Home Depot Names Craig Menear to Succeed Blake as CEO

Home Depot Inc. U.S. Retail President Craig Menear will succeed Frank Blake as chief executive officer in about two months, giving the chain a new leader as it navigates a slowing housing rebound.

The move will be effective Nov. 1, the Atlanta-based company said yesterday in a statement. Blake, 65, has been CEO since 2007 and will remain chairman. Menear, who’s been with the chain since 1997, will join him on the board immediately.
