NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Uber’s [UBER.UL] chief of policy for India and South Asia has quit, two sources familiar with the matter said on Monday, in the latest high-level departure at the online taxi company.
Shweta Rajpal Kohli, a former Indian journalist who joined Uber last year, would join cloud-based software maker Salesforce.com Inc next month, the sources told Reuters.
Uber said it did not have an immediate comment. Kohli did not respond to an email seeking comment.
Kohli was mostly tasked with building Uber’s relations with regulators and government officials in India, a market where the firm has faced several regulatory and reputational hurdles.
One source said Kohli “was leading government engagements in the influential circles, so her exit is a step back for Uber.”
