Wal-Mart corporate affairs head Leslie Dach to leave in June

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Leslie Dach, EVP corporate affairs for Wal-Mart Stores, will step down in June. The retailer, which announced the news in a memo to employees, said it is actively searching for a replacement. The news was first reported by Politico.

"Leslie has played a pivotal role in helping us understand the broader role Walmart can play in meeting the major challenges facing society today, and social goals are now an integral part of how we run our business," Wal-Mart chief executive Mike Duke in the memo.

Dach, 58, a former Democratic Party strategist, has been responsible for public policy, government relations, corporate communications and sustainability initiatives. He led efforts to improve Wal-Mart’s image through a range of environmental, anti-obesity and other initiatives. Dach joined Wal-Mart in 2006 after leading an external team from public relations giant Edelman that helped to handle the company’s corporate affairs.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Dach, who commutes between Wal-Mart’s headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., and his home in Washington, D.C., said that it was his decision to leave and that he first approached Duke a few months ago about it. He said that Duke asked him to stay on for a few months to help with the transition.

Judge orders Macy’s, Penney, Martha Stewart into mediation

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — After nearly three weeks of testimony, a New York State Supreme Court Judge ordered Macy’s, J.C. Penney Co. and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia into mediation to try and reach a settlement in their contract dispute trial.

If the three companies do not reach an agreement before April 8, the judge will resume hearing the case.

In another development in the ongoing dispute, Penney agreed not to sell certain Martha Stewart-designed goods (products deemed exclusive to Macy’s) until at least April 8.

Also, Stewart and Macy’s CEO Lundgren had "a productive conversation regarding the ongoing contract dispute," Martha Stewart Living said in statement released prior to the judge’s order for mediation. It was the first time that the two former friends had spoken to each other since December 2011, when Lundgren testified he hung up on Stewart after she called to tell him about the deal.

"We view today’s actions as a positive step forward and welcome a prompt and fair resolution," the statement added.
