Home Depot names Mueller CMO, replacing Bifulco
The Home Depot promoted Trish Mueller to SVP and CMO this week, replacing Frank Bifulco as the company's top marketer. Bifulco decided to leave the role after nearly three years at the company, Jean Niemi, senior manager of corporate communications, told Direct Marketing News.
“She was a natural fit for this role,” said Niemi. “She's got a great background. We're confident she'll step right in and be successful.”
Mueller's appointment was first reported on AdAge.com after an internal Home Depot announcement was leaked to the media outlet.
Asked why Bifulco's position was open, Niemi said only that he “made the decision to leave.”
