Scott Schools, the Justice Department’s highest ranking career official, and a close adviser to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, is joining Uber Technologies Inc., the Wall Street Journal reports.
Schools becomes the company’s first chief compliance officer, as the ride-hailing giant seeks to move past a series of regulatory problems and other controversies ahead of a highly anticipated initial public offering next year, the Journal rights.
Uber is expected to announce the hiring to staff on Tuesday.
School departed the Justice Department last week, an agency that has come under constant attack by President Donald Trump.
