Enterprise Names First CEO Outside Taylor Family
ST. LOUIS (AP) - For the first time in its 56-year history, someone outside the Taylor family is leading Enterprise Holdings.
The St. Louis-based vehicle rental company said Tuesday that Pamela M. Nicholson, a 32-year veteran of Enterprise Holdings, has been named chief executive officer. She was previously president and chief operating officer. She will continue to serve as president.
Andrew C. Taylor, who had been CEO since 1991, will remain as executive chairman.
Enterprise Holdings operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental.
Enterprise has had just two CEOs, founder Jack Taylor and his son, Andrew. Nicholson says following in their footsteps is a "terrific honor."
