FACTBOX-Kalanick tops string of executive departures at Uber

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. A list of executive departures and appointments in the last few months:
