Enterprise Holdings Inc. has announced the promotion of Christine Taylor to executive vice president and chief operating officer. Since 2013, Taylor has served as senior vice president of North American Operations for Enterprise Holdings.
“Chrissy combines a solid grounding in our traditions and values with the fresh, creative approach required to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” said her father, Andrew C. Taylor, executive chairman for Enterprise Holdings Inc. “One of the keys to Enterprise’s success over the years has been our family’s steady consistent stewardship.”
In her new role, Taylor will oversee the company’s operations and continue to serve as a member of the corporate board of Enterprise Holdings. She will report to Pamela Nicholson, the company’s president and CEO.
“Chrissy has brought a winning combination of intelligence, energy and a tremendous work ethic to every challenge she has taken on in her 15-year car rental career,” said Nicholson. “There’s no doubt Chrissy will continue to do great things for our company and our customers.”
Nicholson added that Enterprise Holdings’ North American Operations recently has experienced growth in both neighborhood and airport locations, as well as in truck and motorcycle rentals.
“Chrissy also helped grow luxury car rental to more than 30 locations and strengthen the company’s portfolio of urban mobility alternatives, including carsharing and vanpooling,” said Nicholson. “And she launched a program extending business hours that has driven a strong increase in the competitive local car rental market.”
Christine Taylor’s grandfather, Jack Taylor, founded the company in 1957 with only seven vehicles. He named it after the World War II aircraft carrier he served on — the USS Enterprise, according to the company.
