Rand Enterprises is an international corporation, headquartered in New York City. Founded by Wendell Rand, the company flourished under Rand and his partner Harold Meachum's leadership. In 2001, Meachum engineered an airplane accident which claimed the lives of Rand and his wife, and led to their son Danny Rand being declared legally dead; with Rand's death, the company subsequently fell under the sole leadership of Meachum.

In 2004, Meachum died of cancer and his son Ward Meachum officially took over, although Harold, who had been resurrected by the Hand, continued to lead the company from the shadows. After Danny Rand returned to New York in 2016, he was granted his rightful position as majority shareholder, although his decision to place morality over profits caused the board to terminate his employment, firing Ward and Joy Meachum as well.

Following the assassination of board member Lawrence Wilkins, slated to be the company's new leader, Rand Enterprises had the three reinstated in order to salvage their public image. After the death of Bakuto, Harold decided to reveal his existence in order to officially reclaim the title of CEO; however, Ward took over the position after he killed his father in order to save Rand's life.

The Rands Are Gone

The company's success drew attention of the Hand, an ancient and mysterious crime organization. Harold and Wendell were approached by Madame Gao, one of the Hand leaders, who sought to make a business deal but Rand disapproved. In 2001, Meachum began receiving treatment for terminal cancer. Gao promised to cure Meachum's cancer if he agrees to work with Hand. Unbeknownst to Rand, Meachum used Rand Enterprises' assets and built several laboratories in China for the purpose of expanding the Hand's drug manufacturing operations.

After uncovering Meachum's actions, Rand charted a plane to Anzhou and planned to take his wife Heather and their son Danny with him. Meachum decide to prevent Rand from bringing back proof by causing his plane to crash mid-flight. Before the Rands left the United States, Meachum injected the pilots with a poison he previously obtained from Madame Gao. En route to Anzhou, both pilots succumbed to the poison and lost control of the plane. The plane crashed into the Himalayan mountain range, instantly killing Heather and Wendell. Danny was lost and declared legally dead.

Meachum became CEO of Rand Enterprises and continued his cooperation with Gao. In 2004, Meachum died of cancer. The company subsequently fell under the leadership of his son Ward Meachum and his sister Joy became Chief Counsel. Later, Meachum rose from the dead as Gao had promised and the Hand began forcing him to live in hiding, controlling Rand Enterprises for the Hand's benefit through his son Ward who was the only one to know of his survival.
