Enrique Ostalé is executive vice president and regional chief executive officer – U.K, Latin America and Africa, at Walmart International. He also serves as chairman of the board of directors of Walmart Mexico and Central America, Walmart Chile and as a member of the board for Massmart.
Enrique assumed this expanded regional role in April 2017 after serving previously as CEO of Walmart Latin America, India and Africa (2016-17), CEO of Walmart Mexico, Central America and Latin America (2013-16) and president and CEO of Walmart Chile (2006-13).
His experience in this latter post included leading the successful transition of the D&S chain, acquired by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. in 2009, into what is today Walmart Chile.
