Management Changes Made At Walmart


Walmart U.S. is again shaking up leadership in merchandising and eCommerce. Steve Breen is moving from eCommerce to the stores team as senior vice president of central merchandising where he will report to Scott Pleiman, according to two internal memos sent Monday to employees from Chief Merchandising Officer Steve Bratspies.

Breen will oversee all assortment, price, cost, replenishment and planning and have the responsibility for implementing Walmart’s new data and analytics operating model across the merchandising division, according to the memos obtained by Talk Business & Politics.

“The vision of the new model is to apply leading-edge analytical thinking, tools and resources against complex business problems. A key aspect of this new model is positioning data science resources inside the Central Merchandising division to create a tighter alignment to best solve complex business problems,” Bratspies explained in one memo.     MORE
