business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Home Depot CEO Robert Nardelli, much criticized over the past week for what appeared to arrogant behavior at his company’s annual shareholders meeting, has been named chairman of the Business Roundtable’s Partnership for Disaster Task Force.

The appointment was made because of what is viewed as Home Depot’s leadership during last year’s hurricane disasters on the Gulf Coast.
