Microsoft Shops at Wal-Mart for an Operating Chief - New York Times

Microsoft Shops at Wal-Mart for an Operating Chief - New York Times: "The executive, Kevin Turner, 40, had a 19-year career at Wal-Mart, where he rose quickly through the management ranks to become the retailer's chief information officer and, most recently, the chief executive of Sam's Club, the company's warehouse club division.
