DoorDash snares Uber's finance chief

Prabir Adarkar is stepping down as head of strategic finance with Uber, in order to become CFO of on-demand meal delivery company DoorDash.

Why it matters: Uber is in the midst of a long search for a CFO of its own, and Adarkar's move leaves it without even a de facto one.

  • Cam Poetzscher, Uber's VP of corporate development, will oversee Uber's finance team in the interim until the CFO is named, per a company spokesperson.

Below is an interview conducted yesterday in Aspen at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference, with DoorDash CEO Tony Xu and Sequoia Capital partner Alfred Lin.

Why it matters: The amended deal reflects the decline in Sprint's business, while leaving most shareholders' stake intact and removing another hurdle to the deal's closure.
