Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: NYSE: UBER ) announced on Wednesday that Prashanth Mahendra-Rajah will assume the role of Chief Financial Officer on November 13, 2023. Currently serving as the CFO of Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI ), Mahendra-Rajah is set to replace Nelson Chai who announced his departure in August after a five-year tenure.

Mahendra-Rajah brings a wealth of experience to Uber, having held financial leadership roles at several major corporations including WABCO Holdings (NYSE: WBC ), Applied Materials (NASDAQ: AMAT ), Visa (NYSE: V ), and United Technologies (NYSE: RTX ). At ADI, he was responsible for setting the financial strategy and overseeing the company’s global finance organization, including financial management, planning, controls, and reporting.

Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi expressed confidence in this strategic appointment saying, "Prashanth is an incredibly skilled and dynamic finance executive, with decades of experience across a variety of complex industries. I’m confident he’ll be able to help us deliver even more innovation and efficiency as we continue this next phase of profitable growth."

In response to his appointment, Mahendra-Rajah expressed excitement about joining Uber. "I’m delighted to join Uber, one of the world’s most iconic technology companies, at such a promising moment in its journey," he said.

Chai's departure marked the end of his term which included overseeing Uber's 2018 initial public offering after filling a role which had been vacant for three years. His successor's arrival is expected to usher in a new phase of profitable growth for the ride-sharing giant.
