The head of communications at Uber Technologies Inc. is leaving the company, becoming the latest executive to depart amid a series of scandals. Rachel Whetstone’s resignation was announced in an internal email to company employees on Tuesday, the New York Times reported. Travis Kalanick, the ride-hailing company’s chief executive, said she was parting with the company on good terms and of her own accord. Whetstone, who joined Uber in 2015, issued a statement full of warm words for the company. “I joined Uber because I love the product — and that love is as strong today as it was when I booked my very first ride six years ago,” she said. Whetstone had helped the company through its most recent scandals, including harassment allegations by former employees that triggered an internal investigation. Whetstone’s departure comes after Jeff Jones resigned as president last month, shortly after Ed Baker, the company’s vice president of product and growth, stepped down.
