Uber Technologies Inc. has found its new chief legal officer in Tony West, who is currently executive vice president of government affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary at PepsiCo Inc. West will join Uber next month, according to a memo obtained by Corporate Counsel that the San Francisco-based company’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi sent to staff Friday.

“Tony is exactly what Uber needs now,” Khosrowshahi wrote. “He has public company experience leading a global team of lawyers across more than 200 countries. As a former federal prosecutor and senior Department of Justice official in the Obama Administration, he’s well equipped to handle the investigations into our past practices. And at Pepsi, he has emphasized diversity on his team and across the company.”
