Uber's new CEO pick, Dara Khosrowshahi, is not a household name, unlike other candidates who were on the shortlist, including Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman.
But Khosrowshahi has C-suite chops: He's been CEO of travel website Expedia since 2005, leading the company though brand expansions including Expedia.com, Hotels.com and Hotwire.
Now, Uber reportedly wants him to right the ride-sharing ship, replacing controversial co-founder and CEO Travis Kalanick who left the company in June. In the top spot, Khosrowshahi will have a litany of issues to deal with, including a broken workplace culture, a legal battle with Google parent company Alphabet — and more.
What's clear is the Iranian American business leader will have a challenge ahead of him. What's less well known to most is what Khosrowshahi is like as person and as a leader.
A dig back through his Twitter posts shines some light.
