ESTERO — Hertz Global Holdings, in the latest of multiple moves in its executive financial ranks, named Alexandra (Alex) Brooks Senior Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer, effective Nov. 1.

Brooks has more than 25 years of experience in finance, accounting and audit. Prior to joining Hertz, she was vice president, internal audit at Aptiv PLC, a global technology company, and before that was the CFO for Champion Windows and Home Exteriors, a home improvement company. She has also held a variety of leadership roles at the GE, the release adds, including Global Controller for the Aviation segment, executive technical advisor to the corporate audit staff and global controller for the Plastics division. She began her career with Pricewaterhouse Coopers and also worked for General Motors in a variety of finance and accounting roles.

"I know her leadership and extensive accounting, finance and audit experience will continue to serve Hertz well as we further progress our efforts to ensure a strong future for the company."
