Arthur Blank was raised in Queens, New York, USA, with an older brother. Arthur is a graduate from Stuyvesant High School. Later, he earned a Bachelor degree in business administration and accounting at Babson College, and was later awarded Furman University’s honorary degree.

Initially, he worked as a senior accountant at Arthur Young and Company. Later, he worked for the Daylin Corporation in which he step by step reached the position of the Elliott’s Drug Stores/Stripe Discount Stores president. At first he was responsible for the division of Daylin, later moving on to the Handy Dan Home Improvement Centers division. Due to an internal power struggle, Arthur was made redundant, and consequently Blank, together with the former CEO of Handy Dan Bernard Marcus, founded the retailer of construction and home improvement products and services The Home Depot. The company was very successful thus adding billions to the net worth of the founders, including Arthur Blank. After working for 19 years as a president of the company, Blank retired in 2001.

In 2002, Taylor Smith sold the team Atlanta Falcons (NFL) to the current owner Arthur Blank.

In addition to this, he serves in the position of the Chairman of The Arthur Blank Family Foundation as well as the Chairman, CEO and President of AMB Group, LLC. As the member of the Board of Trustees he sits in the Staples and Cox Enterprises and Emory University. All these engagements add popularity and increase the net worth of Arthur Blank.
