James is currently responsible for executive development, high potential programs up to senior executive level and driving strategic initiatives that will evolve Walmart to meet future challenges, the scale is the challenge, 1.3 million associates in the US, 2.3 million world-wide. His career before Walmart was six years of risk and business consultancy and a 26-year military career. After an Infantry (Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment) career up to battalion command his last appointment before retiring early was as Assistant Director Counter Terrorism in the British Ministry of Defence. In 2007 he was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by Her Majesty the Queen for that role, an award that he should probably now give back as he is now a US citizen! A key lesson he has learned since leaving the military is that vulnerability is strength.
