FACTBOX-Kalanick tops string of executive departures at Uber

4 Min Read

    June 13 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc's           Chief
Executive Travis Kalanick on Tuesday said he would take time
away from the company he helped to found, topping a slew of
high-level executive departures in the past few months.

    About a dozen top executives have left the ride-hailing
company since February. However, not all exits were voluntary. 
    The company also adopted a number of recommendations from
the law firm of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, hired
to look into its culture and practices.
    Kalanick, 40, did not disclose how long he would be away
from the world's most valuable venture-backed company.

few months:
