President of California and Hawaii Enterprise Rent-A-Car
A career-long dedication to Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the communities it serves has been the defining principle of Greg Stubblefield’s professional life. As president of the company’s California and Hawaii operations, Stubblefield instills in his employees the value of charitable giving as an integral part of running a successful business. In recognition of his philanthropic leadership, Stubblefield was named chair of the United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ 2002-03 fundraising campaign. In that capacity, he counseled local companies on how to make the most of their United Way campaigns and urged senior executives to join him in setting the example for employee participation. In 2004, he became chairman of United Way’s Corporate Board.
Stubblefield, 45, has been with Enterprise since graduating from UC Berkeley in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in social science. At the time he was hired, the company had been doing business in Los Angeles for two years and had a rental fleet of fewer than 2,000 vehicles. Today, Enterprise is North America’s largest rental car company, boasting a fleet of more than 50,000 cars in Southern California alone.
Like nearly all of Enterprise’s senior officers, Stubblefield started with the company as a management trainee, quickly working his way up the ranks to rental branch manager, area manager and regional vice president, all in Southern California. That led to his becoming a corporate vice president at company headquarters in St. Louis, and later he was named senior vice president of international operations in charge of expanding and developing Enterprise’s business outside the United States.
Stubblefield returned to the Los Angeles area in 1999 to assume the role of executive vice president and general manager of Enterprise’s Southern California Division, the company’s largest operating group, which extends from the state’s central coast south to the Mexican border. In 2003, he became president and general manager of the division and a year later, he was named president of the company’s California and Hawaii operations. He is directly responsible for all automotive operations in the two states, including rental, fleet services (leasing), car sales, truck rental, and rideshare services, along with administrative operations.
Stubblefield has been involved in numerous charitable organizations throughout his professional life. In addition to his positions with United Way, he serves or has served as a board member of the Los Angeles Urban League, the St. Louis University International School of Business and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis. He also serves on the board of the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation – the company’s charitable arm – and on the board of the Mayfield Junior School in Pasadena.
Stubblefield and his family make their home in the Pasadena area.
