关于Uber新CEO的五件事

Lucinda Shen 2017年09月03日

Uber任命达拉·科斯罗沙西担任新CEO。

Uber寻找新领导的举动一直引发着人们的高度关注,其候选人包括慧与的梅格·惠特曼和惠普的杰夫·伊梅尔特。

尽管近几个月来,泄密在Uber的内部斗争中越来越司空见惯,但Uber的董事会决定聘任达拉·科斯罗沙西担任这家拼车应用的首席执行官,可能还是令人感到吃惊。

虽然科斯罗沙西很晚才出现在Uber首席执行官的候选名单上,但现年48岁的他却是一位知名的高管。他出生于德黑兰,大约12年前成为了旅行网站Expedia的首席执行官——而他当初是在媒体并购的热潮当中,从投资银行公司Allen & Co开始了自己的职业生涯。

尽管科斯罗沙西尚未正式接受任命,但Expedia的主席巴里·迪乐在给员工的通知中表示:“目前一切都不确定,不过通过与达拉的广泛讨论,我认为他有意向接受这个职位。”

以下是你应该对科斯罗沙西有所了解的地方:

在科斯罗沙西的领导下,Expedia的股价飙升

传统观点认为,整体股市的表现会比特定股票更好。但12年前决定投资Expedia而不是寻求广泛投资的人,将会得到更为丰厚的回报。自科斯罗沙西担任首席执行官以来,Expedia的股价增长了523%,而标普500指数整体增长约为98%。

2005年至2016年期间,Expedia的收入从21亿美元增至88亿美元,市值从83亿美元增至217亿美元。科斯罗沙西也因为对交易的敏感而饱受称赞。在他的带领下,Expedia旗下加入了Travelocity、Orbitz、HomeAway和Hotels.com,得以与爱彼迎和Bookings.com等公司相抗衡。

科斯罗沙西已经很富有

根据美国证券交易委员会的最新数据,达拉·科斯罗沙西在Expedia的股权价值约为6,790万美元,而他作为《纽约时报》的主管,在那里的股权也有三十多万美元的价值。这还是在他出售了一些Expedia的股权之后,当时那些股票卖出了大约1,170万美元的价格。

尽管大部分高管的多数财富都来源于股权,但我们很难确定科斯罗沙西的身家究竟多少。科斯罗沙西持有的任何房产或现金都可能提高他的资本净值。

根据证券交易委员会的文件,在Expedia担任首席执行官期间,科斯罗沙西大约挣得了3,350万美元现金。

科斯罗沙西致力于薪酬平等和女性领导

科斯罗沙西探讨过薪酬平等和女性领导的重要性。

他在2016年6月的一份声明中表示:“尽管与许多技术界的同行相比,我们做得不错,但是在让更多女性代表进入领导层上,我们仍然还有很长的路要走。我们需要吸引、招募、雇用和提拔世界各地各种类型的人才。我们相信,在各个维度包括性别上提高员工的多样性,我们能够实现最大的产出。”

根据Expedia今年5月发布的数据,全球范围内,该公司的女性员工比例占到了52%,领导层里有35%是女性。

作为对比,纸面上看Uber的情况完全不同。在一些员工受到性骚扰的指控后,Uber发布了一系列数据,其中显示:全球范围内,Uber的女性员工比例约为36%,领导层里有约22%是女性。

科斯罗沙西会直言不讳地批评特朗普总统

据说今年2月初,这位出生于伊朗的美国高管在收益电话会议的结尾表示:“希望我们能活着看到明年的末尾。”

近几周来看,这种情绪似乎并未减轻。在特朗普重申夏洛茨维尔的暴力事件双方均有过错后,科斯罗沙西发推称:“我一直等着我们的总统达到他办公室的期待的那一刻,但是他失败了,反复再三。”

科斯罗沙西比Uber的前老板更加冷静

《华盛顿邮报》称,尽管Uber的创始人特拉维斯·卡兰尼克被视作冲动的人,但科斯罗沙西却“行事稳健而低调”。(财富中文网)

Uber's search for a new leader has been highly publicized, with candidates including HPE's Meg Whitman and HP's Jeff Immelt.

And while leaks have become an increasingly common part of Uber's internal war in recent months, it may come as a surprise that Uber's board has decided to offer Dara Khosrowshahi the job of the ride-sharing app's CEO.

While a new player in the story of Uber's CEO search, Khosrowshahi, 48, is a well-known executive. Born in Tehran, he became CEO of the travel site Expedia about 12 years ago — though he got his start at the investment banking firm Allen & Co in the midst of a media merger mania.

Though Khosrowshahi has not yet officially accepted the gig, Expedia's Chairman Barry Diller wrote in a note to employees: "N othing has been yet finalized, but having extensively discussed this with Dara, I believe it is his intention to accept. "

Here's what you should know about Khosrowshahi:

Expedia's stock prices surged under Khosrowshahi

Conventional wisdom says that it's better on the overall stock market than a particular stock. But an investor who had decided to invest in Expedia rather than the wider market 12 years ago would have made a lucrative call. While the S&P 500 has risen about 98% since Khosrowshahi became CEO, Expedia's stock has risen about 523%.

Between 2005 and 2016, Expedia's revenue grew from $2.1 billion to $8.8 billion, while its market capitalization rose from $8.3 billion to $21.7 billion. Khosrowshahi has also been praised for his dealmaking acumen. Under his lead, Expedia added Travelocity, Orbitz, HomeAway and Hotels.com to its family in a bid to compete with companies such as Airbnb and Bookings.com.

Khosrowshahi is already rich

According to his most recent forms with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Dara Khosrowshahi's stake in Expedia is worth about $67.9 million stake, while his stake in The New York Times, where he is a director, is worth a third of a million. That came after he sold off some Expedia shares, netting about $11.7 million in the sale.

While most executives derive a large chunk of their wealth from their stock holdings, it's hard to say for certain exactly how much Khosrowshahi is worth. The value of any real estate or cash holdings Khosrowshahi may have could also bolster his net worth.

The CEO earned roughly $33.5 million in cash during his time as Expedia's chief, according to SEC filings.

He's committed to pay equality and female leadership

Khosrowshahi has discussed the importance of pay equality and female leadership.

“While we compare well with many of our technology peers, we have a long way to go in bringing more female representation into leadership roles,” he said in a statement in June 2016. “We need to attract, hire, engage and promote talent of all kinds all around the world, and we believe that by enriching the diversity of our work force across all dimensions, including gender, we achieve the most enriched outcomes.”

According to May statistics from Expedia, about 52% of positions across the world were held by women, while about 35% of leadership positions were held by women.

In contrast, the atmosphere at Uber appears quite different on paper. According to statistics Uber released after some employees were accused of sexual harassment, women held about 36% of positions at Uber globally, and about 22% of leadership roles.

He's an outspoken critic of President Trump

In early February, the Iranian-American executive reportedly ended an earnings call with the words: "Hopefully we will all be alive to see the end of next year."

That sentiment doesn't appear to have abated in recent weeks. After Trump reiterated that he believed the violence in Charlottesville was the responsibility of both sides, Khosrowshahi tweeted, "I keep waiting for the moment when our Prez will rise to the expectations of his office and he fails, repeatedly."

He's more chill than Uber's old boss

While Uber founder Travis Kalanick was seen as impulsive, Khosrowshahi has been dubbed "even-keeled and low-key," according to the Washington Post.
