Under Doug’s leadership, Walmart is making life easier for busy families and building trust with customers. It is investing heavily in associate wages, benefits and education—including a debt-free, dollar-a-day college program and an expanded parental leave policy.

Doug is a longtime champion of Walmart’s customers, its associates and the company’s culture. He was named president and CEO in 2014. From 2009 to 2014 he was president and CEO of Walmart International, and from 2005 to 2009 he served as president and CEO of Sam’s Club. He has worked at Walmart for nearly 30 years, starting as a teenager unloading trucks for an hourly wage. He went on to serve in senior leadership roles in all of Walmart’s business segments. He remains a merchant at heart.

Doug is the incoming chairman of the Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of America’s leading companies. He will assume the role of chair in January 2020. He serves on the boards of directors of the Consumer Goods Forum, the U.S.-China Business Council and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. He also sits on the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board and the advisory board of the Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management in Beijing, China.
