Early life and career[edit]

Taylor first began working at Enterprise washing cars when he was 16.[2][3][4] He would work during holiday vacations and learn the business from the ground up during summer breaks.

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. He spent three years there before returning to St. Louis and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car[edit]

Between 1970–1976, Taylor worked his way up through the company. In 1976, he was promoted to General Manager of the St. Louis region.[2] 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.[1] 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 1.5 million vehicles rented out by roughly 100,000 employees.[2]
