Jeff Immelt says not pursuing Uber CEO job

Aug 27 (Reuters) - Jeff Immelt, chairman of General Electric Co, said on Sunday he was no longer in the running for a leadership position at Uber Technologies Inc as the board of the beleaguered ride services company searches for a new chief executive.

"I have decided not to pursue a leadership position at Uber," Immelt said on his Twitter account, adding that he had "immense respect for the company & founders." (Writing by Mary Milliken; Editing by Andrew Hay)
