Walmart India has promoted Sameer Aggarwal to the position of Deputy Chief Executive Officer. This happens to be his second promotion in his almost two-year stint at the company.
Aggarwal would be reporting to Krish Iyer, President & CEO Walmart India and would be in-charge of overseeing operations, marketing, real estate, kirana development program, digital, e-commerce, merchandising, and strategy.
A retail veteran who has worked with Yum Brands in Thailand and Sainsbury in London, Aggarwal joined Walmart India in April 2018 as the Chief Strategy and Administrative Officer. His first promotion took place within eight months when he was elevated to the role of Chief Business Officer in December 2018.
His promotion to the role of Deputy CEO comes almost exactly after a year since his last promotion.
