January 27th Breakfast Meeting with Mike Duke
Mike Duke is back with us in Naples for a second time, Mike was president and CEO of Walmart Stores, Inc. from 2009 to 2014. Before becoming CEO, Mike ran the distribution, logistics and administration divisions as well as Walmart U.S. and Walmart International. Under Mike’s leadership, Walmart’s e-commerce business grew to equal footing with its larger divisions—investing in high-tech talent, acquiring several startups and injecting a bit of Silicon Valley into Bentonville, Arkansas. Much of Walmart’s success during Mike’s tenure as CEO can be attributed to his strong leadership around the company’s culture and core values. His priority was not just that the company grew, but that it grew with integrity.
