2 Wal-Mart 2009 Annual Report I’m fortunate to have assumed my new role as president and chief executive officer at this time in Wal-Mart’s history. Our Company is so well positioned for today’s diF cult economy and tomorrow’s changing world. We have an exceptionally strong management team, able to execute our strategy, perform every single day, and deliver results. This success is a tribute to the hard work of many people, but especially Lee Scott. We appreciate Lee for his ser- vice and outstanding leadership of our Company. At Wal-Mart, we’re very pleased with last year’s annual performance, espe- cially relative to competitors. Our U.S. stores are delivering faster checkouts, a friendlier shopping experience and cleaner presentations. Simply, they are just operating better. We are on the move internationally and today have more stores in more markets.
