Walmart India has roped in former CEO of Future Consumer, Devendra Chawla, as its Chief Operating Officer, according to media reports.

Chawla, who had last week quit from Future Consumer, a part of Kishore Biyani-led Future Group, will join as COO Merchandising, Marketing and Omni-channel function at Walmart India. He will report to Walmart India CEO KrishIyer. A formal announcement of his appointment is expected soon.

The company is expected to leverage on Chawla’s expertise in food retail as it looks to scale up its retailer development model ‘Mera Kirana Programme’ to enable small kiranas serve their customers better.

Walmart India owns and operates 21 best price modern wholesale stores in nine states across India.

Chawla had joined Future Group in January 2009 as the CEO for its private brands business. He had previously worked at Reliance Retail Ltd, Coca-Cola and Asian Paints.
