FACTBOX-Uber CEO Kalanick resigns after investors demand change

    June 21 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc           Chief
Executive Travis Kalanick resigned on Tuesday, following
increasing pressure from investors over his leadership.
    Kalanick, co-founder of one of the most influential
technology companies of its generation, has faced increased
scrutiny in recent weeks following an investigation into the
culture and workplace practices at the ride-hailing service.

    Kalanick's departure tops the list of more than a dozen
senior executives who have left Uber since February. However,
not all exits were voluntary.

few months:
