The world’s largest home improvement retailer turned its sights inward in 2012, putting the brakes on its aggressive overseas expansion efforts and focusing instead on domestic operations. CEO and chairman Frank Blake spearheaded the company’s strategic shift, announcing in September that it would close all seven of the retailer’s big box stores in China. So far, the market has embraced Blake’s back-to-basics vision. Home Depot share prices increased by 50% between the start and end of 2012.
