A Warm Welcome to Hertz – World Headquarters Moving to Southwest Florida
On May 8, 2013 after much anticipation who the Fortune 500 company was going to be, we were cheered to learn it is Hertz (currently based in New Jersey). We welcome Hertz employees with open arms and you will soon learn that the classical friendly Southwest Florida sunshine is not just in the sky, but in the hearts of the residents here. Welcome to paradise! Beaches, boating, golfing, tennis, kayaking, parks, arts… it’s all here.
In the announcement, Hertz CEO, Mark Frissora, said: “Again, I’ll bring this down to a combination of things,” he said. “One is quality of life, one is the industry is travel and tourism and that was a big draw for Florida.
The other issue is Southwest Florida has a long way to go for growth. There is a lot of untapped potential. We wanted to be a significant entity in the community. We can draw from that community and not have to compete with 20 other large companies.”
