Valdez, who will join the company on March 28, will report to Target executive vice president and chief operating officer John Mulligan.

Valdez, who spent the last 16 years with Amazon, is described as a seasoned supply chain leader with extensive experience in both direct-to-consumer and direct-to-store operations. At Amazon he held leadership positions across the company’s global and domestic supply chain, including transportation, fulfilment and logistics. Most recently he was Amazon’s vice president of operations, focused on the company’s international supply chain expansion. Valdez previously held positions with Walmart and Kmart.

“While we’ve made significant progress in improving our operations, Target’s growth hinges on our ability to enhance the fundamental aspects of our business, starting with the supply chain,” says Mulligan. “Arthur’s leadership and experience will be a tremendous asset as we continue to drive improvements in end-to-end processes including leveraging our almost 1,800 stores to deliver a seamless experience for our guests.”
