Doug McMillon

President and CEO, Walmart Inc.

Doug McMillon is a lifelong merchant. He began his Walmart career in 1984 as an hourly associate, picking orders and unloading trailers in a warehouse. He has since served in senior leadership roles across each business segment.

During his tenure as CEO, which began in 2014, Walmart associates have transformed the company into a people-led, tech-powered omnichannel retailer dedicated to helping people save money and live better. It has invested heavily in its people by increasing wages, expanding parental leave and paying for certificates or degrees for associates seeking education opportunities. Walmart has lowered its prices and embraced technology to improve customer and associate experiences. The company also launched Project Gigaton, a supplier collaboration that’s expected to reduce, avoid or sequester 1 billion metric tons of emissions worldwide by 2030. It met the initial goal years ahead of schedule.

Doug serves on the boards of directors of Business Roundtable, the Consumer Goods Forum and the U.S.-China Business Council. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Arkansas and an MBA from the University of Tulsa.
