Walmart MBA – Senior Manager
“We’re leaning into innovation in retail by building a seamless shopping experience from end-to-end. We’re playing offense. The flywheel we’re creating is based on a set of mutually reinforcing assets that fit together to serve customers more holistically. The combination of our physical and digital assets is unique, and it positions us well as we look for ways we can leverage those assets to help solve problems for customers. We’re a fast-moving team, willing to step out of our comfort zone to try new things and iterate. We’ll continue to be there for people in times of crisis, and we’ll continue to innovate and move forward.” – Doug McMillon, CEO
