Brewer, 49, was most recently president of Wal-Mart’s U.S. east business unit and was responsible for more than $100 billion in annual revenue, representing almost 1,600 stores and more than 500,000 associates. Brewer was also the first chairperson of the Wal-Mart President’s Council of Global Women Leaders. In 2010, she was named to Black Enterprise’s “75 Most Powerful Women In Business” list.

Prior to joining Wal-Mart, Brewer worked for Kimberly-Clark Corp., advancing through various positions before becoming president of a key business sector in 2004. She joined Wal-Mart in 2006 as regional vice president overseeing operations in Georgia. She holds a board director seat at Lockheed Martin and serves as chair of the Board of Trustees at her alma mater, Spelman College.

Sam’s Club, with 610 stores and $49 billion in fiscal 2011 sales, is a smaller business than the Walmart division Brewer previously ran. Sam’s Club business has outperformed its namesake stores, and its same-store sales gained 5.7% in the quarter ending October, compared with a 1.3 percent increase for Walmart locations.
