Take it from Area Manager Gerardo Gomez, one of nearly 11,000 individuals who earned promotions or took on new challenges at Enterprise Holdings last year:
While the average U.S. worker moves into a different job every 4.4 years, Gerardo has worked for Enterprise Holdings since 1998. The reason: “I chose Enterprise because of the opportunities — almost like changing careers without changing companies,” Gerardo says. “I wanted a company that would allow me to showcase my talent and let me grow.”

Todd Heavner, Director of Community Relations in Washington, D.C., makes a point of hand-delivering every check he receives from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation for charitable organizations on behalf of his operating group. “When I deliver these checks, something good always seems to happen,” he says.
It was certainly the case on a recent Monday morning.
Todd had a check to hand off to a representative of HEROES Inc., an organization that aids families of local police officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty. His contact, a Secret Service agent, asked Todd to meet him at the Naval Observatory, whose grounds include the home of the vice president of the United States. The agent let Todd know he might have a chance to snap a picture of Vice President Joe Biden walking to the helicopter pad on the property to depart for a trip.

The wooden eagle — with a 77-inch wingspan — now hangs atop the balcony overlooking the main lobby of Enterprise Holdings’ world headquarters.

If there’s one thing Paul Smith finds appealing, it’s opportunity. Even so, he had a hard time believing everything he heard about the career paths that Enterprise offered when he first encountered the company at a university job fair in 1995.
“I actually turned Enterprise down when they offered me a position the first time,” recalls Paul, who in 2012 became Vice President and General Manager of the South England Group — the first English employee to reach the general manager level at Enterprise. “It was a very new company here, and I’d never heard of them. So I took a job with another business instead.”

Hello! At Enterprise, we have eight Founding Values that we follow. My favorite value is “Our company is a fun and friendly place, where teamwork rules.”. The best part of my job is, knowing that the company is one big team that works together under the same values. I chose the word ‘teamwork’ to describe my experience at Enterprise, because I feel that without my team here, coming to work would be a completely different experience.

Assistant Manager Nikki Wilcox of the Enterprise branch at the Boise Airport in Idaho provided such exceptional customer service that she inspired a military customer — Sgt. 1st Class K. Wyman — to present her with a Peace Vanguard coin, an award his division of the military bestows upon individuals who go above and beyond. Only 25 to 30 civilians receive the award each year.
