Travis Kalanick, the co-founder and former chief government officer of Uber Applied sciences Inc., named two new administrators with out consulting the corporate’s new chief or different current board members, ratcheting up a Machiavellian battle for management of the world’s most respected startup.
Kalanick stated in an announcement late Friday that he had appointed Ursula Burns, Xerox Corp.’s former CEO, and John Thain, the ex-Merrill Lynch chief, to the startup’s board. Uber challenged the appointments, calling them “a whole shock.”
The previous CEO is defending himself in opposition to a lawsuit introduced by Uber’s largest shareholder, Benchmark, over his authority to fill the 2 board seats.
