Uber has hired its very first chief compliance and ethics officer Scott Schools, formerly of the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

Schools stepped down from his post as associate deputy attorney general and adviser to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last Thursday. While at the DOJ, Schools is reported to have been influential in probe into the Trump campaign and its connections to Russia.

Schools told the Wall Street Journal that Uber started courting him in February. “The opportunity at Uber was so exciting to me and was something new and incredibly challenging,” he told the Journal. “I felt like the department had gotten to the place where they could continue to address the issues they are dealing with effectively without me.”

Schools will report to Uber’s chief legal officer Tony West, who is also an alumnus of the Department of Justice.
