  • Uber's Former CEO Kalanick To Hold The Top Position In The Company

A person close to Sheryl Sandberg tells The Associated Press that the Facebook chief operating officer has no plans to leave the company. Kalanick said in a statement to The New York Times on Tuesday that he has accepted a request from investors to step aside.

"I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this hard moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors' request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight", Kalanick said in an email to employees that was seen by Reuters. This is a bold decision and a sign of his devotion and love for Uber.

In recent months, Uber has fired more than 20 employees after an investigation into the company's culture, embarked on major changes to professionalize its workplace, and is searching for new executives including a chief operating officer.

Earlier this year, Uber came under fire through a #DeleteUber campaign, following Kalanick's acceptance to serve as an adviser to US President Donald Trump. He said Uber's day-to-day management would fall to a committee of more than 10 executives.

The Uber board said in a statement to the Times that Kalanick had "always put Uber first" and that his resignation would give the company "room to fully embrace this new chapter in Uber's history". Uber is now in the process of searching to fill the roles of CEO, CFO, COO, president, and senior vice president of business.

Kalanick and other executives were also criticised for the handling of a crisis in India after an Uber driver was arrested for raping a passenger.

Eric Alexander, the head of Asian business for Uber, shared medical records internally, including with Kalanick.

Even some of Kalanick's staunchest allies have found fault with how Uber has been run.

March 3 - Another former Uber engineer, Keala Lusk, publishes a blog post complaining of sexism at the company. Because some of the investors hold a type of stock that endows them with an outsize number of votes, they have about 40 percent of Uber's voting power.

Uber board member and investor, Bill Gurley, tweeted about Kalanick's impact on the world. Just last week, Kalanick had announced that he was taking an indefinite leave of absence, although we now know that he's relinquishing the CEO title.
