Shortly before Tillman took over the home improvement company, it had slipped out of its industry leading position, falling behind the newer and bigger Home Depot chain. Tillman, however, was determined to bring Lowe’s back up to the standards that had once given it such a strong reputation. After conducting extensive consumer research, a new vision was unveiled and implemented at the company. Lowe’s stores are now larger than any of its competitors’ and offer more diverse and upscale products.
