REUTERS/Mike Blake(Reuters) - Walmart Inc said on Friday its chief executive for e-commerce operations in the United States, Marc Lore, will step down at the end of the month.
Lore joined Walmart in 2016 when it bought Jet.com, an online retailer that he co-founded, to bolster its e-commerce push.
Lore will serve in a consulting role with Walmart through September, the company said.
Walmart, which combined its store and e-commerce teams last year, said the U.S. omni-channel business will report to U.S CEO John Furner from the start of the next month.
