Before joining the Hertz team, Douglas was senior vice president and treasurer of COTY Inc., a $4.5 billion cosmetics company. In addition, she has held senior treasury and finance positions at Nabisco Inc and JP Morgan after completing her bachelor's degree in accounting from Villanova University and earning an MBA in finance from New York University.
