Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to Take Leave of Absence

Mike Isaac, reporting for the NYT:

Travis Kalanick, Uber’s chief executive, will take a leave of absence from the ride-hailing company, according to an internal email sent to employees.

Mr. Kalanick said he would be taking a leave in order to work on himself and reflect on building a “world class leadership team” for the company. He did not specify how long he will take away from the company.

“The ultimate responsibility, for where we’ve gotten and how we’ve gotten here rests on my shoulders,” Mr. Kalanick wrote in the email. “There is of course much to be proud of but there is much to improve.”

Every day that passes with Uber news is another day I don't regret moving to Lyft.
