    Still makes no sense to me how a CEO can be hired from the outside and never washed a car or learn the company rental culture or run a rental branch. Enterprise would never promote anyone - much less a CEO - who didn't prove themselves and know the business from the inside. I guess that's why Enterprise is superior and has more rubber-on-road than any other Car Rental company.
