Ok kicking it off, our first guest on the podcast is someone special. Someone who has been named to the Forbes Most Powerful People four out of the last five years, coming in at #23 in 2018. This week I am interviewing Doug McMillon, the current CEO of the Fortune 1 company in the world, Walmart. Doug is honestly one of the most humble, gracious people out there. If you randomly met him, you would just walk away thinking, "I like that guy" not, "wow, that was the 23rd most powerful person in the world." McMillon began his first job with Walmart as a summer associate in high school unloading trucks. He got his undergrad degree at Arkansas and then his MBA at Tulsa is 1991. Soon after he joined the buyer-training program. Worked him way up to President of Sam's club where he was from 2005-2009. Then spent 4 years as President of Walmart International. Finally, in 2014, he became the fifth CEO of Walmart, Inc. where he has been since. Doug's tenure has seen some big decisions. He has done a lot to change the stigma of Walmarts brand including raise its minimum pay, fostering innovation and focusing on a more integrated e-commerce opportunity. Changing the course of a big battleship like Walmart isn't easy but if anyone has the ability to do it, it's Doug. I'm overjoyed to present to you: Doug McMillon.
