Hertz general counsel to step down

Colleen Batcheler has been with the car rental company since 2022

Colleen Batcheler, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of Hertz Global Holdings, has told the company she intends to resign from her role effective April 10 to accept ‘a role outside the company’, according to an SEC filing.

She will remain with the company in a non-executive capacity until April 20 to help with the transition of her duties, the filing states. Requests for comment from Batcheler and Hertz were not returned immediately.

Batcheler joined Hertz in May 2022. She had previously been executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at Conagra Brands since 2009. She spent 16 years with the food company overseeing legal and governmental affairs. Before joining Conagra, she was vice president and corporate secretary at Albertson’s and previously associate counsel with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and an associate with the law firm Jones Day.

The Hertz Corporation, a subsidiary of Hertz Global Holdings, operates the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty vehicle rental brands.
