ISSUE – Aug. 8 | Uber Tries to Rein in Kalanick’s Bid for Influence

Uber Technologies Inc. executives are trying to ease tensions stemming from Travis Kalanick’s attempts, in the weeks since he was ousted, to remain involved with the business and eventually seek a new role there. Garrett Camp, an Uber co-founder and board member, sought to reassure employees on Monday that the search for a new leader is the board’s top priority. In a staff email, Camp said Kalanick won’t return as chief executive officer, responding to reports by Bloomberg and others that the former CEO had privately expressed interest in coming back to Uber in a new full-time position. [ Bloomberg ] [ Re/Code ]
