"Hertz is proud to partner with The Greenbrier Classic for the third
consecutive year and honor our nation's paralyzed veterans," commented Mark P.
Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We established the
Hertz for Heroes program to recognize those defending our country and the
inspired patriotism that accompanies their service. Our partnership with the
Greenbrier, America's Resort, celebrates and gives back to those veterans who
have fought and made significant personal sacrifices for our freedoms."
The Hertz for Heroes Greenbrier Classic initiative includes a charitable
contribution to Paralyzed Veterans of America: $10 for every birdie, $50 for
every eagle and $500 for every hole-in-one recorded during the 2013 Greenbrier
Classic by PGA Tour professionals (guaranteeing up to $20,000 through Sunday).
Hertz for Heroes, a project initiated by Hertz employees with military
backgrounds, was formerly launched in 2011 when the company donated 40,000
free weekend rentals to vets returning home from overseas. Hertz for Heroes
was expanded when the Company joined the White House's Veteran's Hiring
Initiative, Joining Forces, led by the First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden. In
support of Joining Forces, Hertz launched a military hiring portal,
http://hertz.jobs/military that allows veterans and their family members to
view and apply for available Hertz jobs across all company divisions. To date,
Hertz has hired more than 300 veterans, meeting its commitment to the Joining
Forces initiative. Hertz for Heroes has logistical and distribution support
from the 8500 member National Defense Transportation Association, (NDTA).
Hertz is committed to offering its customers the most technologically
innovative products and services available to keep customers "Traveling at the
Speed of Hertz." This includes Hertz 'Carfirmations'; 'Gold Choice', which
gives Gold members the power to keep the car they reserved or simply choose a
different car from the Gold Choice area; and e-Return, with the fastest car
rental drop-off that includes an email receipt within hours. These are all
complimentary services for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members, which is currently
free to join. In addition, Hertz continues to expand the presence of its
ExpressRent Interactive Kiosks that let customers rent a car, with or without
a reservation, through a live, face-to-face video kiosk.
