“Pam is a well-respected leader and ideally suited to serve on Walmart’s board given her extensive financial experience and her understanding of the vital role technology plays in business today,” said Walmart Chairman Rob Walton. “The domestic and global perspectives she gained during her 34 years with Accenture give her unique insight into managing a global company that will be invaluable to Walmart.”
“I look forward to working with the board and executive management team and to helping Walmart maintain its retail leadership role,” Craig said. “In an unpredictable global economy I believe Walmart is well-positioned for continued success through its stores and growing eCommerce business, disciplined financial approach and leadership position on important issues facing society.”
