Uber loses key exec Ryan Graves

Ryan Graves has served as GM CEO and SVP of Global Operations for Uber
Ryan Graves, Uber's first employee who briefly served as its first CEO before becoming senior vice president of global operations, said Thursday he is stepping down from his day-to-day role at the company.
Graves has worked at Uber for over seven years in several positions, including GM and CEO for a time.
Graves serves as senior vice president of operations at Uber and is on the executive leadership team tasked with running the business in the absence of a chief executive officer.
"In the past 7.5 years of building Uber, I've learned so many different lessons, one of which is the fact that people who embrace uncertainty and change have the best grip on reality", Graves wrote in the email.
Uber's executive suite is practically deserted. The company is looking for a new chief executive after Kalanick was pressured to step down, and Graves said that he preferred to make his own move before the new leader was chosen.
Uber's board has in recent weeks intensified its search for a new chief executive, with reports last week that it had narrowed the search to three candidates. A former management consultant in Chicago, Graves started as general manager and was soon promoted to be the company's first CEO. Uber has fired at least 20 employees as a result of that investigation.
"In some ways my focus going forward will not actually change very much", Graves wrote.
