Portrait of Andrea S.

My most rewarding experiences in the Sales & Marketing Development Program (SMDP) came from relationship building and people management.

Drea is currently an eCommerce Manager within our Global Tools & Storage business. She started her career in SMDP on the Home Depot retail team in 2011.

During her three years in the program, Drea experienced multiple roles including Sales Coordinator, Market Manager and Field Marketing. These provided a strong product, marketing and sales foundation before she later became a Hand Tools, Accessory and Storage (HTAS) Specialist Manager within our Global Tools & Storage Independent Channel (I.C.) Field Sales team.

“I reflect back on the unique opportunity to manage people early in my career. It helped my self-awareness, communication skills and professional growth tremendously. I could not have handled the new leadership role I am in today without it.”

 

Drea’s advice to future SMDP participants?

“Take time to develop peer and mentor relationships but don’t forget to pay it forward,” she said. “A new challenge or obstacle becomes less daunting when you have a strong network to get advice from. Even early in your career, you have valuable experiences and perspectives to draw from. Everyone benefits when you share what you’ve learned.”
