Hertz Begins Construction On Global Headquarters In Estero, Florida, Expected To Create 400 Local Jobs
"Florida is a global tourism epicenter, with more than 89 million visitors last year alone and almost one million Floridians employed in the industry. As the world's largest car rental company, we believe Southwest Florida is the perfect location for our worldwide headquarters," said Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark P. Frissora. "We are gratified, as we commemorate the groundbreaking today, by the ongoing support and warm welcome from public officials at all levels and citizens throughout the region. We are already calling Southwest Florida our home and we will quickly become an important part of the community."
As part of Hertz's rebranding efforts, the company said its new headquarters building will apply best practices in sustainable design and construction to achieve LEED Gold certification – from energy-efficient lighting and equipment, and recycled building materials and finishes, to the installation of solar panels and water-saving fixtures.
Hertz announced that it would move its global headquarters to Estero, Florida following its acquisition of the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group. As of November 2013, Hertz established a temporary headquarter operations in Naples, Florida, while the Estero building is under construction.
