Management Trainee Regan M. (pictured second from right) was the team leader of a student group from the University of Leicester who triumphed over 150 other teams in the 2014 U.K. final of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Global Business Challenge (GBC). This win secured their spot in the global final in Mumbai, India in August where they finished seventh out of 24 teams from all over the world.
My name is Alessandra D. and I have been a Management Trainee with Enterprise for six months. It has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! When joining the team I was repeatedly told two very important things: I will work hard and my efforts would not go unnoticed. Enterprise is constantly rewarding me through recognition, opportunities, events and prizes. I am consistently being provided the support to learn new things and grow as an individual and a professional. Working for a company that prides themselves in exceptional training and development and rewards displays the true gratitude and appreciation they have for their employees. I am dedicated to walking into work and putting in 100% of my efforts everyday because I know my hard work is truly valued. I have experienced firsthand one of Enterprise’s founding values… “We work hard and reward hard work!” As I advance in my own career, I am excited to show others how rewarding a career with Enterprise can be!
One word. It’s that simple. GO.
When most Enterprise Holdings employees consider going “beyond the reservation,” it likely means stepping up to ensure complete satisfaction with a rental. For Management Trainee Emily E., the phrase has an entirely different dimension.
As a member of the Navajo tribe, Emily has literally gone beyond the reservation lands of her native Navajo Nation to explore cultures and build friendships half a world away. Before joining Enterprise, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Chengdu — a city of 14 million in the Sichuan province of China.
Stephen’s dedication was especially noticed one rainy evening at closing time, when he was called to help a stranded motorist. Unbeknownst to Stephen, the customer needing help was Systems Engineer Lesley I. — an Enterprise Holdings employee from St. Louis in the middle of a four-hour drive to Branson, Missouri, when her truck started making unfavorable noises. With three kids in tow, she exited the highway only to find no gas stations, restaurants or stores anywhere in sight.
My name is Trenton N. and my one word to describe Enterprise is Success. I am a Management Assistant in Tampa, FL. and I am a HUGE football fan. I have a lot of respect for the great college and professional football coaches and players that perform on an elite level and this is the same approach I bring to my role at Enterprise. When it comes to success, I am proud of what I have experienced and won’t settle for anything less than getting to the next level. After six months of working at Enterprise I have the possibility of becoming an Assistant Manager and I am very excited for this opportunity. I like to think I am a very valuable asset to my team by helping them achieve many goals. I try to rise quickly to any challenge and I strive to be a model employee.
“I wanted to go back to school and get an MBA, and I thought working for Enterprise for a year or two would help me pad my resume with real-world experience,” Anwar admits.
But with his natural leadership skills — he ran a deli while still in high school and served as the president of his fraternity in college — and competitive nature, Anwar saw immediate success andcareer potential with Enterprise.

Here, Ritchie shares his secrets to providing excellent customer service.
My name is Billy P., and I am a Branch Manager in Indianapolis. In my four years, I have learned that Enterprise has been built and will continue to be successful through a foundation of strong leadership. Without the leadership of our founders, Enterprise would not be the enormously successful, family owned company that it is today. I started out as an MT, and my leadership is what has helped me grow my career into becoming a Branch Manager. I am proud to be a part of the Enterprise family because of the emphasis placed on training employees from day one. Leadership is not based on the hierarchy of your position, but is based on how well you; encourage, motivate, and inspire others to live the founding values of Enterprise.
As a senior in high school Assistant Branch Manager Mike P. (on right) earned a full scholarship to play football at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Former Texas Longhorns Head Coach, Mack B., oversaw the program when Mike first joined the team, and he led the Tar Heels to three bowl games with Mike on the roster.
After graduation in 1999, Mike got drafted in the seventh round by the Detroit Lions. He played for that team and then the San Diego Chargers before an injury prevented Mike from pursuing his professional football career any further.
