Trish Mueller has stepped down as chief marketing officer at Home Depot after nearly seven years with the Atlanta-based company.
Director of corporate communications Stephen Holmes confirmed to Adweek today that Mueller announced her resignation approximately two weeks ago and that she has been replaced by president of online operations Kevin Hofmann, who will hold both titles.
In a statement, Mueller said, "It was an honor and a privilege to work at The Home Depot as CMO for the past 5 years!" She added, "For now, I have decided to take some time off to consider what's next, but I will always 'bleed orange' and be grateful for working for, in my opinion, the best retailer in America."
Mueller became vice president of advertising at Home Depot in 2009 after serving as svp of marketing and advertising at Sports Authority.
