Tell us about your career path with Enterprise.
I started as a Management Trainee in Calgary, AB. I moved pretty quickly and was promoted to Branch Manager in Grande Prairie, AB within a year. I moved back to Calgary as a Branch Manager about a year later, and after running multiple locations, I was promoted to Area Manager in Fort McMurray, AB. After a year and a half in Fort McMurray I returned to Calgary once again as an Area Manager, and was then promoted to Group Rental Manager overseeing British Columbia. Overall I’ve had nine promotions in 11 years.
What do you like most about your career with Enterprise?
The people, the culture, the opportunities for advancement and the support from senior leadership.
Do you have a memorable success story from your Enterprise career?
When I was first promoted to Area Manager I was in a very remote area that traditionally struggled with customer service. Within 12 months the team turned their customer service scores around and we had multiple promotions from the area. It was extremely rewarding.
