"We look forward to continuing to serve with him on the board".

A successor was not immediately announced. The move, which comes as a surprise to employees, plunges one of the largest private companies on Earth into an even bigger leadership vacuum.

By some measures, Uber was performing pretty well.

March 3 - The New York Times reveals Uber has been using a tool called Greyball to evade law enforcement. Gartner analyst Michael Ramsey said a good CEO candidate could emerge from those who remain.

Uber's Chief Business Officer Emil Michael left the company last week. This way, Kalnick can take a leave of absence and focus on improving his personal life.

"It's simply impossible that the company has 14,000 bad apples in it", he said. Cush was named CEO of Virgin America in 2007, shortly after the Richard Branson-backed carrier began flying.
