Walmart.com is already a large, fast growing and dynamic organization, but global e-commerce president and CEO Neil Ashe is intent on executing an integrated vision of commerce that no one else has — or can.
Ashe participated earlier this week in a joint presentation with Walmart chief information officer Karenann Terrell at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen, Colo. The pair took turns describing in the broadest of strokes some of Walmart’s strategic initiatives and the interplay between the company’s Bentonville, Ark., headquarters and the global e-commerce headquarters in San Bruno, Calif. However, it was Ashe who offered the vision of the role he sees Walmart playing in an increasingly digital world where Walmart is competing against the likes of Apple and Google to offer a high quality consumer experience.
