Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi has been selected as the new CEO of Uber Technologies Inc., according to a report Sunday night by Recode. Earlier in the day, General Electric Chairman Jeff Immelt dropped out of the running. Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. CEO Meg Whitman spoke to the board Saturday, but maintained publicly that she was not interested in the job. Khosrowshahi was apparently the third, unnamed candidate, Recode said. Uber had yet to confirm the news, nor has Khosrowshahi officially accepted the job, Recode said. “The Board has voted and will announce the decision to the employees first,” a spokesperson said, according to Recode. Uber has been without a CEO since founder Travis Kalanick stepped down in June, following a shareholder revolt over a series of scandals. Khosrowshahi has led Expedia since 2005.
