Walmart exec joins women’s board
The Network of Executive Women (NEW) just added a current Walmart executive to its board.
According to Retail Leader’s sister brand, Progressive Grocer, Andy Dunn, the Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer's SVP of digital consumer brands and the founder of apparel brand Bonobos, has been named director at large by the organization. He co-founded Bonobos in 2007 and joined Walmart upon its acquisition of the brand in 2017, where he now oversees Bonobos, ModCloth, Allswell and an emerging portfolio of incubated and acquired digitally native vertical brands.
"NEW is thrilled – and fortunate – to welcome Andy as a board member and male ally in our work to reach gender equality in the workplace," said NEW President and Chief Executive Officer Sarah Alter. "Without committed male allies and the support of leaders in the C-suite, there will be no gender equality."
Dunn is the founding board chairman of Interior Define; Monica + Andy, an online retailer for mothers and babies founded by his sister, Monica; and the public education social enterprise Blue Engine. He sits on the board of RaisedBy.Us, an employee giving platform for entrepreneurial companies.
One of the country's largest online grocers, Walmart also operates more than 11,200 stores under 55 banners in 27 countries. The Bentonville, Ark.-based company is No. 1 on Progressive Grocer's list of the top grocers in the United States.
