Business Insider : Emil Michael leaves Uber

As it stated in

Uber’s longtime head of business, Emil Michael, has left the company, according to an Uber representative.
As one of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick’s closest confidants, Michael oversaw Uber’s broader business strategy, including partnerships and fundraising.
Michael played a pivotal but often controversial role in building Uber into the $69 billion ride-hailing giant it is today.
In his letter, Michael said David Richter, Uber’s current VP of strategic initiatives, would be taking over the position of SVP of business.
Michael also saw the medical reports of a rape victim that had been obtained by another Uber executive, according to a Recode report Friday.

It was unclear if Michael was fired or chose to resign.
Uber also announced a new member of its board of directors on Monday, bringing on Wan Lin Martello.
