Walmart’s International Supplier of the Year award is determined by several key performance indicators that measure variables such as sales performance, inventory metrics and delivery rates. Kimberly-Clark significantly outperformed on almost every indicator and was the only supplier selected for the achievement.
“This award recognizes the strategic alignment of our teams with Walmart around the world,” said John Scholes, vice president, Walmart International Development at Kimberly-Clark. “This global award was earned for achieving business goals over a sustained period, and every country played their part. It was a real team effort, and we are delighted to be recognized for our efforts.” Mr. Scholes and Steve Jones, Walmart International Business Manager at Kimberly-Clark, received the award on behalf of the company.
This is the second award Kimberly-Clark has received from Walmart in 2010. Kimberly-Clark Brazil was also honored with Walmart Brazil’s “Sustainability Award” for providing the retailer a 100 percent recycled bath tissue under the leading brand Neve Naturali.
