Rand McNally Appointed First Public Director on ASSE Board

McNallyThe ASSE Board of Directors welcomes Rand McNally as its first public director. McNally will apply his vast experience, which includes more than 40 years of international business experience, senior leadership and independent board responsibility, to this newly created volunteer position.

As part of a governance restructuring approved in 2014, the ASSE Board now includes a public director to gain an outside perspective on strategic issues, insight on elevating the profession, and positioning safety professionals as valued business partners in setting organizational policy and strategy.

According to ASSE Board President-Elect Tom Cecich, after a lengthy search it became clear that McNally had the business acumen the board was looking for. “Rand’s background and experience will help us achieve our goals,” says Cecich. “He will bring a broad management perspective that the ASSE Board has never had before.”

“I jumped at the opportunity to join the ASSE Board in this capacity,” says McNally, principal of management consulting firm McNally & Associates Ltd., in Mequon, WI. “These board members are committed to raising the profile of the safety profession and occupational safety and health professionals at the senior management level. I can help them navigate that path by sharing how business leaders think, prioritize and make decisions, and how safety fits into that equation.”
