New COO for Walmart India

Date : 25 July 2017

Walmart India will appoint Devendra Chawla as its new Chief Operating Officer, from mid-August 2017.

Wealth of experience...

Chawla has previously worked at several well-known companies, including Reliance Retail, Coco-Cola and Asian Paints. Most recently, Chawla resigned as CEO of Future Group, having joined the company in 2009. He will report to Walmart India CEO Krish Iyer, and will manage the merchandising, marketing and omnichannel business. With competition in India heating-up, this latest announcement could be the lever that drives forward the expansion of Walmart's store network.
