Ed Baker, Uber’s VP of Product and Growth, Resigns

As Uber deals with cascading scandals, its VP of Product and Growth Ed Baker suddenly resigned on Friday after more than three years at the company. Recode first reported the news.

Uber confirmed that Baker resigned and that its marketplace head, Daniel Graf, will step in as acting head of product. It declined to comment on the circumstances regarding Baker’s departure, and whether Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick asked for his resignation.

Baker is the second high-level executive to suddenly resign from Uber this week. On Monday, Kalanick asked Amit Singhal, Uber’s SVP of Engineering, to resign after the company learned he did not disclose a sexual harassment allegation at his old job.
