Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick, resigns
Travis Kalanick explained that he was leaving Uber. The CEO of the private transportation service, which has recently been in frequent controversy and scandal, has left the company for a while for the loss of his mother recently.
According to The New York Times, a group of important Uber investors in Kalanick’s case was influential. It was stated that Kalanick’s endorsements were finally accepted. Kalanick, who will not leave the board despite the fact that he has left the CEO, has control of the majority of the voting rights of the company.
Kalanick, speaking to The New York Times after his resignation, used the following phrases: “I love Uber more than anything in the world. In this challenging period in my private life, I leave the task by accepting requests from investors. So I can go back to rebuild instead of distracting another fight. ”
In the statement made by the company’s board of directors, Kalanick noted that the priority is always in Uber. Evaluating the resignation as a “bold decision”, the board stated that it was a sign of Kalanick’s love for Uber and his commitment. In the statement, Kalanick retreated and said that he had opened up a healing area after the sufferings he had suffered and gave Uber a new era in his history. It was also reminded that Kalanick will continue to serve on the board of directors.
Uber 2017’de “scandal” could be described as events. Faced with sexual harassment claims first, the company was shaken by the emergence of images that Kalanick later discussed with a driver. On the other hand, several high-level roads have been set aside for several months in Uber, which is accused by Google of drive-less automobile initiative Waymo’s immorality of intellectual property.
Travis Kalanick’s name was almost synonymous with the company, which he set up in 2009. The company’s aggressive strategies were described as indicative of Kalanick’s warrior structure. Although these strategies enabled Uber to turn into a transportation giant in a short period of time, he had also taken the company to the brink of dispute. After Kalanick’s departure from the CEO title, he is wondering how to approach the company and its culture and strategy.
