Carolyn Kindle

President, Enterprise Mobility Foundation

Carolyn Kindle is among the third generation of the Taylor family to steer Enterprise Mobility into the future. As president of the Enterprise Mobility Foundation, she develops and guides long-term goals by identifying the best ways to offer sustained support to thousands of registered nonprofits focusing on improving communities, education and environmental stewardship.

Having grown up around the business, Kindle officially began her journey when she interned for Enterprise Rent-A-Car while studying at the University of Tulsa. After graduation, she joined the organization full-time in various management roles where she grasped and experienced the importance of Enterprise Mobility’s signature customer service.

In 2003, Kindle shifted her focus to overseeing national insurance accounts, which proved to be an important stepping stone to later support Enterprise Mobility’s regional subsidiaries in the southeast United States as assistant vice president of rental in 2007. 

In 2010, Kindle pursued her passion for philanthropy and community-building across the St. Louis region. That’s when she served as secretary for the Crawford Taylor Foundation, which represents the Taylor family’s philanthropic endeavor. 

Kindle was then promoted to vice president and executive director of the Enterprise Mobility Foundation in 2013. Over the years, she has led the Foundation board in reviewing grant applications for local community nonprofits, the majority of which are identified by Enterprise Mobility team members.

Kindle was elevated to senior vice president in 2017 and became president of the Foundation in 2019. In that time, she has continued to oversee the Foundation’s board of trustees, working alongside Enterprise Mobility corporate officers and general managers in considering charitable requests.

Kindle is a board member for SSM Health and Greater St. Louis Inc. She also continues to make history in her hometown as part of the first majority female-owned club in Major League Soccer (MLS) history: St. Louis CITY SC. Kindle serves as chief executive officer for the club, which began play in 2023 and advanced to postseason play in its first year.
