Wal-Mart Former Top Lawyer Quits as CEO at Vail Clinic

Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s former general counsel has left a sports-medicine clinic and foundation three months after becoming chief executive officer, citing governance issues.

Tom Mars, named CEO of the Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute in October, said in an e-mail that he resigned on Jan. 15. He said the governance issues were related to the subsequent decision of one of the founding doctors to end his surgery practice. Mars also resigned from the board of the non-profit institute.
