Avis Budget Group Inc. has been featured on the annual list of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs) by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

Now in its 17th year, the national recognition celebrates companies that have strategically implemented processes and driven results to support sustainable inclusion of WBEs in the corporate and government supply chains. Avis Budget Group is the only car rental company to earn a spot on the annual listing, and it has been featured on the selective list for 16 consecutive years.

"We remain committed to assuring that women-owned businesses have the maximum practicable opportunity to work with us, and are proud to be recognized once again for our continued efforts in identifying and integrating them into our supplier base," said Larry De Shon, CEO of Avis Budget Group.

Avis Budget Group was one of 59 U.S. corporations that met the standards to be recognized as one of America's Top Corporations for 2016. This year's list represents nearly 20 distinct industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive, consumer products, financial services, nonprofits, retail, technology, transportation & logistics, and travel & hospitality.

"Our Top Corporations know that stronger WBEs will drive new sources of revenue, deepen customer satisfaction, and generate a stronger economy," said Pamela Prince-Eason, president and chief executive officer of WBENC.

Avis Budget Group will be honored in front of an audience of business leaders at the WBENC Summit & Salute to WBEs taking place March 21-23 in New Orleans.
