Helen then tackled the challenges of both inside and outside sales, showcasing her ability to build strong value-based relationships with our customers to drive sales.

Her efforts and strategic thinking led her to a Senior Style Product Manager position and eventually back to sales as the Director of The Home Depot MTO framed business. The various positions Helen has excelled in over the years gave her a deep understanding of our business as a whole. Today, she leads the Home Depot Field Sales team, managing all stock kitchen, bath, and made-to-order framed products at Home Depot stores.
