Though the truck didn’t drive home a win, it did make for one very proud dad.
Ben began his Enterprise Fleet Management career in 2002. Six years later his son, Ethan, was born.
“My son has seen the way Enterprise has been supportive of our family,” Ben says. His son has seen the value the company places in people: “Ethan’s proud of all things Enterprise.”
Ethan chose a truck shape for his pinewood car to compete in his youth group Grand Prix race. Ben was thrilled when his son asked if they could replicate an Enterprise Truck Rental box truck. Naturally, Ben was very excited and proud of Ethan for developing the idea. It was a fun father-son bonding experience working together on Ethan’s idea.
With his dad’s assistance, Ethan created arguably the best-looking vehicle in the derby. Despite not bringing home a win, the project scored deeper meaning for Ben as Ethan was drawing his motivation from Ben’s incredibly positive career experiences.
“I’m blessed to have a career that’s also my hobby – coding – and work alongside top-notch people,” says Ben.
