In Good Company, Arthur Blank shares a visionary roadmap of how purpose and profit can, and should, go hand-in-hand for companies large and small. He reveals never-been-told stories about his abrupt departure from Home Depot, his feelings in the moments and days following the devastating Super Bowl LI, the building and rapid success of Atlanta United, the NFL protests that began in 2016, and many other stories about his purpose-driven philanthropy and the ups and downs in a life of unimaginable business success in multiple settings. Blank illustrates how the values-based culture The Home Depot was built on, and still uses today, can transcend across  any  business or  organization.

Blank takes readers inside the story of how he built his current businesses around six key principles: Put People First; Listen  and Respond; Include Everyone; Innovate Continuously; Lead by Example; Give Back to Others. With these values, Blank succeeded in turning around a struggling NFL team, rebooting a near-bankrupt retail chain, building a revolutionary new stadium in the heart of Atlanta, revitalizing a neighborhood, launching a startup soccer club, and more.

About the Author
Blank founded The Home Depot in 1978 and is now widely recognized for his diverse business portfolio. In addition to the Arthur  M. Blank Family Foundation, Blank’s Family of Businesses includes the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons; MLS’s Atlanta United; the nationwide PGA TOUR Superstore; three ranches in Montana, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, West Creek Ranch and Paradise Valley Ranch; and Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which hosted the 2019 Super Bowl and is home to the Falcons and Atlanta United.

Arthur Blank’s book proceeds will go to The National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia in perpetuity with an initial contribution of $300,000 to celebrate the memoir’s publication this fall.
