Brent Callinicos Uber’s CFO Steps Down to Spend More Time with Family

Brent Callinicos, the CFO of fast growing car sharing service Uber is leaving his post after working with company for two years.

According to Callinicos he is leaving his position at the company so that he can be with his wife and daughter for longer hours, spending time with them.

He wrote in an email to the team "It is time to do what I have desired for a very long time; time to keep a promise to my wife of not missing another school play, swim meet, or academic achievement of our daughter's childhood."

Callinicos after working for twenty one years in companies like Microsoft and Google, joined Uber in 2013 September. When Callinicos joined the company it was just a small startup and was about one tenth of its present size.

Travis Kalanick, Uber's CEO wrote an email announcing the CFO's departure. However, the CEO also announced that Callinicos will remain as Uber's advisor. Though he did not name a permanent replacement for Callinicos but mentioned that Gautam Gupta, the "right hand" of the departing CFO will be acting as the head finance department.

In its latest round of funding, Uber recently gathered $2.8 billion. The company is valued at $40 billion. The company lends its services fifty three countries and is growing rapidly.
