AAA Appoints Doney As Its New CEO
For the first time in 21 years, AAA has named a new CEO. On July 1, Marshall L. Doney took over the spot at the company from Bob Darbelnet, who retired following a 42-year career with AAA.
Doney, who for the past two years has served as AAA’s president and chief operating officer, also has an impressive history with the company. In 1984, he joined the company as assistant manager of AAA Wisconsin. In 1991, he became the director of strategic planning and research of AAA’s national office before assuming the role of director of marketing and service quality for AAA New York. In 1996, he was elevated to the position of vice president, automotive services of the organization’s national office.
“I am honored and excited to have been selected by the AAA board of directors to continue AAA’s momentum and to lead this well-respected, member-centric organization during a time in our existence where automotive technology is changing faster than ever before,” Doney said.
Prior to becoming AAA’s CEO in 1994, Darbelnet had served 11 years as the CEO of The Canadian Automobile Club of Quebec.
Earlier this year, Don Main was elected as first Canadian to serve as chairman of AAA’s board.
