As CEO, Doug McMillon leads a strong management team that is helping people around the world save money and live better – anytime and anywhere – in retail stores, online, and through their mobile devices. Each week, over 260 million customers and members visit our 11,723 stores under 59 banners in 28 countries and e-commerce websites in 11 countries.

McMillon previously served as president and CEO of the company’s international and Sam’s Club business units, and he is a longtime champion of Walmart’s customers, associates and culture. In 1984, he worked as an hourly summer associate in a Walmart distribution center, and in 1990, while pursuing his MBA, he rejoined the company as an assistant manager in a Tulsa, Okla., store before moving to merchandising.

Under his leadership, Walmart has remained at the forefront of innovation and continues to set the pace for the industry. From risk-taking acquisitions such as the purchase of Jet.com to investing in the future of the industry by prioritizing workforce solutions and spearheading initiatives that empower businesses to be a force for good, McMillon has embraced bold decisions and blazed a trail into unchartered territory. His dedication, vision and passion for Walmart’s customers and associates are an inspiration to retail executives around the world.
