In 1970, Taylor earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Denver.[1] After graduation he sought experience outside the family business and worked at RLM Leasing, a Ford Motor Company affiliate based in San Francisco, CA.

The combined fleet is over one million vehicles rented out by roughly 78,000 employees.[2]
