The only one to make the list from the travel industry, Enterprise Holdings President and COO Pam Nicholson has been named by Fortune magazine as one of America’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business.
Nicholson moved up three places from last year’s rankings to come in at No. 26.
“We see this honor as a fitting tribute to the results Pam has helped us achieve over her 30-year career with our business,” says Andrew Taylor, chairman and CEO of Enterprise Holdings, in an email statement. “Just three decades after she started as a management trainee — like so many of our operational leaders — Pam now stands as not only the highest ranking female at Enterprise Holdings, but in the entire $20 billion U.S. car rental industry.”
Krafts Food Chairman and CEO Irene Rosenfield took the top spot — up one compared to her ranking last year.
