The building design focuses on quality and collaborative workspaces, natural day lighting and leading edge office design consistent with industry best practices.
In May, Hertz announced its decision to relocate its headquarters to Estero following its November 2012 acquisition of the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Consolidating the corporate offices to one location will allow for increased efficiencies and cost synergies across the company and Estero proved to be the right location to blend Hertz and Dollar Thrifty head office employees.
Hertz will bring approximately 700 jobs to the area, estimating that 400 headquarter jobs could be filled locally, with approximately 300 positions being filled by Hertz employees relocating to the area. The company selected a site at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Williams Road in Estero, Florida for the location of its new headquarters building. As of October 2013, Hertz established a temporary headquarter operations in Naples, Florida, while the Estero building is under construction.
