Uber co-founder and board member Garrett Camp told employees that the company's former CEO Travis Kalanick isn't returning to fill his prior role, sources told Recode. In an email to staff on Monday, Camp addressed recent reports that Kalanick was attempting to come back as CEO.
Camp wrote that he received several questions about the CEO search when he attended a product leadership all-hands last week.
The ride-hail company is in the middle of finding a replacement for Kalanick after he was ousted by a handful of major shareholders. The board has since narrowed down that search to four people but not without some meddling from Kalanick. As Recode reported, Kalanick has been telling people he's "Steve Jobs-ing it" and will return to the company.
"Our CEO search is the board's top priority," Camp said in the email. "It's time for a new chapter and the right leader for our next phase of growth. Despite rumors I'm sure you've seen in the news, Travis is not returning as CEO. we are committed to hiriring a new world class CEO to lead Uber."
Uber declined to comment.
"Uber must evolve and mature as we improve our culture and practices, to achieve our mission of bringing mobility to everyone," he continued. "We are dedicated to making Uber successful and keeping everyone informed of our progress."
Here's the full email:
I've spent a lot of time focused on Uber these past few months, talking to employees in product and engineering and helping wherever I can. Last week I joined a product leadership all hands, and several questions were about the CEO search and confusion around the process.
Our CEO search is the board's top priority. It's time for a new chapter, and the right leader for our next phase o growth. Despite rumors I'm sure you've seen in the news, Travis is not returning as CEO. We are committed to hiring a new world-class CEO to lead Uber.
Uber must evolve and mature as we improve our culture and practices, to achieve our mission of bringing mobility to everyone. We are dedicated to making Uber successful, and keeping everyone informed of our progress. Thank you for all your hard work.
