"Our CEO search is the board's top priority", Camp said in an email this morning, which was obtained by Recode.
"Despite rumors I'm sure you've seen in the news, Travis is not returning as CEO", Camp wrote.
Months after a href="https://consumerist.com/2017/06/21/uber-founder-ceo-travis-kalanick-steps-down-makes-leave-of-absence-permanent/" target="_blank" Uber's board made CEO Travis Kalanick's leave of absence permanent, rumors have begun swirling that that he would soon be returning to his former position - buzz he may have started himself". "We are committed to hiring a new world-class CEO to lead Uber".
Uber's hunt for its next CEO continues and in typical company fashion, it's not without a bit of controversy.
Uber must evolve and mature as we improve our culture and practices, to achieve our mission of bringing mobility to everyone.
Travis Kalanick will not be Uber's CEO again, a key board member at the company said. The company is still in the process of turning its image around, after all.
Kalanick resigned this past June amid troubling times for the company as it faced - facing, still - allegations of workplace sexism, intellectual property theft, and accusations of illegally spying on competitors, among others. Thank you for all your hard work. The common denominator to Uber's problem, at least as several reports put it, was Kalanick's attitude and, more specifically, his approach to dealing with employees or handling his business.
Camp's statement comes as the company continues its search for a new chief executive to steer the ride-hailing firm.
