Khosrowshahi credited the maturing of operations at the San Francisco-based company and the completion of its initial public offering last month with enabling him to make the management moves.

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi reportedly sent an email on Friday announcing that Barney Harford, the ride-hailing company's COO, and Rebecca Messina, the CMO, are stepping down.

"There's never really a right time to announce departures or changes like this, but with the IPO behind us, I felt this was a good moment to simplify our org and set us up for the future", Khosrowshahi said in an email to employees, as seen by The Washington Post.

As part of the reorganization, Khosrowshahi has eliminated the position of chief operating officer and Barney Harford, who was named in the role in January 2018, has stepped down.

As part of the same overhaul, Khosrowshahi also made a decision to combine Uber's marketing, communications and policy teams, which according to him would help maintain a "unified narrative to consumers, partners, the press, and policymakers". Khosrowshahi wrote that on the marketing side, the company needed to provide a "consistent, unified narrative to consumers, partners, the press and policymakers".

The decision comes almost a month after a shaky start to Uber's listing on the New York Stock Exchange. "It's been an honor". An investigation was launched by Uber last summer. Its stock broke above its IPO price of $45 per share for the first time since its May 10 public debut on Wednesday.

Messina's tenure at Uber lasted just 9 months. Jill Hazelbaker, previously senior vice president of communication and public policy, will reportedly lead the newly merged team.

Khosrowshahi wrote in the email that "marketing is so important to our business, and our brand continues to be challenged".
