REFILE-FACTBOX-Uber CEO Kalanick takes leave of absence, director resigns

 (Changes dateline to June 14 from June 13)
    June 14 (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc's           Chief
Executive Travis Kalanick said on Tuesday he would take time
away from the company he helped to found, following 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. 
    Uber, the world's most valuable venture-backed 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 company.

few months:
