 THE HOME DEPOT NOMINATES M. FAYE WILSON TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 ATLANTA, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Depot (NYSE: HD), America's largest home center retailer, announced today that its board of directors has nominated M. Faye Wilson, 54, executive vice president, Security Pacific Corporation, for election as a new director.
 Wilson's nomination will be voted on during the May 27 annual Home Depot stockholders' meeting in Atlanta. "The Home Depot is extremely pleased with the nomination of Faye Wilson," said Bernard Marcus, chief executive officer. "We value her knowledge of our company and excellent counsel. In the coming years her insight and expertise will be very important as The Home Depot continues to grow."
 Wilson's professional relationship with Home Depot began in 1982, while she headed the corporate lending unit at Security Pacific National Bank. She worked with Home Depot's chief financial officer, Ron Brill, to secure early financing.
 "During those early days, you had to believe very solidly in Home Depot's business plans, talents and the integrity of the people, namely Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and Ron Brill," said Wilson.
 "I am very honored to be nominated to the Home Depot board of directors because I know the quality of the company and the people to be extraordinary," said Wilson. "They work smart and possess a quality of honesty that makes bankers sleep better at night."
 Wilson joined Security Pacific Bank in 1977. In 1985, she was appointed senior vice president and managing director of the Leveraged Buyout Group for Security Pacific Merchant Bank. From 1987 until assuming her current position, Wilson was managing director of Mergers and Acquisitions for Security Pacific Hoare Govett in London.
 A resident of San Diego, Wilson received a B.S. degree in accounting from Duke University and an M.B.A. and M.A. in international relations from the University of Southern California. She is also a Certified Public Accountant and serves on the board of directors of the San Diego Opera.
