About

In my current role with Enterprise, I partner with the Corporate Director for the North Central area of the country.  We work with the sales and financial managers in nine markets.  My day-to-day responsibilities include direct management, training and development of nine financial managers, oversight of the credit decision-making and credit process, fiduciary controls surrounding the conduct of all business practices, support on any Legal or Human Resources issues, and travel to nine markets periodically. 

 

Advice

After transitioning from my role as a leader of a financial organization within the Army to an entry level position in the financial division at Enterprise, I wish I had known how very similar it would be.  After seven years on active duty, I was expecting a significant change.  The most significant change was learning the new industry jargon.  Learning to speak civilian — or without the military jargon — early on was instrumental in communicating with new managers and coworkers.  It was refreshing to learn that Enterprise is a team-oriented, meritocracy that supports and develops those members who want to advance their careers.
