An electrical engineer from Brown University, Khosrowshahi has credited himself an impressive career. Prior to owning Expedia, his career involves being the CFO at IAC, working with Allen & Co and even being on the Board of The New York Times Company.

Uber has revolutionised the conveyance sector by introducing an app that  allows its users to call a GPS installed cab, anytime, anywhere. However the company has been drowning in scandals including that of its employees regularly spying on Beyonce. Several other turbulent controversies have immensely affected the networth of this US$6.3 billion dollar company. Dethroning Travis Kalanick, the former CEO of Uber, the Irani immigrant is expected to raise the company’s credibility.
