Andrew C. Taylor
Andy Taylor, who became involved in the automotive business nearly 50 years ago, currently serves as Executive Chairman of Enterprise Holdings – the privately held business founded in St. Louis in 1957 by his father, Jack Taylor. Building on the success of the company’s flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, the Taylor family acquired the Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands in 2007 in the largest acquisition ever in the car rental industry. The family renamed the company Enterprise Holdings in 2009, and today it operates a network of more than 8,200 neighborhood and airport locations worldwide. Enterprise Holdings is the most comprehensive service provider and only investment-grade company in the U.S. car rental industry.
Today, Enterprise Holdings and its affiliate Enterprise Fleet Management together offer a total transportation solution. Combined, these businesses – which include extensive car rental and car sharing services, commercial truck rental, corporate fleet management, and retail car sales – accounted for $15.4 billion in revenue and operated 1.3 million vehicles throughout the world in fiscal 2012. Ranked by Forbes as one of America’s Largest Private Companies, Enterprise Holdings’ revenues also place the company near the top of the travel industry, exceeding many airlines and most cruise lines, hotels, tour operators and online travel agencies.
