Travis Kalanick, the co-founder and former chief executive officer of Uber Technologies Inc., said he has appointed Ursula Burns, Xerox Corp.’s former CEO, and John Thain, the ex-Merrill Lynch chief, to the startup’s board. Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber’s new CEO, challenged the appointments, calling them “a complete surprise.” Kalanick is defending himself against a lawsuit brought by Uber’s largest shareholder, Benchmark Capital, over his authority to appoint the two directors. Kalanick says he controls three of the company’s 11 board seats. Benchmark is suing Kalanick for fraud and has asked him to relinquish control of those positions. The suit is in arbitration.
