At an all-hands meeting at Uber HQ in San Francisco this morning, former CEO Travis Kalanick was reportedly crying as new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi (pronounced cause-row-SHA-hee) was introduced to the company. Uber's board voted to offer Khosrowshahi the job on Sunday, and board member Arianna Huffington announced that he had accepted the job in a memo to employees on Tuesday, as Yahoo Finance reports. Huffington also said that the board vote on his hiring had been unanimous, meaning that Kalanick did not put up the fight that had been expected.

Yahoo reporter JP Mangalindan, who obtained some leaked audio of an Uber all-hands meeting in July when Kalanick resigned, still apparently has a leaking source inside the company from whom he was getting the blow-by-blow of this morning's meeting.


And, apparently commenting about how quickly the story of his hiring broke on Recode...

Recode reported Monday night that Khosrowshahi had issued a memo to employees at Expedia, where he has been CEO for over 12 years, saying that this had been "one of the toughest decisions of my life." And, he wrote, "I have to tell you I am scared. I’ve been here at Expedia for so long that I’ve forgotten what life is like outside this place."

Today's changing of the guard is a major "reset" for Uber, and as Recode puts it, "While some of the staff were the ones responsible for all the messes — ranging from regulatory missteps to dysfunctional management to toxic workplace behaviors to legal minefields — a great swath of Uber’s 16,000 staffers are blameless, and just trying to do their jobs."

Kalanick issued a statement saying, "Casting a vote for the new chief executive was a big moment for me, and I couldn’t be happier to pass the torch to such an inspiring leader.”
