Pam Nicholson is ranked America’s 20th most powerful woman

Look no further than Pam Nicholson, the CEO of Enterprise Holdings, to see how far you can go when you start as a female MT at Enterprise.

Pam has just been ranked the 20th most powerful American woman in business by Fortune magazine. In the editorial they wrote, “As the CEO of Enterprise Holdings whose Enterprise, National, and Alamo brands make up almost half of America’s rental-car market, Nicholson is the travel industry’s top woman. A 34-year Enterprise veteran, she became the company’s first nonfamily CEO in 2013. Since then she’s both grown the U.S. business and expanded overseas, boosting revenue 18% to a projected $19.4 billion this year.”

In a very exciting move for the UK, Bridget Long was appointed to the position of Vice President/General Manager for the Southeast England Group or U1, the UK’s largest daily rental operating group.

Bridget began her Enterprise career in January 2000 as a Management Trainee in Chicago. She quickly rose to Area Manager and in 2005 managed operations at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The following year she was promoted to Regional Rental Manager and moved to South Florida where she managed multiple home city regions.
In 2009, Bridget was promoted Airport Market Manager at Miami International Airport, where she played a central role in the integration of the National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands following the Vanguard acquisition. Bridget was promoted to Regional Vice President of the Seattle Group in 2011 and achieved tremendous results across all areas of the business.

Last year she was promoted to Vice President of Rental for the San Francisco Group where she helped the group accomplish record-breaking performance and exceptional growth.

Since joining the U1 Team, Bridget’s enthusiasm, energy and drive to be successful are clearly evident to everyone who meets her. She brings a wealth of experience, along with a new perspective on the business.
