On Aug. 27, 2017, Uber's board offered Dara Khosrowshahi a job as the company's new CEO after former CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down in June.
Khosrowshahi hasn't accepted it yet, but our readers have asked us for more details about Uber's top choice to run the company.
He was called a "Silicon Valley outsider" by Reuters, and there aren't a lot of details about the 48-year-old businessman.
