One trillion dollars in stock market value. That’s what just the 27 CEOs on the Fortune Most Powerful Women list control. But there are 24 more women on our 18th annual list.
As CEO and President of Sam’s Club, Rosalind Brewer, C’84, chair of the Spelman College Board of Trustees, ranks No. 15 on the list of 50 influential thought leaders.
Roz is a strong advocate for Sam’s Club’s many small business members and is also focused on e-commerce growth, giving members the convenience of shopping anywhere, anytime.
Before joining Walmart, she worked for Kimberly-Clark Corp. for 22 years, starting as a scientist and eventually becoming president of the Global Nonwovens Sector in 2004.
