"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."
