Wal-Mart May Hire Another X5 Russian Executive, Kommersant Says

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. may hire Ekaterina Ishevskaya, a former commercial director at Russia’s X5 Retail Group NV (FIVE), after appointing X5 ex-CEO Lev Khasis senior vice president last year, Kommersant reported.

Ishevskaya will be in charge of global brands purchases for Wal-Mart, the Moscow-based newspaper said, citing people it didn’t identified. Both executives will also help the U.S. retailer enter the Russian market, Kommersant said.
