Kellyn Smith Kenny, Uber's vice president of marketing, is heading to Hilton Worldwide as the hotel company's chief marketing officer, she announced on Thursday. She joined the ride-hailing company last year after more than a decade at Capital One and Microsoft.

Why it matters: Smith Kenny is the latest executive to depart this year. Others include its CEO, head of finance, head of public relations, chief legal officer and head of ride-sharing.
