Uber's selection of Khosrowshahi is not a done deal. He remains on Uber's board.
And, in keeping with the cup full of insane modus operandi, about 30 minutes ago, in a statement, an Uber board spokesperson said: "The Board has voted and will announce the decision to the employees first". (In one infamous episode that was caught on video earlier this year, Kalanick unloaded onto an Uber driver who criticised the company's wages). Mr Khosrowshahi led an acquisition binge in online travel, expanding IAC's Expedia with takeovers of Orbitz and HomeAway.

The company also lacks many key executives, including a chief financial officer and a chief operating officer. Khosrowshahi was one of three candidates the company was considering, the newspaper reported, citing anonymous sources.
