Coleman Peterson started his 10-year career with Walmart in 1994 just as the company was expanding internationally. One of the things that attracted Peterson to the company was how well the Walmart culture aligned with his own values. Peterson recognized that respect for the individual, a commitment to excellence, and a focus on the customer wasn’t just good for customers, but also for associates, both domestically and internationally.
