Wal-Mart Stores Inc., announced Monday the appointment of Carmen Kingston as general manager for the district of Puerto Rico, responsible for the 11 Sam’s Club membership stores on the island.

“We’re confident that Carmen will successfully run Sam’s Club operations in Puerto Rico and will take the business to the next level to continue our commitment and our mission to provide our partners with unique products and quality, while supporting small and medium businesses with quality products and very low prices, which are essential for the success of their businesses,” said Kidd.
