ST. LOUIS - Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Andrew C. Taylor recently announced that Pamela M. Nicholson, has been named company president, making her only the fourth person to hold the office in Enterprise’s 51-year history.
She succeeds Donald L. Ross, who will continue as vice chairman of the company and its board of directors. Nicholson will also retain her role as Enterprise’s chief operating officer and as a member of the board of directors of Crawford Group, Enterprise’s parent company.
Enterprise is a privately held company owned by the Taylor Family of St. Louis. It is a multi-national transportation company with annual revenues in excess of $12 billion, and nearly 75,000 employees.
Nicholson will oversee all of Enterprise’s transportation businesses, including Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental, Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Fleet Management, Enterprise Car Sales, and Enterprise Commercial Truck Rental. Nicholson is only the second executive outside the Taylor family to serve as the company’s president, following founder Jack C. Taylor, his son, Andy, and Ross.
“Enterprise has a long tradition of developing our own managers and promoting from within,” said Andy Taylor. “Our family is fortunate to have someone with Pam Nicholson’s skills and experience to succeed Don Ross as the president of our company. Pam and Don have been members of our management team for 27 years and 43 years, respectively. Just as important, the two have worked together for more than 20 years, which will ensure a seamless transition.”
