Wal-Mart Stores Announces Executive Changes

Wal-Mart Stores has named new EVPs for its Neighborhood Market and Supercenter divisions as part of a flurry of new leadership appointments and a new operations structure under U.S. COO Judith McKenna. The changes include the trimming of EVP roles for Walmart East and Walmart West and Walmart Realty in what was described by McKenna in a memo as a means of simplifying its leadership structure. McKenna was named U.S. COO in December as part of a new leadership under U.S. CEO Greg Foran. Mike Moore, who previously served as EVP of Walmart’s Neighborhood Markets division has been named EVP of Supercenters for Walmart, while Julie Murphy, formerly the EVP of Walmart West, assumes Moore’s role as EVP for Neighborhood Markets. Joaquin Gonzalez Varela, EVP-Walmart East, is retiring and his role will not be filled, the retailer said. Varela, a 25-year employee of Walmart, has served in that role since 2008 and will retire effective June 15. In addition, the Bentonville, Ark., company is restructuring its central operations team, naming current SVP for innovations Mark Ibboton to a new role as EVP-central operations U.S., where he will take on the additional responsibilities of asset protection and partnering with global e-commerce to implement grocery home shopping within operations.
