Wal-Mart names Roces to head ‘Store Experience’

Home Textiles has a brief blurb about the appointment:

Wal-Mart Stores is creating a new organization it calls “Store Experience” to delve more deeply into store planning, space management, and the retailer’s store-of-the-community initiative.

Santiago Roces, who was most recently Wal-Mart’s Korea president, will be leading the initiative. He is relocating to company headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. Roces’ promotion is one of several appointments that make up Wal-Mart’s recently restructured marketing “dream team,” explained John Fleming, evp and chief marketing officer, during Wal-Mart’s presentation Wednesday at the Morgan Stanley Global Consumer & Retail conference here.
