Nathan Morton discusses what he considers the most important marketing lessons he has learned from his highly-successful career with companies in all stages -- from start-ups to billion-dollar organizations. Nathan Morton is a well-known leader in the retailing and high technology industries. He has over 30 years of experience in developing companies from early stage enterprises to significant national chains.

Nathan is the former Chairman and CEO of CompUSA, the nation’s largest and first chain of computer superstores. Mr. Morton developed the company from two stores and $60 million in sales to a multi-billion dollar business in less than five years, changing the technology-retailing world. Prior to CompUSA, Mr. Morton was Senior Vice President of operations at Home Depot, Inc. While at Home Depot, he implemented the company’s growth plan across the U.S. Home Depot had 21 stores and $400 million in sales when Mr. Morton joined the company, and he assisted in creating a nation-wide company with over 100 stores and $2 billion in sales. In his first 17 years of business, Mr. Morton worked in retailing, progressing through a variety of continually more responsible positions at leading companies such as Two Guys Discount Department Stores and Target Stores.

He also was the President and CEO of Open Environment Corporation, a client/server enterprise software company, which he developed, built, and then sold to Borland, now known as Inprise.
