Enterprise Holdings has named Ryan Johnson as Managing Director for UK & Ireland. He takes over from Khaled Shahbo, who has been appointed Senior Vice President of European Operations.
In his new role, Johnson will head up the UK’s largest vehicle rental business.
Johnson, who joined the business as a Management Trainee, was previously General Manager of Enterprise’s Southeast England group, the company’s largest UK region, where he achieved numerous operational and growth milestones, including refocusing the business to deliver mobility solutions to support businesses, essential workers and frontline organisations throughout the pandemic.
He said: “There could not be a more exciting time to lead Enterprise’s UK & Ireland businesses, as there are opportunities everywhere to help customers better understand their transport needs and how rental fits into the broader mobility picture. I’m really looking forward to working with our incredible employees around the UK & Ireland to make Enterprise an even better employer, supplier and partner.”
Shahbo said: “Ryan’s grasp of the transport ecosystem and the importance of sustainable, affordable and flexible mobility to customers is exceptional. He takes over our UK & Ireland operations at a time when many businesses are looking to reinvent themselves and redefine their travel needs.
“Like many of our senior team, he started in a branch and has risen through the ranks due to our employee-centric promote-from-within policy. He will bring the same experience and strategic insight to his new role that he has employed so successfully in growing our Southeast England group.”Tweet
