In a filing at SEC, Arianna said that “She doesn’t think she can devote her time as being the Uber board member, due to the expansion of her own company business.”
“Given Thrive’s growth, it has become clear to me that I will no longer be able to give my Uber board duties the attention they deserve. So I will be stepping down,” she said.
Today I told my fellow @Uber board members that given @Thrive's growth, I will no longer be able to give my board duties the attention they deserve, so I will be stepping down.
