Uber CEO Reportedly Looking for a Second-in-Command

The recent goings-on at Uber have CEO Travis Kalanick looking for someone to shoulder the burden.

Just a few days after Kalanick said he would seek out some help with leadership, tech news site The Information is reporting that Kalanick plans to appoint a number two executive to assist in making major decisions for the troubled ride-sharing service.

The report comes amid tumultuous times at Uber. Investors Mitch Kapor and Freada Kapor Klein recently called the company’s corporate culture “toxic” and “destructive.” And a former female engineer has raised allegations of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment at Uber.

Alphabet Inc.’s Waymo, a driverless car rival of Uber’s, has sued the company for stealing some of its technology (Uber denies the charges) and competitor Lyft announced plans to raise $500 million to expand its U.S. reach.
