Cruise’s CTO, a former Uber manager, is out

General Motors’ self-driving car unit, Cruise Automation, is parting ways with CTO A.G. Gangadhar, Bloomberg first reported. This comes after public complaints pertaining to his role in fostering an alleged unsafe work environment for women.

“After serious consideration, Cruise and AG have elected to part ways,” a Cruise spokesperson told TechCrunch in a statement. “We wish him the best in all future endeavors.”

Before Cruise, Gangadhar had most recently worked at Uber, where he led the company’s storage, machine learning and infrastructure groups. Gangadhar, who left Uber in July, was reportedly a director former Uber engineer Susan Fowler referenced in her blog post about mismanagement, sexual harassment and other issues at Uber. His departure, however, was reportedly unrelated to Fowler’s claims.

“Since I left Uber, I’ve been trying to move on from this story especially since I was cleared of any wrongdoing when others were not,” Gangadhar said in a statement to TechCrunch. “Over the last 6 months I built the engineering executive team at Cruise bringing in 3 top VPs from companies such as Amazon, Hyperloop etc.  One of the VP’s is a seasoned woman executive. In this competitive time of autonomous vehicles, this is no small feat. I left Cruise on good terms and only because Kyle and I had differing visions for the direction of the engineering team. Looking forward I plan to spend my time advising and investing in early stage technology companies, which is very exciting to me. This gives me the freedom to get back to what I’m passionate about; scaling teams and technologies and positioning them for success. The culture at Uber is one that I would like to put behind me, but not forget as it will forever influence the professional and personal decisions I make on a daily basis.”
