Walmart’s tech lab, Store No. 8, has hired Scott Eckert to lead the startup incubator:
“Eckert, a former executive of Bain Capital Ventures, will take over from Lori Flees, who ran Store No. 8, in addition to working as senior vice president of health and wellness at Walmart-owned Sam’s Club, according to a memo sent by retailer’s head of U.S. e-commerce, Marc Lore, to its employees on Monday, a copy of which was seen by Reuters.”
