Anyone who follows travel knows that Expedia has been making a lot of news lately. Now-former CEO Dara Khosrowshahi left to take the top job at Uber, and Expedia promptly promoted its CFO Mark Okerstrom to the chief executive position.
At Skift, we’ve been all over this story since the news broke late one recent Sunday night, so we put together a team to do a newsy conference call in early September about Dara’s legacy, his replacement, Expedia’s financial performance, and the opportunities and challenges ahead.
We recorded that call, which is featured in today’s episode of the Skift podcast. To see the slides mentioned in the conversation, go to skift.com/expediaslides.
Leading the call was Skift executive editor Dennis Schaal, who has been covering Expedia since 2000. He was joined by senior research analyst Jared Wein, research director Luke Bujarski, hospitality editor Deanna Ting, and senior writer Andrew Sheivachman.
