Dear Home Depot Board of Directors,

Elizabeth Nowicki, Dear Home Depot Board of Directors,, Truth on the Market (January 04, 2007),

I write regarding the soon-to-be-vacant position of CEO of Home Depot.  As I understand it, the position pays well, little is demanded in terms of results, and the exit package is great.  I would like to be hired to fill the CEO position.  I realize Frank Blake has been tapped as the new CEO, but I would like to think of myself as someone who could fill Nardelli’s shoes for less money than Blake requires.

Alternatively, I would like to be nominated to serve on the Board of Directors of Home Depot.  Where else can I find a job where I actually do not need to show up?

Thank you for your attention to these matters.  I look forward to working with you (minimally), and I really look forward to collecting a large paycheck from you.

Best regards,

Elizabeth Nowicki, Radical Shareholder Primacist Qua Budding Potential (and cheap) CEO

[This is the second time I have reached out to the Home Depot BOD.  I am not optimistic that they will be blogging back.  Some day I would like to ask Lucien Bebchuk if he really believes the executive pay problem will resolve itself.]
