“I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this difficult 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.
These are the word of an emotional CEO of a company he founded and turned into a global giant. These are the words by Travis Kanaick.
Kalanick had already taken leave from the company last week following the death of his mother in a boating accident.
But the move failed to defuse a growing crisis over his leadership and demands from investors that he resign.
Travis Cordell Kalanick is an American computer programmer and businessman. He is also the co-founder of the peer-to-peer file sharing company Red Swoosh.
