Enterprising People: Airport Facilities Director Randy K.

randykIs it a good thing to be ranked No. 40? You better believe it is — especially if it means you’re the 40th fastest person in the world when graded among your peers at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, which took place this summer in Austria.

Airport Facilities Director Randy K. has no need to wear a jet pack. He can swim 1.2 miles, cycle 56 miles and run 13.1 miles all together faster than most people could even imagine.

So what lit a fire under Randy, so to speak? It all happened during a vacation in Hawaii.

“My wife and I were on a sightseeing walk in Hawaii when this guy ran by us at a pretty good clip,” Randy recalls. “Soon enough, more racers followed and we soon found ourselves cheering on participants in the Lava Man triathlon. I was so impressed by how fast the lead guy ran by that I did some research and discovered he was Chris McCormack.”

Spotlight on Louisiana Group: employees honor late coworker

honorlatecoworkerIt’s never easy to lose a member of the family and Corey Bush Sr. was definitely a member of the Enterprise family. Corey had been a full-time service agent in Southern Louisiana for 14 years when he was tragically killed while interrupting a burglary in his home two weeks before Christmas.

“Corey was hardworking, loyal and knew everyone,” says Area Manager Eric S. “He was the kind of guy you wanted on your team because you could rely on him for anything.”

“We wanted to do something for his family for the holidays, so we bought gifts for his kids,” says Area Manager Ryan E. “The next year, we wanted to do even more to honor him and help his family. We knew Corey was an avid softball player so we reached out to some of the teams he played with, and established the first memorial softball tournament.”

Enterprising People on the GO: Senior Vice President of European Operations Mike N.

What are your thoughts on our growth in Europe over the past few years?

Achieving growth starts with a great deal of hard work and a plan, especially in countries where we are starting from scratch and the Enterprise brand is unknown. At this point, each market or country is at a different level of maturity and evolution. In the U.K. for instance, we just celebrated 20 years, while in Spain and France we have owned the businesses for four years.

Many of our franchise countries joined the fold in 2015. Each one will have a different strategy for growth.

A little of both if you ask Accountant Vala G., Accounting Supervisor Barrie K. and Intern Gwenan P. from Enterprise Southwest England, who all went skydiving to raise funds for the U.K. Pituitary Foundation.

Vala learned about the opportunity when staff from the Pituitary Foundation visited their office.

“I like trying new things and thought skydiving would be fun. I did have some doubts when I was hanging out of the plane, but by then it was too late,” says Vala who convinced Gwenan and Barrie to jump with her.

For the love of the game

loveofgameWhile many children grow up playing sports in school or with community teams, not many go on to play competitive sports as adults.

Enterprising People: CarShare Market Manager Dorothy R.

carshareField of Dreams is more than just a classic movie about the love of baseball — it’s about making dreams reality, and that inspiration has made its way to Southern New Jersey.
