Home Depot Manager, Strategic Business Development in Atlanta, Georgia

POSITION PURPOSE

The Home Depot ("THD") is redefining the future of retail. As the 4th largest retailer and 7th largest ecommerce retailer in the US, we have been named one of the world's most innovative companies and are on a mission to meld our 2,200+ stores, 400k+ associates, dozens of unique services, and award-winning website to enable "doers" of all types, whatever the job is at hand. The Strategic Business Development ("SBD") team helps lead the charge, working with business partners to both develop and execute THD s corporate strategy.

SBD starts the process by leading THD s annual strategic planning efforts to identify the most critical focus areas for the next 1-3 years and, based on those focus areas, works with business leaders to determine the optimal mix of tactics to advance that strategy. With the strategy defined, SBD heavily supports key organic growth initiatives (via research, planning and implementation) and oversees all aspects of inorganic growth (i.e., partnership development, corporate investment, mergers and acquisitions). As part of SBD, team members will deepen their knowledge of retail generally and home improvement specifically, investigate emerging technologies influencing retail, and explore various retail functional strategies (i.e., customer in-store and online experience, merchandising, pricing, delivery, marketing, etc.).

The Manager role takes ownership of work streams that are most critical to THD s strategic vision, often having the opportunity to lead Analysts / Senior Analysts within SBD. In this role, the Manager receives exposure to the whole THD business and has the opportunity to cultivate trusted working relationships with senior business partners while affecting change from within one of the world s leading retailers.
