“We are thrilled to have Gil join Hertz as Chief Executive Officer,” said Tom Wagner, Vice Chair of the Hertz Board of Directors. “Gil’s experience as a successful leader in operationally intensive businesses will further strengthen the company’s world-class team of over 27,000 global employees who work tirelessly to deliver outstanding service to customers daily.
