Carol Tomé is more than a CFO: She runs Home Depot's real estate and strategic business-development units. An 18-year veteran, Tomé is the only officer to have worked with every one of Home Depot's four CEOs—and analysts believe Tomé herself has a shot at the top job.
Carol B. Tomé has served as chief financial officer since May 2001 and was named executive vice president of corporate services at The Home Depot in January 2007. She provides leadership in the areas of real estate, store construction, financial services, strategic business development and growth initiatives. Her corporate finance duties include financial reporting, financial planning and analysis, financial operations, divisional finance, internal audit, investor relations, treasury and tax.
Carol joined The Home Depot in 1995. Prior to that, she was vice president and treasurer of Riverwood International Corporation. Carol began her career as a commercial lender with United Bank of Denver (now Wells Fargo) and then spent several years as director of banking for the Johns-Manville Corporation.
In 2003, Carol joined the UPS board of directors and serves as chair of the audit committee. In January 2008, she joined the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, served as Board Chair for 3 years and now serves as vice-chair of the board. In 2012, Carol became the chair of the board of The Metropolitan Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and currently serves as immediate past chair.
She is an active volunteer, serving as a member of The Committee of 200 and a member of the Atlanta Botanical Garden board of directors.
In 2012, The Wall Street Journal ranked Carol No. 2 on its list of the best chief financial officers in corporate America and Fortune magazine listed her among the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business. In 2013, Carol was named a laureate and a member of the Junior Achievement of Georgia Business Hall of Fame. In 2011, she received a distinguished alumna award from the University of Wyoming. Carol was recognized with the 2009 Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans award by BDN Network and the 2009 CFO of the Year award by the CFO Roundtable. She ranked No. 16 in Forbes magazine’s 2008 list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women and was included by The Wall Street Journal on its list of 50 Women to Watch in 2007.
Carol holds a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Wyoming and a Master of Business Administration in finance from the University of Denver.
