Born in Newark, New Jersey, Bernard Marcus graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Pharmacy. He worked his way through college as a cabinetmaker. Though originally interested in working as a pharmacist, he found the retail portion of drugstore management more interesting, and began working for various retail companies and chains. He eventually became CEO of Handy Dan Improvement Centers, but he and a co-worker were fired after a disagreement with the board. The pair co-founded The Home Depot in 1979. He served as CEO until 1998, and was Chairman of the Board until 2002.

Bernard Marcus was born to Jewish-Russian immigrant parents in Newark, New Jersey. He grew up in a tenement and graduated from South Side High School in 1947. Marcus wanted to become a doctor but couldn't afford the tuition, so he worked for his father as a cabinet maker through Rutgers University to earn a pharmacy degree. While there he joined the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. He was also a brother of Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity.
Later, Marcus worked at a drugstore as a pharmacist but became more interested in the business and retailing part of the business. He worked at a cosmetics company and various other retail jobs, eventually reaching a position as a top executive with Handy Dan Improvement Centers, a Los Angeles-based chain of home improvement stores. In 1978, after a disagreement with his boss at Handy Dan, he and Home Depot co-founder Arthur Blank were both fired.
Together, with the help of New York investment banker Ken Langone who assembled a group of investors and business partner Arthur Blank, they launched the highly successful home-improvement retailer The Home Depot in 1979. The store revolutionized the home improvement business with its warehouse concept and the three became billionaires as a result. He was the company's first CEO for 19 years and served as chairman of the board until his retirement in 2002.
Mr. Marcus was inducted into the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 2006.
