Estero, Fla. -- The top decision makers for Hertz Corp., including chairman and CEO Mark Frissora, on Monday begin leading the $9 billion company from Southwest Florida.
Ten members of the company’s executive team begin work at its temporary headquarters at 999 Vanderbilt Beach Road in North Naples. The move means about 25 company employees now work out of the leased space in the Fifth Third Bank building, said Richard Broome, vice president of corporate affairs for Hertz.
“It’s an important milestone and it is one of the first tangible signs that Hertz is coming,” Broome said.
Hertz plans to build a $68 million headquarters campus at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Williams Road in Estero. Company employees will work from the North Naples location until the headquarters is finished in 2015.
Some Hertz employees have been working from the North Naples office since August.
“Some employees with young children wanted to be here to get them enrolled in school,” he said.
Broome started working at the North Naples site on Sept. 30, but was traveling in Washington, D.C., by the end of the week.
“The normal work doesn’t go away while we are moving,” Broome said. The company maintains two private aircraft.
The company plans to relocate 300 to 400 workers from New Jersey, Tulsa and other locations to Estero. It will hire another 300 to 400 workers locally over the next two years.
