Uber is said to tap Expedia CEO to lead the company – Los Angeles Times

Uber has chosen Dara Khosrowshahi, the chief executive of travel booking website Expedia, to be its new chief executive, according to a source unauthorized to comment publicly.

Khosrowshahi’s reported appointment ends Uber’s hunt to replace the company’s controversial co-founder and former chief executive, Travis Kalanick, who was pressured to resign in June.

Representatives for Uber, its board of directors and Expedia did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The search was a bumpy ride for the ride-hailing firm, with rumors of Kalanick angling for a return to the leadership role and a lawsuit from Uber investor Benchmark aiming to bar him from interfering with the hiring of a new CEO.
