Cameron Poetzscher, Uber's top dealmaker and head of corporate development, has resigned from the company following reports last month of an investigation last year into alleged sexual misconduct, as the Wall Street Journal first reported and Uber has confirmed to Axios.

Why it matters: Poetzscher's departure is the latest from Uber under new-CEO Dara Khosrowshahi over workplace conduct (HR chief Liane Hornsey left in July).

  • According to the WSJ, Poetzscher was given a formal warning nearly a year ago and mandated to take sensitivity training following that investigation, so it remains unclear what prompted his resignation now. Uber declined to provide further details.
