In a rare conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Huffington said that outside speculation of removing Kalanick from the CEO job is purely hypothetical and there haven't been any discussions at the company about it. Earlier this month, Uber was searching for a chief operating officer to help run the firm with Travis Kalanick, the Chief Executive of Uber, and that when Jeff's president role was put into question.
Arianna Huffington, an Uber board member, said a probe into the company's culture and harassment claims is likely to be completed by the end of next month.
Prior to joining Uber, Jeff was working with Target Corp as Chief Marketing officer responsible for modernizing their brand. All three issued full-throated admissions that the company has big problems that are being rooted out in various areas, including Kalanick's leadership, the way the company operates internally and how the company treats its drivers.
Uber Technologies Inc. plans to publish a diversity report and the results of an investigation into sexual harassment allegations over the coming weeks, reaffirming its commitment to fix its corporate culture.

Huffington clearly thinks the publication took her out of context. She said there's an "absolute commitment that the findings will be made public and that they will inform all the actions".
"After we announced our intention to hire a COO, Jeff came to the tough decision that he doesn't see his future at Uber."
"We also need to give drivers a say in fare adjustments instead of relying on what a rider tells us". In an email to staff, CEO Travis Kalanick said Jones made the decision to leave following the announcement that Uber meant to hire a chief operations officer (COO).
Holt, the operational expert on the call, described steps the company is taking to be more responsive and fair to drivers - given that many of those relationships are "frayed" - such as communicating with that vast network in a "more human" manner.
