Benchmark's lawsuit against ousted Uber CEO Kalanick to go to arbitration

Benchmark's lawsuit against ousted Uber CEO Kalanick to go to arbitration

Today, at an all-hands meeting welcoming Uber's new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, Kalanick sounded both excited to welcome Khosrowshahi, who he characterized as "an inspiring leader", as well as highly emotional.

But his brash personality and freewheeling management style, which some argue set a tone inside the company, made him a liability as well as an asset to the global ridesharing giant, and in June he stepped down as chief executive.

Last week, Uber said its sales reached $1.75 billion in the second quarter, up 17 per cent from the previous quarter. Uber has spent the better part of this year in crisis mode, weathering allegations of a toxic culture that allowed discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying. And at Microsoft Corp., CEO Satya Nadella - who like many Indian-born Americans, went there to study and stayed on to build a career - is reshaping the company into a provider of solutions in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. The recording does not mention an IPO. "We're in a battle here". Having worked side by side with Dara for the past (nearly) 11 years, I know better than most the size of his shoes - big! "I am not going to bullshit you", he said.

Expedia's chief financial officer will be promoted to CEO, the company said on Wednesday. He said he met Arianna Huffington, for example, at her "beautiful" apartment in New York City and had healthy Greek food with her.

United Nations calls for humanitarian cease-fire in Raqqa, Syria
There has been a recent increase in the number of coalition air strikes on Raqqa . Islamic State is on the back foot in both Syria and Iraq.

"We view Expedia's operations in 2017 as back to basics with the company re-focused on improving search, increasing conversion rates, and building out supply - all core tenets of the OTA (online travel agency) ecosystem", Anmuth said. And it's just this incredible vision. So in the near term...you will probably see me asking a lot of questions, listening and no doubt making a few mistakes here and there (apologies in advance J).

Khosrowshahi also revealed how Kalanick insisted that all of their phone calls were carried out over FaceTime.

Mr Khosrowshahi is known as an experienced top executive, willing to speak his mind and to advocate for women getting equal pay and leadership opportunities. "I think he thinks that [Recode journalist] Kara Swisher has hacked into the cell network".
