Uber's board of directors has reached out to Bank of America (BAC) - Get Report  Vice Chairman Anne Finucane regarding the ride-hailing company's empty CEO position, Axios reported.

Uber has been without a CEO since Travis Kalanick resigned in June amid a spattering of scandals. Finucane is said to be intrigued by the position, but has not yet entered any official discussions with the San Francisco-based company.

Finucane has spent 22 years with Bank of America and, in addition to serving as vice chair, leads the bank's ESG, public policy, customer analytics and global marketing functions.

Finucane might do some much-needed good for Uber, as she has experience in crisis management leading Bank of America out of the financial crisis. Uber is also reportedly looking to hire a female CEO to rehab a brand wounded by sexual harassment scandals.
