(Filed Under Fashion News). Doug McMillon has been promoted from president and CEO of Wal-Mart-operated Sam’s Club to president and chief executive officer of Wal-Mart International, the company’s second largest operating segment.

“It is exciting to promote a long-term associate to lead our second largest business,” said Mike Duke, recently named as the company’s president and CEO succeeding Lee Scott. “Doug began his Wal-Mart career as an hourly associate, unloading trucks at a distribution center, while he worked his way through college. In his 18 years with the company, Doug has learned the business from the bottom up, with leadership roles in all three operating divisions. One of the best things about this company is that, as we grow, we are able to offer broad career opportunities to our associates around the world.”

Wal-Mart International accounts for approximately 25 percent of the company’s revenue.

McMillon and Duke will both assume their new roles beginning February 1.
