Ex-Walmart exec Mac Naughton joins CROSSMARK board


Former Walmart Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer Duncan Mac Naughton has joined the board of directors of CROSSMARK, a sales, marketing and merchandising services company focused on the retail and consumer goods industries.

CROSSMARK CEO Steve Schuckenbrock in an internal company announcement said it is a privilege to have Mac Naughton join the company’s board given his extraordinary retail industry experience and leadership from both a manufacturer and retailer perspective.

“I have always respected the CROSSMARK organization. The people at all levels have consistently demonstrated leadership, collaboration and excellence in driving our industry forward,” Mac Naughton said. “I’m excited to work with the team in helping the company increase shareholder value by driving continued growth for its clients and customers.”

Mac Naughton left Walmart last November after overseeing all merchandise categories across more than 3,700 stores in the U.S. Under his leadership, the company intensified its shopper-centric focus through initiatives that improved on-shelf availability of products, as well as a more collaborative joint business planning process with suppliers.

“His insight and expertise will be highly valued as we continue to drive innovation and build unique capabilities centered around consumer purchase behavior, enabling us to deliver smarter solutions for our clients and customers to grow their businesses faster,” Schuckenbrock said. “I look forward to having Duncan join our collaborative team as we continue on our path toward growth.”

Prior to Walmart, Mac Naughton served as executive vice president of marketing and merchandising at Supervalu. He also held executive roles at Albertons and HEB Grocery Company. Prior to HEB, he spent 13 years with Kraft Foods.
