FACTBOX-Uber keeps losing top executives despite new CEO

Sept 27 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc's Head

of External Affairs Dave Clark resigned on Wednesday, according to a Recode report, the second executive to depart after Dara Khosrowshahi replaced co-founder Travis Kalanick as chief executive in August. Clark was part of Kalanick's tight-knit group of executives, but his exit does not seem to be the result of any management house cleaning by Khosrowshahi, Recode said. (http://bit.ly/2ysThUW) Uber, poached Expedia Inc's CEO Khosrowshahi for the top job at the company, putting him in charge of turning around the loss-making, scandal-ridden company. Khosrowshahi's appointment comes after Kalanick, who was Uber's chief executive and co-founder, resigned in June, following increasing pressure from investors over his leadership. The ride-hailing company has seen the exit of more than a dozen senior executives, including Kalanick, since February. However, not all departures were voluntary.
