Uber’s finance chief Brent Callinicos is driving off into the sunset and leaving one of the most highly valued tech startups in the world in the rear-view mirror.
The former Google executive who has been with Uber for less than two years will stay on as an advisor, chief executive Travis Kalanick told investors.
“Almost two years ago, I brought on one of the great financial operators in Silicon Valley as our CFO. Brent has done a wonderful job here at Uber but has decided that it is time for his next journey, one where his wife and daughter take the front seat,” he said in the memo, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, and seen by City A.M.
