Mark CarbonelliMark Carbonelli
Vice-President, HR Services


Carbonelli describes himself as a “results-oriented leader” and “business strategist,” embodying the traits that are increasingly required in high-level HR. He joined Walmart in 2010, after cutting his VP teeth in some of Canada’s top retail companies, including Canadian Tire and Shoppers Drug Mart. Since Carbonelli joined the international retail giant, Walmart has increased from 325 stores to 389 stores in Canada and recently announced it expected to open another six stores in Canada this year, growth that will result in 7,500 jobs created in a range of industries. Increased competition as Target further pushes into the Canadian space will further challenge Carbonelli and Walmart’s ability to source and retain the best employees, increasing the need for a strong talent strategy.
