The company is headed by Uber Gift Khosroshahi
Gift Khosroshahi (Dara Khosrowshahi), who for the past 12 years served as Executive Director of travel company Expedia, has become the new leader of Uber.
We will remind, in the beginning of the summer under pressure from investors and Board of Directors former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick (Travis Kalanick) left his post. One of the potential candidates as the new leader of the company was Executive Director of General Electric Jeff Immelt (Jeff Immelt). The third candidate Uber was CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Meg Whitman (Meg Whitman).
In the end, however, the Board of Directors expressed a preference for Gift Khosroshahi, adding in a published statement, that they were lucky to get such an experienced and talented head.
