Wal-Mart Shuffles RFID Management Team

PRESS RELEASE

Wal-Mart isn't abandoning RFID technology, but Linda Dillmon, the force behind Wal-Mart's initial RFID mandates, is leaving her position as executive VP and chief information officer to oversee risk management and benefits administration for the retailer. Under Dillmon, Wal-Mart required its top 100 vendors to start shipping cases and pallets with RFID tags to its distribution centers in January 2005. That mandate later was extended to Wal-Mart's next 200 largest suppliers, many of which began shipping RFID-tagged products at the start of this year.
