During his 19 years with Walmart, Mike Duke led the logistics, distribution, and administration divisions. From 2005 to 2009, he was in charge of Walmart U.S., finishing his career in 2014 as president and CEO of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. While reflecting on his time with Walmart, Duke said, “This is a great company and it has been an honor to help advance Sam Walton’s vision of giving people around the world a better life.” Rob Walton agreed, saying, “Mike put in place the building blocks for the next generation Walmart and today the company is stronger, more global, and more unified across all our stores, mobile, and online.”
