Hertz vacancy as Malony quits for Whizz-Kidz

Hertz International has lost its director of public affairs for Europe, the Middle East and Africa to children’s charity Whizz-Kidz.

Hertz International has lost its director of public affairs for

Europe, the Middle East and Africa to children’s charity Whizz-Kidz.



Sarah Molony has joined the charity as its first director of

communications.



Her primary role at Whizz-Kidz, which provides equipment for children

with mobility problems, will be to take its message to a wider

audience.



Hertz’s public affairs manager Gareth Wynn is carrying out Molony’s

duties but Hertz International president Antoine Cau is still deciding

how to structure the director role in the wake of Molony’s departure.

The public affairs remit includes overseeing Hertz’s agencies and media

relations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.



Wynn reports to Cau, who runs all Hertz operations outside of the US,

and has a dotted line report to Hertz’s vice president of corporate

affairs in the US, Joseph Russo.



Hertz’s biggest markets in the region are the UK, Germany, France, Italy

and Spain. Although Hertz does not have agency support in the UK, it

uses PowerAxle in Spain, BDDP Corporation in France and Dragonetti and

Associates in Italy. It is currently looking for an agency in

Germany.



The company operates a global fleet of nearly 400,000 vehicles in 140

countries. Revenue from the rentals is evenly split between business and

leisure travellers.
