Uber CEO's right-hand man is out

Uber CEO's right-hand man is out

That report is due out early this coming week, and will focus on how to fix broader issues surrounding the company culture at Uber. That would effectively remove one of Kalanick's allies from the company and destabilize the top level of leadership at Uber.

Uber's board of executives voted Sunday to accept all of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's recommendations in his internal investigation of the company's months-long crisis over allegations of sexual harassment - but it didn't say what they are.

Emil Michael, the chief business officer who took Uber from operations in a handful of cities to an worldwide ride-hailing juggernaut, has left - the latest in a string of executive departures at a precarious time for company.

Kalanick proposed the idea of taking time off after a boating accident last month that killed his mother and sent his father to the hospital. Still, it's not hard to connect a leave of absence to the investigation as well. Michael was understood to be the second most powerful person at Uber after CEO Travis Kalanick.

Uber is valued at nearly US$70bn but is yet to make a profit. Under the report's recommendations, Emil Michael, Uber's senior vice president of business, could also be forced out, according to the New York Times.

Well, because it has once again brought up a topic which has been a thorn in the side of Sony this console generation: cross-play. The last big announcement in Minecraft's Better Together Update consists of some major enhancements to the graphics of the game .

Uber's self-driving auto program is in jeopardy after a lawsuit from Alphabet Inc alleging trade secrets theft, and the company has suffered an exodus of several of its top executives. Additionally, the board also discussed the possible departure of some of Kalanick's top executives like business chief Emil Michael. Uber too, will be devoid of a leader and this may come as a huge blow for the company as the cab-hailing market turns competitive across the globe.

But Mr Kalanick, 40, said earlier this year that he needed to "fundamentally change and grow up". Neither Kalanick nor Holder's law firm, Covington & Burling, responded to requests for comment.

In addition to firing 20 employees, Uber said Tuesday that it was hiring an Apple marketing executive, Bozoma Saint John, to help improve its tarnished brand.

With there being a leadership void, Uber has now hired two women as senior executives. NY general manager, Josh Mohrer, and the head of Uber's self-driving unit, have also resigned. The manager wasn't punished because Uber superiors rated him as a "high performer" and concluded the reported episode was his "first offense", Fowler said.
