Brad Kjar, director of operations for U-Save Car & Truck Rental, has been named as the newest member of the American Car Rental Association’s (ACRA) Board of Directors.

U-Save, together with its subsidiary ARRC, has over 900 locations throughout the U.S. and is one of North America’s largest franchise car rental companies. It also has international locations in Mexico, Greece, the Middle East, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Over 20 years ago, Kjar found the car rental industry by accident when renting a car from Enterprise. Upon returning the rental, he asked the branch manager if they were hiring; two weeks later, he was hired and learning the rental car industry.


After Enterprise, Kjar continued his career as the director of local market operations at Dollar Thrifty and helped increase its off-airport market with corporate locations operated by independent operators. In 2009, he followed one of his mentors to Avis Budget, where he led the local Avis operators and Budget Truck dealers in Metro Atlanta.

Kjar resides in Atlanta with his wife and two children.
