From the Washington Post:
Wal-Mart named company veteran Doug McMillon chief executive on Monday , changing top leadership as it faces both new scrutiny for its treatment of employees and increasing pressure to boost sales.
McMillon, 47, will replace chief executive and President Mike Duke, 63, on Feb. 1, the company announced. Duke will remain with the company as chairman.
McMillon, whose first job with Wal-Mart was as a summer worker nearly three decades ago, most recently served as the head of Wal-Mart International, a fast-growing part of the company with 823,000 employees in 26 countries.
You Wal-Mart haters read that? He started as SUMMER HELP! A lowly line person.
And now is the CEO.
