Congratulations to Helen Milford, Vice President of Retail in the South, who has been selected to join the President’s Global Council of Women Leaders (PGCWL).
Helen Milford

The PGCWL was formed in 2009 by Mike Duke, former Walmart CEO, and is comprised of senior women leaders across Walmart who are trusted advisors to our leadership team. They are also catalysts for change and champions for women across the globe.

Helen was one of six to be asked to join the PGCWL – who were selected for exhibiting strong leadership, high performance standards and for being cultural ambassadors. They also serve as role models to women both inside and outside of Walmart.

Helen said: “It’s a real honour to be selected to join the PGCWL. Developing women leaders is such an important initiative for Asda and Walmart and this is a real opportunity to lift others to success and have even more of an impact on careers and opportunities of women both inside and outside of our company.”

Congratulations Helen!
