Douglas McMillon, a well-known American businessman, and the president and (CEO) of Walmart Inc. was born in Tennessee. Douglas has occasionally been among the top buyers of potpourri, Halloween candy, and teen sportswear in the entire world. When he finished his education, he called Walmart and informed an executive that he was interested in training to work as a buyer. Over the course of five decades, Douglas attained this status and professional accomplishment. It was more than enough for him to advance and serve as CEO of the enormous supermart. When McMillon took over the business, growth slowed and rival competition intensified.
