Uber board shake-up as Bill Gurley leaves

Uber board shake-up as Bill Gurley leaves

A sign marks a pick-up point for the Uber car service at LaGuardia Airport in New York on March 15, 2017. Travis Kalanick, the combative and embattled CEO of ride-hailing giant Uber, resigned June 20, 2017 under pressure from investors at a pivotal time for the company.

Gurley is the second board member to step down in the last week. TPG Capital's David Bonderman was replaced by his partner David Trujillo after he made a sexist remark during an all-hands meeting at Uber.

During his career, Gurley has worked with Grubhub, OpenTable and Nextdoor. His successor Cohler, employee No. 7, worked for Facebook for nearly eight years, ultimately as vice president of product. Prior to Facebook, he was vice president and general manager at LinkedIn, where he was a member of the founding team.
