Uber said to pick Expedia’s Dara Khosrowshahi as new CEO

Dara Khosrowshahi, the chief executive of Expedia Inc., has been chosen to lead Uber Technologies Inc., according to multiple reports Sunday night.

Recode first reported that Uber’s board of directors had picked Khosrowshahi. He is likely to accept the job offer, although he had not yet done so as of 11 p.m. Eastern Sunday. Uber had yet to confirm the news. “The Board has voted and will announce the decision to the employees first,” a spokesperson told Recode.

The decision caps a tumultuous search for a replacement for former CEO Travis Kalanick, who was ousted in June after a shareholder revolt following a series of scandals at the company.
