Newly promoted Home Depot (HD) executive Craig Menear is the favorite to succeed Frank Blake as CEO of the home-improvement chain, Bloomberg reports.

Menear was elevated to president of Home Depot's U.S. retail division as part of a succession plan for Blake, who will turn 65 in July. There's no timeline for when the latter would leave his job.
