According to The New York Times, Uber’s co-founder Travis Kalanick has quitted as CEO at the behest of five major Uber investors, including venture capital firm Benchmark, who requested for Kalanick’s immediate resignation in a letter titled “Moving Uber Forward“.
Uber seemingly endless scandals
This announcement should be the results of Uber’s endless string of scandals and social controversies over the last six months. Kalanick and his biggest fortune have suffered a months-long dramatically hard time. Troubles first rose in January 2017, when a boycott (with the hashtag #DeleteUber) swept across the social media as the company tried to profit from a taxi driver protest against President Trump’s Muslim ban. Over the next month, the netizen witnessed a tell-all blog post by a former engineer named Susan Fowler revealing the bitter work environment and multiple incidents of sexual harassment she endured at Uber. Then came a lawsuit from Google about stolen intellectual property toward the company, along with a damaging video of Kalanick fighting with an Uber driver who complained about his wages’ unfair decrease.
Uber: Facing the hardest part
First, Uber is a company with no CCO, CFO, CMO or president. The situation is getting even worse as the company has been run by a committee of executives since Mr Kalanick’s leave. Uber must find a new top executive who can help improve its public image and “Moving Uber Forward”.
