Walmart India has appointed Sameer Aggarwal as its chief executive officer (CEO) beginning April 1. He will report to Dirk Van Den Berghe, executive vice president and regional CEO of Asia and global sourcing at Walmart. Aggarwal, an MBA from London Business School, succeeds Krish Iyer, who will retire and assume the role of advisor to Best Price, Walmart India.

Aggarwal has more than two decades of experience across industries in general management, strategy, finance and mergers and acquisitions in various countries, the company said on its website.

In his most recent assignment, he was working as the chief finance, development and supply chain officer for KFC Thailand. Prior to that, he worked with Sainsbury’s in its UK and China operations as head of strategy and then executive assistant to the CEO to assist with the CEO transition.

Aggarwal has also worked with McKinsey & Company UK and Australia as associate partner leading projects globally across various sectors and functions for over seven years, the company said.
