Uber chief Travis Kalanick 'set for a bumpy ride' in board meeting


The report was prepared by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Board members voted unanimously to adopt all of the firm's recommendations, which were to be released to employees on Tuesday, the spokesman said. Additionally, the board also discussed the possible departure of some of Kalanick's top executives like business chief Emil Michael.

According to sources speaking with the New York Times, the question of whether Kalanick should take a leave of absense rests in the hands of Garrett Camp, Uber's chairman, and board member Ryan Graves.

The meeting, which Uber did not publicise, was a pivotal moment for the world's most valuable venture-backed private company, which upended the tightly regulated taxi industry in many countries. Reuters first reported that the board was going to discuss whether or not the embattled CEO, who is also facing a personal tragedy after the loss of mother, should take a three-month leave of absence. Separately, Uber also fired an executive last week after the company official, Eric Alexander, acquired the medical records of a customer who had allegedly been raped during a trip on Uber.

Eric Alexander, the president of business in the Asia-Pacific, was sacked June 6, just as the company announced that it had fired 20 employees over the last few months for harassment, discrimination and inappropriate behavior.

CNN Tech connected with more than twelve Uber financial specialists to inquire as to whether they trusted Kalanick will step down as CEO. CEO Travis Kalanick asked for his senior vice president of engineering, Amit Singhal, to resign in February after the company learned of sexual harassment allegations against him while he was at Google.

Uber's image, culture and practices have been largely defined by Kalanick's brash approach, company insiders and investors previously told Reuters.

While Kalanick's position in the company is relatively safe considering the "founder-friendly" governance structure at Uber, that of his allies might not be. Weakened by a barrage of scandals, the future of Uber's executives could be determined by the recommendations from Holder's report. Inside Uber, some there is some uncertainty about organization's control to change with Kalanick and Michael, his right-hand man, in control, as indicated by one previous representative. She added that she was committed to getting the number of harassment complaints at Uber down to zero. In part, the move was done because some executives at Uber were reportedly skeptical about the assault and believed it was orchestrated by Ola, a local competitor.
