(AFP),

UBER hired Expedia boss Dara Khosrowshahi as its new Chief Executive late, in the hopes he can steer the ride-sharing service away from the string of controversies it has faced in the past year. Khosrowshahi will be at Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco on Wednesday for an “all-hands” gathering to meet workers at the embattled company.

“We are delighted to announce that Uber’s Board has voted unanimously to appoint Dara Khosrowshahi to be our new CEO,” Uber executives said in an email sent to employees late on Tuesday. Khosrowshahi is credited with turning Expedia into a global travel services behemoth, winning admiration from employees along the way.
