Rand McNally has appointed Aaron Dannenbring as its new CEO, the transportation technology company announced June 30.

Dannenbring has two decades of experience in the general management and functional expertise spaces. That includes serving as chief strategy officer at Here Technologies. Rand McNally provides mapping, navigation and commercial transportation technology.

“We are excited to have an executive with Aaron’s strategic leadership abilities combined with his significant knowledge and experience in navigation and location services,” Rand McNally board chairman Joseph Roark said in a statement. “The board and I are confident that Aaron is the right person to lead Rand McNally as we build out the team and strengthen and grow customer products and services.”



Roark also works as an operating partner at Teleo Capital and was serving as interim CEO of Rand McNally. Teleo acquired Rand McNally in October 2020 and since that time has added key positions and invested in product research and development.

“I am truly humbled and honored to lead the next chapter in the incredible 165-year story of Rand McNally,” Dannenbring said. “As an active user of Rand McNally products for more than 40 years, I am delighted by the financial and operational commitment Teleo Capital has shown with its investment in the business and by the exceptional stewardship from board chairman Joe Roark and the rest of the Rand McNally team. We are primed with the resources, capabilities and team to transform and grow this iconic brand.”

Dannenbring held various leadership roles during his 15 years at Here Technologies. He then founded a location platform that provides inspiring travel ideas and booking solutions to the airline and hospitality sectors.
