Wal-Mart has named 13 executives to its US merchandising operations, including consumables, sales innovation, baby products, adult beverages, according to company memo

June 24, 2014 () – Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, named 13 executives to its U.S. merchandising operations, marking the latest shake-up since Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon took the reins in February.

As part of the changes, Scott Huff will be promoted to executive vice president overseeing merchandising operations for the U.S., according to a company memo sent by U.S. Chief Merchandising Officer Duncan Mac Naughton. Huff has been at Wal- Mart since 1994, when he started as an intern.

The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company also named new executives to oversee everything from consumables and sales innovation to baby products and adult beverages. The reshuffling follows the appointment of a new chief for Walmart.com earlier this month and the promotion of Canadian CEO Shelley Broader to a job overseeing Europe, the Middle East and sub-Saharan African in May.

The company announced in April that Greg Foran, the CEO of Wal-Mart’s Chinese unit since 2012, would take over as president and CEO of Asia. He replaced Scott Price, who is moving to the company’s headquarters.

In the merchandising changes, Michelle Gloeckler will become executive vice president of consumables and U.S. manufacturing. She has worked at Wal-Mart for five years, following more than two decades at Hershey Co. John Aden, who had run merchandise services, was named executive vice president of sales innovation for the U.S.
