Justin Burleigh is the Vice President of E-Commerce and Interconnected Experience at Home Depot. He is the archetype of a great product person: laser-focused on empathy for the user, and visionary in solving problems without an attachment to the solutions themselves. His team builds the innovative products that help Home Depot’s customers and pros fuel their DIY needs, and it was fascinating to get insight into this household as a technology company.
He also made me aware of the Home Depot Foundation, whose programs serve veterans, offer career paths to skilled trades, and provide disaster relief to affected communities. Very worthy work that we’d love for you to learn more about.
We spoke at the beginning of December 2021
