Home Depot has named Teresa Wynn Roseborough its new general counsel, corporate secretary and executive vice president.
Roseborough, who will join Home Depot on Nov. 7, is the deputy general counsel for MetLife and was a partner at Sutherland, handling trial and appellate litigation.
Roseborough will report to Frank Blake, Home Depot’s chairman and CEO. She replaces Jack A. VanWoerkom, who left Home Depot in June after four years as GC, corporate secretary and executive vice president. Home Depot had recruited him from the same post at Staples Inc.
Roseborough has also served as deputy assistant attorney general for the U.S. Department of Justice and clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.
“She brings an incredible legal background to our company, and is sure to be an asset to the entire organization,” said Blake in a statement.
