Divestitures are never easy. Standing up a separate company without disrupting ongoing operations, in either the new entity or the parent, is a major challenge in any circumstance. It’s even more complex to accomplish when the newly formed company will have more than $1 billion in revenue and nearly 5,000 employees. That was exactly the challenge the management team undertook when Herc Rentals spun off from The Hertz Corporation in 2016.
