New CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, in an interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times.
I should say. Here’s an astute CEO: Employees were quitting in droves, the board of directors suffered from infighting, there were five pending federal investigations(and counting)and #DeleteUber resulted in 500,000 customers deleting their accounts. Let’s not forget strained regulatory relationships, banishments from major cities, sexual harassment allegations, and one heck of a case study of what happens when pajama boys start companies. They quite nearly finish them off. All good wishes to Mr. Khosrowshahi. He is off to a good start with his candor. You can’t fix a problem (or many) unless you first acknowledge the problem(s).
