The Home Depot has appointed Matt Carey executive vp of customer experience and Fahim Siddiqui executive vp and chief information officer.

In his just-created role, Carey will lead the design and development of new and innovative solutions that drive a seamless experience for consumers who turn to Home Depot for their home improvement projects in stores, online or on their mobile devices, the retailer stated. Prior to joining Home Depot, Carey was senior vp and chief technology officer at eBay. Before that, he spent more than 20 years with Walmart, where he served as senior vp and chief technology officer, the company maintained.

Siddiqui will supervise the company’s technology strategy, infrastructure and software development for Home Depot. He joined the retailer in 2018 as senior vp of information technology after spending more than three decades leading software development in the retail, energy and telecom sectors including Staples, MCI, Time Warner Telecom and Sprint, Home Depot noted.

“In his 14 years with The Home Depot, Matt has spearheaded an enormous technology transformation across our stores, supply chain, merchandising and digital presence,” said Ted Decker, Home Depot CEO and president, in announcing the executive moves. “Now more than ever, our customers expect to shop with us how, when, and where they want, and there’s little tolerance for friction in the shopping experience. Matt has a proven track record driving customer-first technology innovation, and I look forward to his leadership as we continue to make shopping at Home Depot a truly interconnected, easy experience for our customers.”    

Decker added, “Fahim is a tremendous leader and a brilliant technologist who understands the power of technology to unlock a better experience for our customers and associates, and I look forward to working with him in this next phase of growth for The Home Depot.”
