Walmart GoLocal, the retailer’s delivery service platform, is adding industry veteran Rina Hurst to its c-suite. As VP, Hurst will be responsible for the strategic direction, operations and general management of Walmart GoLocal while focusing on scaling the business and expanding its capabilities.

Over the past two years, Walmart GoLocal has grown to serve third-party retailers across more than a dozen industries, and has enabled millions of deliveries for retailers across more than 18,000 U.S. zip codes.

“Rina brings extensive last-mile and delivery expertise and a track record of building strategic partnerships and accelerating growth. I’m thrilled to welcome Rina to the Walmart team and see the impact she will have on Walmart GoLocal as we grow and optimize our capabilities for our clients,” said Jennifer McKeehan, SVP, end-to-end delivery, Walmart U.S. “Rina’s expertise in retail delivery will be a strong complement to the team as we continue to innovate and expand how we serve leading retailers with delivery.”

Hurst comes to Walmart GoLocal from Shipt, where she led strategic retail, brand and innovation partnerships, and worked toward optimizing order volume, expanding the company’s delivery footprint.

Continued Hurst: “I cannot wait to begin meeting with the team and leading the next chapter for Walmart GoLocal – one filled with growth, success and excitement for us and our clients.”
