Dara Khosrowshahi, the new Uber chief

"What got us here is not what's going to get us to the next level", according to the Uber Comms Twitter account.

On his ideas to turnaround Uber's culture, he said, "This company has to change".

For Uber, Khosrowshahi's start can't come soon enough.

Khosrowshahi will have to tend to a number of wounds the San Francisco-based company sustained under the tenure of its former CEO, co-founder Travis Kalanick.

Kalanick was in attendance at the meeting.

"I keep waiting for the moment when our Prez will rise to the expectations of his office and he fails, repeatedly", Khosrowshahi said in the tweet, which included a link to a story about the Trump controversy.

Dara Khosrowshahi, the chief executive hired to restore confidence in the troubled taxi hailing company Uber, could not be more different to the man he replaces.

The loss-making firm's troubles in the Philippines are just one of many problems it faces globally.

The first day of hearings in the lawsuit was due to begin today.

The Uber board has been in turmoil, with one major investor in the company, Benchmark Capital, suing Kalanick and accusing him of sabotaging the search for his replacement. The board formally introduced the new CEO in an email to the company on Tuesday.

Trump says Mexico will pay for the wall ''one way or another''
The Foreign Ministry's statement left out the fact that the USA has relied heavily on Mexican aid in the recent past. Trump said at a rally last week in Phoenix that he would "end up probably terminating" NAFTA "at some point".

DE judge Sam Glasscock on Wednesday brought that dispute closer to a resolution when he stayed the lawsuit and moved it to arbitration, which moves the legal fight out of the public eye. "Benchmark's false allegations are wholly without merit and have unnecessarily harmed Uber and its shareholders".

Uber's newly appointed chief executive has confessed that he is "scared" about taking the job as he faces the hard task of repairing the taxi-hailing app's public image following a string of scandals. Several large Uber investors recently marked down their investments.

The company is losing hundreds of millions a quarter. Its rivals overseas raised billions and banded together. Khosrowshahi inherits a laundry load of challenges, including dealing with an ongoing lawsuit with Waymo as well as addressing sexual harassment issues internally following a major investigation.

Khosrowshahi must also rebuild Uber's C-Suite. He was the senior vice president of corporate development for five years before taking over the CFO role in 2011. But he may be close to filling one of those.

Khosrowshahi on Tuesday called the job "an opportunity of a lifetime" and signaled that he meant to become Uber's next CEO.
