Walmart welcomes John Rainey as their new Chief Financial Officer as he waves goodbye to PayPal after around 7 years.

John has a proven track record of leading change at scale in customer service organizations innovating in their fields, I’m confident that John’s mix of financial and digital acumen, coupled with his experience leading finance in complex, highly competitive industries, will help us deliver for our customers and shareholders as we continue to transform our company.

– Doug McMillon, Walmart President and Chief Executive Officer

Rainey joins Walmart from PayPal where he currently serves as the company’s CFO and Executive Vice President, Global Customer Operations. In this role, Rainey is responsible for all of PayPal’s financial operations. He also leads the company’s Global Customer Operations team, guiding PayPal’s efforts to deliver great service experiences through its customer operations centers around the world. Prior to PayPal, Rainey was Executive Vice President and CFO at United Airlines, one of the world’s largest airlines, and spent a combined 18 years between United and Continental Airlines. He began his professional career at Ernst & Young LLP.

I’m excited and humbled to join such an iconic company at a time when the retail industry continues its transformation, I’ve closely watched Walmart’s transition to an omnichannel company, and I can’t wait to join the management team and our 2.3 million associates to continue to help people around the world save money and live better.

– John Rainey, upcoming CFO, Walmart

The company previously announced that Brett Biggs, who currently serves as CFO, would be leaving to begin a new chapter of opportunities in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. Biggs will support the transition to Rainey over the coming months, remaining in the CFO role until June 6, 2022, and then serve as an advisor until he leaves the company on Jan. 31, 2023. As part of the transition, he will also continue representing the company as a board member on Walmart’s FinTech startup joint venture with Ribbit Capital.
