RAPAPORT... Judith McKenna will become the new president and CEO of Walmart International, the US retail chain’s second-largest operating section, replacing David Cheesewright. 

McKenna will continue in her current role as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Walmart US until February 1, when she will assume her new role, the company reported. She has been with the retailer since 1996, beginning her career as chief operating officer and chief financial officer of the UK division Asda.

“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Judith for many years and have seen first-hand her ability to lead strategic change, build relationships with our associates and strengthen our business,” said Walmart group president and CEO Doug McMillon.

Cheesewright, who stepped down from the position to pursue a more part-time role, will continue his current service through March, after which he will take on special company projects.
