His years at Uber have been marked by both landmark deals that boosted the company's valuation and scandals that damaged the company's reputation. He was also present on a trip with Kalanick that resulted in a formal complaint by a female Uber employee.

One of Uber's top executives and CEO Travis Kalanick's closest aid Emil Michael, has chose to leave the company.

Post a traumatic accident in his family, where Uber CEO Travis Kalanick lost his mother and his father was hospitalized, he has been mulling over the need for some time-off from work. A leave of absence under those circumstances would seem reasonable, but it could also be viewed as a repudiation of Kalanick's management style and recent decisions, notes The New York Times.

And in February, in an exchange captured on camera, an Uber driver giving Kalanick a ride complained about the company's pricing model, to which Kalanick responded: "Some people don't like to take responsibility for their own s***".

Gulf mixed in early trade; Qatar National Bank slides
Turkey and Qatar have developed close ties over the years and reached agreement in 2014 to set up a Turkish military base there. Typically, cargo for Qatar stops at Dubai's massive deep-water Jebel Ali port, then gets put on smaller boats heading to Doha .

San Francisco-based Uber is valued at almost $70bn (£55bn) but is yet to make a profit.

Uber said the board had voted unanimously to adopt all the report's recommendations.

In his note Monday, Michael said he was not only proud of raising more money than any other tech company in history, but also building a diverse business team within Uber. Gabi Holzwarth, Kalanick's girlfriend at the time, told Bloomberg News that she was at the bar and that Michael had attempted to silence her about the episode.

Uber has fired more than 20 employees for infractions including sexual harassment and discrimination.

Va. governor: 'There are too many guns on the streets'
He says Mr McAuliffe was using the shooting to "advance his own political agenda". The governor says it's a serious issue he talks about every day.

Michael reportedly oversees strategy initiatives including mergers, acquisitions and fundraising.

"I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up", Kalanick later said in an email to employees about the exchange. J. William Gurley and David Bonderman, two independent board members, are said to already be anxious about Kalanick's management.

Kalanick and Michael tried to persuade her not to make the escort-bar visit public, she said.

Other women at Uber made similar claims about the same manager, Fowler wrote. According to anonymous sources, Alexander believed the claim of rape was part of a plan devised by rival ride-sharing firm Ola, and once he had obtained the medical records of the victim, he shared them with both Travis Kalanick and Uber's SVP of business, Emil Michael. One is the former head of global and consumer marketing for iTunes and Apple Music, Bozoma Saint John.
