Dara Khosrowshahi, head of Expedia, appointed Uber's new CEO

Uber's board of directors has appointed a new CEO: Dara Khosrowshahi, current CEO of Expedia. He will take over from the founder Travis Kalanick, who resigned end of June following the multiple scandals of the platform.

According to the New York Times, Dara Khosrowshahi, president and CEO of the online travel booking site Expedia, takes the helm of Uber after the resignation last June of its founder Travis Kalanick, under pressure from investors. Jeff Immelt, Chairman of General Electric and Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard Enterprise's CEO, were approached to succeed him, but withdrew from the race.

Dara Khosrowshahi has been Expedia's CEO since 2005, after starting his career in finance, and has significantly contributed to the development of the American giant, which has experienced strong growth in its activity in recent years thanks to its many acquisitions. He is also a member of the Executive Committee of The New York Times Company since 2015.

As Uber's new CEO, he will be in charge of improving the platform's image, which has faced several accusations in recent months (sexist and discriminatory climate, theft of technologies...) and restore the corporate culture in order to achieve profitability.
