Kalanick's decision "was a surprise to everyone", a second Uber spokesman said.

But the investor came out late Tuesday to talk up Kalanick's impact on the world with Uber, saying that "many pages in the history books" will be devoted to the entrepreneur.

- February 2: Uber CEO Travis Kalanick quits President Trump's council of business leaders amid mounting pressure from employees and customers over the immigration order.

The Times reported that in his own statement, Kalanick said: "I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this hard moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight".

Tories confident of sensible deal with Northern Irish DUP - minister
A DUP source warned that talks with Tories "haven't proceeded in a way that the DUP would have expected" and a deal was "certainly not imminent".

Benchmark was an early investor in Uber. But "the significance of Uber has declined because the company has not managed to present itself in a stable and socially responsible way", Dudenhoeffer said. The move came at the request of the board of directors, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The Silicon Valley startup has been trying to improve its workplace culture after being roiled with allegations of sexual bias and harassment at the company.

The company has already lost Kalanick's right-hand man, Senior Vice President of Business Emil Michael, following a number of gaffes including his suggestion that the company target a journalist who had been investigating the company.

While building the world's biggest ride-hailing service, Uber developed a reputation for ruthless tactics that have occasionally outraged government regulators, drivers, riders and its employees. Though the driver was convicted in 2015, Kalanick and other executives became convinced the crime was a set up by a local rival, former employees said.

The firm has been searching for a chief operating officer, but now can seek out Fortune 500 chief executives to take over the top spot, he said.

Following the letter's delivery, Kalanick consulted with a board member on the matter. But Huffington, a founder of Huffington Post, suggested time might be running out.

The investors made their demand for Mr. Kalanick to resign in a letter delivered to the chief executive.
