Expedia's Dara Khosrowshahi set to become Uber's new CEO

Uber’s board has voted in favour of making Dara Khosrowshahi its new CEO

Uber’s board has voted in favour of making Dara Khosrowshahi, the current chief executive of travel company Expedia, its new chief executive.

While Khosrowshahi has yet to formally accept the offer, an Uber spokesman confirmed the news with TechCrunch, saying: “The Board has voted and will announce the decision to the employees first.”

With Meg Whitman, CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, turning down the job publicly, it leaves Khosrowshahi, who has been running Expedia for more than a decade, as the clear favourite ahead of General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt.
