Chief Operations Officer Gisel Ruiz Exits Walmart and Sam's Club

Gisel Ruiz, Sam’s Club's Chief Operations Officer, is parting ways with Walmart to pursue other passions. Since 1992, she has been apart of the retailer’s team. But, Bloomberg noted that there is more to Ruiz’s departure than meets the eye. Because her retirement follows closely behind former Executive Vice President Jacqui Canney’s own resignation, the news source reports that Ruiz is the second high-ranking female executive to leave in the past couple of weeks.

John Furner, President and CEO, Sam's Club“Gisel has left an indelible impression on our company,” said Sam’s Club Chief Executive Officer John Furner. He also noted in an internal memo that Ruiz helped strengthen Sam’s Club’s online business and employee satisfaction.

Gisel Ruiz, Retiring COO, Walmart and Sam's ClubStarting as a store management trainee, Ruiz has risen through the ranks, serving in top exec positions like Head of International Human Resources and Executive Vice President, COO of the U.S. division. Adding to her achievements, Ruiz was named on Fortune Magazine’s most powerful women in business list for two years running.

Walmart’s current Senior Vice President Dacona Smith, will replace Gisel Ruiz effective April 15, 2019.
