Walmart Food and Merchandising Leadership Restructuring


BENTONVILLE, AR
Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

In an internal memo reported on by Reuters last week, Walmart revealed major changes to its leadership team, including its food divisions.

According to the Reuters report, Shawn Baldwin, Senior Vice President and General Merchandise Manager for Produce and Global Food Sourcing will transition into a new role with a focus on the Hispanic market. In his place, Martin Mundo, Senior Vice President of Operations, will assume responsibilities.

The Reuters report continued to note that Charles Redfield, Executive Vice President for Food, said that the company is positioning its leaders in a number of new roles so it can deliver and win at a time when retail is constantly changing.

In addition, Walmart named Greg Hall as Senior Vice-President of Merchandise Operation for Food.

The news comes on the heels of Walmart’s recent corporate restructuring announcement, reported on by our sister publication, as the retailer takes on a series of job cuts in an attempt to “right-size” and acclimate to the shifting retail landscape.

“As we said in January, we’re continuing to look at how the company is structured, which includes investing in and adding jobs in some areas and eliminating some in a few others,” Walmart told Talk Business & Politics, in a response to the outlet’s inquiries. “This is all about aligning and creating efficiencies as we change how we work to seamlessly serve our customer through our stores and e-commerce.”

Walmart did not responded to requests for comment.

Deli Market News will continue to report with important updates in retail.
