Jodie Daubert will be leading AAA Central Penn, after being appointed its new president and CEO.

Daubert is the first woman to take the role since the local automotive club was founded in 1907, according to the club.

The local club operates 11 offices in nine counties. It has 290 employees. Daubert officially takes over on Feb. 14, succeeding David Meckley, who served as interim CEO. 

"I am honored to have been selected by the Board of Directors to continue AAA Central Penn’s momentum," Daubert said in a statement. "And I’m excited to lead this well-respected, member-centric organization."

Daubert joins AAA Central Penn after recently serving as senior vice president of merchandising for Ahold USA Inc. in Cumberland County, the parent company of Giant Food Stores.

She started working at Ahold USA in high school, ascending the ranks during a 30-year tenure with the supermarket company. She is a graduate of Shippensburg University.

I want to report a poor customer service issue to you. I called for a tow & when the tow driver came he tried to shift the manual stick into reverse. I told him how to do it correctly but he didn't listen. He kept trying to force the stick & the linkage snapped. Mr. David Gardner now says it broke due to wear & tear. I have had this car since 2010 & never had a problem. It was the smoothest stick I ever drove. The car is irreparable due to no parts available nationwide. I want AAA to accept responsibility for the damage they caused.
