While Office Depot is clearly a powerful organization today, the Company's beginnings were quite modest. Office Depot was founded in Florida in 1986 and opened its first store in Fort Lauderdale. In late 1987, David I. Fuente assumed the post of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the fledging company, and took Office Depot public in 1988. Fuente immediately began to execute an ambitious plan to expand the Company's footprint in key U.S. markets. The results were dramatic: By the end of 1990 Office Depot had 173 stores in 27 states. That same year, Office Depot merged with The Office Club, Inc., becoming the largest office products retailer in North America.
1986 Office Depot, Inc. founded in Florida by Pat Sher, Jack Kopkin and Stephen Dougherty. Opened our first store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
In 1998, Office Depot merged with Viking Office Products, a public company and the world's leading direct mail marketer of office products. The addition of Viking to the Office Depot organization not only vastly expanded Office Depot's international presence, but also made the Company the leading provider of office products and services in the world.
As Office Depot grew larger and more complex, its management leadership needs changed. In 2000, David Fuente stepped aside, and Bruce Nelson was appointed Chief Executive Officer. Nelson's charge was challenging: To guide Office Depot at an exciting and defining time in the Company's evolution. Nelson immediately undertook several new management initiatives geared to make Office Depot a more compelling place to work, shop and invest. With a careful focus on invigorating the Company's U.S. retail operations, expanding its international business, growing its best-in-class e-commerce business, and building a
world-class warehouse and distribution network, Nelson and his management team are poised to take Office Depot to the next level of growth and success.
