Khosrowshahi is a smart choice for Uber. He’s dealt with monetizing travel-related services amidst intense competition, earning plaudits from his employees and investors. At Uber, Khosrowshahi will likely refocus around consumer-services and partnering to bring Uber into the fulfillment of mobility needs in complex transactions. For example, tying Uber into travel planning and B2C services (delivery), areas he mastered at Expedia. After a lot of bad days, this is a good one for Uber.
