Uber said Wednesday its chief executive Travis Kalanick has stepped down from his job, confirming a report in the New York Times.
Kalanick had already been on a leave of absence aimed at restoring confidence in the scandal-plagued ridesharing giant, but on Tuesday quit completely after five of the company's major investors demanded his departure, the paper said.
He also quoted from a board statement saying that "Travis has always put Uber first".
"This is a bold decision and a sign of his devotion and love for Uber," the board said.
The pioneering company has been facing pressure to rein in a no-holds-barred management style led by Kalanick and to reform its workplace culture, which has sparked charges of harassment and discrimination.
Kalanick is to stay on as a board member, Uber said.Güncelleme Tarihi: 21 Haziran 2017, 10:19
