Walmart U.S. appointed Duncan Mac Naughton to chief merchandising officer for U.S. stores, effective immediately. Mac Naughton will oversee all merchandise categories across more than 3,700 stores in the U.S. business. He will continue to report to Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. president and CEO.

"We are fortunate to have outstanding, seasoned leadership across our merchant organization. Duncan has distinguished himself with a proven record of success in every organization that he has worked in, including Walmart in the United States and Canada," said Simon. "He is a strong steward of our culture and he understands that merchandising is at the very core of our business. Duncan is committed to giving our customers a breadth of assortment, national brands and every day low prices."

"I am pleased to have the privilege to lead Walmart U.S. merchandising," said Mac Naughton. "We remain focused on ensuring that our assortment exceeds our customers' expectations, both in stores and online. While much has been accomplished, we are working closely with our suppliers to deliver the products and the brands our customers are looking for at Walmart's every day low prices.

"Our team is more committed than ever to our mission of saving people money so they can live better," said Mac Naughton. "We intend to make the shopping experience more fun for our customers through increasing promotional intensity by effectively utilizing action alley. In the end, it is about having great products at every day low prices."

Mac Naughton joined the company in 2009 as chief merchandising officer for Walmart Canada. In October 2010, he was named executive vice president of merchandising for Walmart U.S., where he was responsible for consumables, health and wellness, and Walmart.com. Before joining Walmart, Mac Naughton held leadership roles at Kraft Foods Inc., H.E. Butt Grocery Company and Albertson's Inc.
