Jan 10 Cathy Smith, Wal-Mart Stores Inc's
finance chief for the international division, will leave
at the end of the month to take a "leadership position" at an
unidentified company, The Wall Street Journal reported on
Friday, citing internal company memos.
Smith also leads the international division's strategy. The
division generated $135 billion in sales in 2013.
Before joining Wal-Mart in 2010, Smith had been executive
vice president and chief financial officer at GameStop Corp
Brett Biggs, who is executive vice president and chief
financial officer for Walmart U.S, is slated to replace Smith at
Walmart International, the WSJ said. The Journal said the
Wal-Mart memos were sent on Thursday.
Biggs was senior vice president of operations for the
company's retail warehouse chain, Sam's Club, before he became
CFO of Walmart U.S.
Wal-Mart spokesman Kevin Gardner could not be reached
immediately for comment.
