Since December 1998, EV Rentals Cars (EVTP.OB) has continued to expand to meet the growing green trend. EV Rental is the only rental company in the United States that offers a fleet containing only environmentally-friendly hybrid-electric vehicles. Currently, the company has rental facilities at 8 major airports including San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas. The company is on a mission to provide the most advanced green vehicles to the public and to raise the public’s awareness of the benefits of driving clean-fuel cars to increase the demand for these environmentally-conscious vehicles. EV Rental is led by an experienced team of professionals who are conscientiously growing the company and its fleet.
The idea to create EV Rental hit Jeffrey Pink in 1997 when he saw an aerial view of Los Angeles. The founder of the company saw the condition of the air quality in the region and realized that he had to do something to help the environment. Prior to creating EV Rental, Jeffrey worked with Commonwealth Enterprises, which is a family-owned company that builds condominiums and apartment complexes on the western portion of Los Angeles. With over 15 years experience as a services manager, general contractor, and real estate developer, Jeffrey brings an ability to create and maintain strong business relationships as well as the key skills needed to manage the company.
As the Director of Finance and Operations, Larry Pink analyzes the company data and ensures the accuracy of the financial reports. Upon graduating from the University of Michigan Business School, Larry earned a Certified Public Accountant license in Michigan. Along with a strong accounting base, Larry also brings over 15 years of experience in real estate development and construction. Prior to taking on the role at EV Rental, Larry served as President of Commonwealth Enterprises and worked alongside Jeffrey.

EV Rental has a strong executive team moving the company towards success. The company has already passed more than $1 million in fuel savings costs to its customers. As the company’s customer base continues to grow, the amount of fuel saved will also continue to grow. Less fuel used translates to fewer pollutants in the air, which is exactly what Jeffrey Pink envisioned over 10 years ago.
