The company's chief product officer and head of its Elevate flying car division Jeff Holden has left the company, according to Recode. In a statement to the news outlet, Uber would only say that Holden is moving on to another position. Where he's headed and in what capacity is unknown.

Holden's departure comes just a week after Uber held its second-annual Elevate conference, where it touted its flying car concept. The vehicle has four propellers that allow it to take off from the ground. A single rotor on the tail moves the flying car forward. Up to four passengers can travel in the vehicle at any time and a pilot will fly them to their destinations.

It seems like every time Uber announces some big news, the person in charge of it resigns soon after.

The guy who introduced the 180 days of change at the hub last year (Chris Ballard), was gone by day 60 - right as things started to unravel.

BTW, I understand Jeff Holden was also the mastermind behind Pool.

Moving on to another position is the polite way of saying his ass got fired. It's a 9-5 executive space "thing."

Uber's chief product officer, Jeff Holden, is leaving the company. Holden helped develop Uber Pool and most recently led Uber's flying car effort, called Elevate. One of the few holdouts at Uber who was considered part of ousted CEO Travis Kalanick's inner circle, Holden notoriously helped Kalanick come up with some of the company's more controversial corporate values, such as "always be hustlin'," "principled confrontation" and "toe-stepping."
