"Our robust growth is a tribute to the strong international reputation of our brands. We have a very clear vision of how Enterprise, National and Alamo customers should be treated.”
Pamela Nicholson, Chief Executive Officer – Enterprise Holdings, January 2018
Steady management at the top, combined with financial stability and a consistent ability to exceed our customers' expectations, has fueled more than six decades of profitable growth and defined Enterprise Holdings Inc.’s global leadership role in the car rental and travel industries.
We manage our business with our Compliance and Ethics and Founding Values programs in mind – as demonstrated by our continuous work to balance the interests of as many key stakeholders as possible, including customers, employees and the parts of the world we touch with our global operations.
That leadership begins with our owners, the Taylor family of St. Louis. Since our founding in 1957, Enterprise has had only three CEOs – our founder Jack; his son, Andrew C. Taylor; and 36-year Enterprise veteran, Pamela Nicholson. Pam has been named one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business for the past eleven years.
The third generation of the family also is involved in managing Enterprise and is an important part of our lasting success.

Enterprise Holdings’ global network operates in 100 countries and territories, including North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean and Europe, as well as parts of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. As the world’s largest car rental provider, Enterprise Holdings operates – through its independent regional subsidiaries and franchise partners – more than 10,000 fully staffed neighborhood and airport locations. This network also offers strategic and sustainable mobility options, as hourly, daily and weekly car rentals continue to expand as cost-effective and consumer-friendly modes of transportation.
In addition, we believe local and global supply chain management is critical to achieving our vision of excellent customer service. As a result, Enterprise Holdings and its subsidiaries rely on a broad network of suppliers and business partners to help us keep our business strong and successful for the long term.
Enterprise Holdings’ heritage is unique: We pioneered and developed significant market demand for convenient, affordable car rentals away from the airport – right in the neighborhoods where customers live and work. That market segment then evolved into an insurance replacement business for consumers whose vehicles were in need of repair and, under the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, grew into a robust neighborhood business that currently rivals the airport market.
The addition of the Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands in 2007, as part of one of the largest acquisitions in car rental industry history, enabled us to begin offering a diverse three-brand portfolio at the airport to serve leisure and business travelers:
