He spent three years there before returning to St. Louis and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
Between 1970-1976, Taylor worked his way up through the company. In 1976, he was promoted to General Manager of the St. Louis region. In 1980, he took the position of President and Chief Operating Officer. In 1990, Andy was promoted to Chief Executive Officer and then Chairman in 2001. Enterprise grew from a fleet of 5,000 cars to more than 900,000 vehicles internationally during his tenure. With the purchase of Vanguard Automotive Group, Enterprise gained both National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car. The combined fleet is over one million vehicles rented out by roughly 78,000 employees.
