Khosrowshahi currently serves on the boards of Fanatics and The New York Times Company, and of the supervisory board of trivago, N.V., a majority-owned subsidiary of Expedia.
Uber Technologies’ CEO Travis Kalanick, 40, has stepped down from his role in late June this year. He continues to serve on the board of directors. Five of the major shareholders in the company – Benchmark Capital, Fidelity, First Round Capital, Lowercase Capital and Menlo Ventures, had demanded the CEO’s resignation.
Kalanick co-founded Uber in 2009 and led it to be the largest U.S. ride-hailing service and among the biggest globally. Prior to Uber, he co-founded Red Swoosh in 2001 that specialized in file-sharing technology and managed to sell it to Akamai Technologies for nearly $19 million in 2007. Before Red Swoosh, he co-founded Scour with his UCLA batch mates in 1998 which offered an Internet search engine and file-sharing services.
CEO Travis Kalanick had announced earlier in June itself that he would take an indefinite leave from the company, to reflect on the ongoing changes and to grieve the death of his mother, according to CNN Money. The company was decided to be run by a management committee as it tries to navigate the wave of scandals.
Uber's key roles still open - include Chief Diversity Officer, CFO, CMO, COO, General Counsel and SVP, Engineering.
