Fayetteville Free Weekly - June 4, 2009
Expect a more relaxed Wal-Mart host at this year's shareholders meeting. No one, of course, could out do the late ball cap wearing Sam Moore Walton, but Wal-Mart's new president and CEO Michael Duke will sure try. This will be Duke's first shareholders meeting as the man at the top. Despite his humble Kansas upbringing, the former Wal-Mart "high sheriff" H. Lee Scott, who proceeded Duke, could not pull off the down-home image as Wal-Mart head cheerleader. Insiders say that Duke can pull it off. . . . Duke joined Wal-Mart in 1995, coming from the Federated Department Store group and May Department Stores. He is a graduate of Georgia Tech, with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering.
