business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Walmart said yesterday that Casey Carl, its top e-commerce executive for the past two years, is leaving the company, and will be succeeded by Tom Ward, Walmart’s senior vice president of last mile deliveries. Ward has been named executive vice president and chief e-commerce officer.

Reuters writes that "Carl is the latest executive to exit the company. Last week, Scott McCall, Walmart’s chief merchandising officer of its U.S. unit, announced his retirement and was replaced by grocery chief Charles Redfield. Brett Biggs, Walmart’s former chief financial officer left the company in late November."
