McKenna will be tasked with rebuilding the company's 32-year old business as it recovers from the pandemic, along with expanding to new destinations. 

McKenna most recently served as the CEO of tour company Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit. He is also the board chair of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada. 

"David has been a business partner of Rocky Mountaineer for more than 15 years; he knows our product and has worked with many of our team members," said Peter Armstrong, founder of Rocky Mountaineer. "We look forward to his leadership in navigating the continuing challenges while also preparing the business for future growth."

Armstrong had been Rocky Mountaineer's interim CEO since April 2021, when Steve Sammut left the company.
