Uber's top dealmaker Cameron Poetzscher ... -
« on: October 22, 2018, 05:33:39 PM »
Uber executive Cameron Poetzscher, who led corporate development at the ride-hailing startup, has resigned following reports of an investigation into sexual misconduct, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Cameron Poetzscher, a longtime executive in charge of corporate deals, has resigned. His departure, which follows allegations of sexual misconduct, leaves another vacancy in Uberís finance department as the ride-hailing company races toward an initial public offering targeted for the first half of next year.

Poetzscher, a close advisor to CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, led Uber through its $7.7 billion investment from SoftBank. In addition, Poetzscher played a key role in negotiating this yearís $9.3 billion deal with SoftBank Group Corp.
Though the investigation took place a year ago, the allegations weren't made public until a September 2018 report in the Journal. Poetzscher was formally disciplined in November 2017, according to the report, though some people at the company argued he should have been fired.
