Jay Jorgensen, the global chief ethics and compliance officer at Walmart, is leaving the company Jan. 31 to pursue other opportunities, according to an internal company memo sent to employees by Chief Legal Officer Rachel Brand.
Daniel Trujillo, Walmart’s senior vice president and international chief compliance officer, will replace Jorgensen.
Jorgensen, a former partner at Sidley Austin, joined Walmart in 2012, shortly after the retail company faced allegations of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). In Jorgensen’s time as global chief ethics and compliance officer, the company established a centralized compliance team in every international market. During his keynote at the Compliance Week 2014 conference in Washington D.C., Jorgensen provided detailed insight into his first year-and-a-half as Walmart's global chief compliance officer.
Trujillo, who also joined the company in 2012, was the former deputy general counsel and director of compliance at Houston-based oilfield services company Schlumberger Ltd.
