Big local business and big legal problems are featured on this week’s "Naples Daily NewsMakers with Jeff Lytle’’ program this morning at 10 on ABC7.

Richard Broome, Hertz Corp. executive vice president for corporate and community affairs, discusses how the global headquarters move from New Jersey to Estero progressing; how Estero was chosen from other sites in U.S. and Florida; and how soon the first wave of staff will arrive in temporary office space in North Naples. Meanwhile, Collier County Judge Mike Carr discusses how immigration reform can help courts track undocumented criminals from other countries; and what he thinks of fallout from the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

* Video highlights will be posted Monday at naplesnews.com/newsmakers.


Richard Broome

Lytle: You have already met with officials from Florida Gulf Coast University and Edison State College on building a relationship there, with an eye toward employees of the future.

Broome: Exactly right. I mean in a company like ours, a $10-billion global company with over 40,000 employees, you always need a steady stream of talent coming in. And we’d like to develop strong relationships with the two universities you’ve mentioned, and others, to create that pipeline. We need people who are good at program management, process management, IT, industrial engineering, and we’ve talked a little bit about that with FGCU and Edison. And we think that we’re going to be able to work with them to find very talented people who can become our management team, well after I’ve retired.


Mike Carr

Lytle: You say that undocumented suspects and criminals come and go in local courtrooms and you cannot be sure who they are?

Carr: Anything dealing with immigration really needs to go back and make sure that whoever who have in front of you have the same name that they were born with, which we don’t get just by running fingerprint checks. Those fingerprints do not go back to country of origin. They only deal with contacts that law enforcement has had in this country. So any conversation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement needs to have a realistic way to verify the actual identity of the person in front of you ... if no other reason, for security purposes.

Some people are not angels. I know that’s a shock, but there are actually some bad people that, you know, want into the system. Some do some terrible things, and we need to know exactly who we have in front of us.
