In between his tenures at Enterprise and CarGroup Holdings, Mr. Adams served as Chief Operating Officer of The BabyPlus Company, a manufacturer and distributor of a prenatal education system, and Holland Partners, a developer and manager of multifamily communities.

Mike Odell, President & Chief Executive Officer, said, “Chris has a proven track record of delivering world-class customer service, having cut his teeth rising up through the ranks of Enterprise Rent-A-Car. He will be responsible for leading a cultural change in our stores from transactional- to relationship-based customer service. Chris is very well-rounded and uniquely qualified to lead our associates and set the tone for delivering great customer experiences across all Pep Boys locations.”
