Arthur Blank Net Worth And Business Ventures
As of 2022, the net worth of the CEO of the home improvement retailer The Home Depot Arthur Blank gets estimated to be seven billion dollars.
His career began as a senior accountant for the Arthur Young and Company, but later joined the Daylin Corporation, where he rose to become president of Elliott's Drug Stores/Stripe Discount Stores in 1970.
Eventually, Daylin sold the Elliot's Stripe division, so he moved and went to work for Bernie Marcus at the Handy Dan division.
Disaster struck in 1978 when he and Marcus got fired from their jobs and began their store just three years later.
In the next two decades, he served as the CEO of the Home Sport until his uneventful retirement in 2000, but that did not mean he stopped working altogether.
Instead, he poured his investment into Atlanta Falcons of the NFL and Atlanta United of Major League Soccer.
