Jeff Jones, president of Uber, has reportedly quit the car-hailing company barely six months after taking the job.

According to report, the move was as a result of the multiple controversies there, including explosive charges of sexism and sexual harassment.

Uber confirmed the departure in a statement issued by its spokesman, it read thus;

“We want to thank Jeff for his six months at the company and wish him all the best.”

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, in note to staff said: “After we announced our intention to hire a COO, Jeff came to the tough decision that he doesn’t see his future at Uber. It is unfortunate that this was announced through the press but I thought it was important to send all of you an email before providing comment publicly.”

Jones also confirmed the departure with a blistering assessment of the company. “It is now clear, however, that the beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber, and I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business,” he said in a statement.
