Under fire for possibly violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has created the new position of international compliance chief in an effort to prevent future problems.
Earlier this month, Wal-Mart announced in an internal memo that it hired Daniel Trujillo to fill the new position, the Wall Street Journal reported. Trujillo, whose title is senior vice president and chief compliance officer–Walmart International, took over the role earlier this week. Trujillo, 42, left his position as deputy general counsel and director of compliance at oil field services company Schlumberger Ltd. for the Wal-Mart gig. He is a native of Argentina and speaks five languages, according to the WSJ.
