Wal-Mart's Fish retires
May 29, 2003,
Bentonville, AR — Dick Fish, Wal-Mart's vp, gmm, domestics, since 1997, has retired as of today, a spokesperson for the company said.
A search is under way to replace him.
However, because of such factors as not spending enough time with his family, he decided to do something different. "But I don't know what different is yet ... I'm fielding a lot of phone calls from a lot of people."
Before joining the retailing giant and breaking into domestics, Fish spent his entire career in apparel, with 25 years at Montgomery Ward before moving to Corral West Ranchwear, a Western apparel specialty chain, in 1994.
