Staples CEO Leaves Home Depot Board
Staples CEO Ron L. Sargent has resigned from The Home Depot Inc.’s board of directors, effective immediately, the Georgia-based home improvement retailer disclosed in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
Sargent did not cite any disagreement on any matter relating to the company’s operations, policies or practices, according to the filing.
