NEW YORK, NY, Jan 20 (Reuters) – Walmart’s top e-commerce executive Casey Carl (WMT.N) will leave the company at the end of February after nearly two years, the company said in an internal memo.

Carl will be replaced by Tom Ward, senior vice president of last mile deliveries at Walmart. Ward’s new title will be executive vice president and chief e-commerce officer beginning Feb. 1.

Carl is the latest executive to leave the company. Last week, Scott McCall, Walmart’s director of merchandising for its US unit, announced his retirement and was replaced by grocery store chief Charles Redfield. Brett Biggs, former CFO of Walmart, left the company in late November.

Carl, Chief Omni Strategy and eCommerce Officer, led Walmart’s omnichannel e-commerce efforts, which include Grocery Delivery, Walmart+, Marketplace and Walmart’s incubator arm, Store Nº8.

“Casey has been a passionate advocate for our sellers and has led the work of defining and implementing our seller value proposition, which has resulted in strong growth in our third-party marketplace and Walmart’s fulfillment services” , Walmart U.S. chief executive John Furner said in the memo. “I have appreciated Casey’s contributions to Walmart’s business in the United States.”

The incubator will now report to Jennifer Jackson, senior vice president of corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions and strategic partnerships.

Carl is also a 20-year veteran of Target (TGT.N). During his time at the big box retailer, he led Target’s innovation strategy to create new business models and platforms. He also led the company’s omnichannel and Target.com.

E-commerce has been a priority for Walmart. Earlier this month, the company announced it would expand its e-commerce offering with InHome, a grocery delivery service that allows drivers to drive into customers’ homes.
