How Our Journey Began

The Story of DRIVEN

In 2007, Brendan Kelly, now one of DRIVEN’s board members, became increasingly frustrated with all the professional car services available at the time. Kelly owns several other companies headquartered in Annapolis and repeatedly came up empty for a reliable transportation solution for his clients. His next phone call was to his college roommate, Brad Gardner (now Director of Member Development), and the two set off with one car, a 2007 Lexus LS 460L, to create the only membership-based ground transportation provider in the industry. On October 23rd, 2007, DRIVEN completed its first ride, driving a high-caliber candidate from BWI airport to a job interview.

Market Expansion

By 2013, DRIVEN expanded out of the Baltimore-Washington region, offering national concierge services to its growing family of members. Today we do business worldwide and serve our clients where ever they need us.

New Leadership & Services

In 2017, DRIVEN hired President Eddie McKinnon to lead the organization through a reinvention of services with the addition of private aviation, yacht charters and worldwide concierge service.

A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, McKinnon is a creative leader and skilled operator with impressive military leadership experience. He served as a US Naval Officer and Aviator, as well as the Operations Department Head and Mission Commander for 10 years. McKinnon is no stranger to the transportation service industry having spent three years prior with Richardson Aviation as a Captain, as well as Director of Pilot Training and Safety. Today, McKinnon is an active member on the State of Maryland Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Board and the Warrior Events Board, a non-profit that enriches the lives of those wounded while serving our country as well as the lives of their family members through meaningful events.

Member Focused

I first sat in the back of a DRIVEN vehicle as a client and personally experienced the benefits of best-in-class service. As DRIVEN’s President, I believe in this product and our team is on a mission to deliver the best customer experience in the transportation industry.
