai to London.
Niall Wass, who joined the car-hailing company just 16 months ago from U.K.-based payday lender Wonga, last month left his role heading operations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, a spokesman for Uber said Wednesday. Mr. Wass will officially leave the company by year-end.
Regional chiefs across the vast swath of territory that Mr. Wass headed now report directly to Ryan Graves, longtime Uber operations chief in San Francisco, as part of a new, “flatter organizational structure,” the spokesman said. Details
