The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce said Monday that Daniel Trujillo, executive vice president and chief ethics and compliance officer at Walmart Inc., will speak at its annual “State of the Chamber” luncheon on March 1.
The chamber said Trujillo will “discuss the transformational initiatives underway at the company’s headquarters around alternative transportation commuting to its ‘Campus of the Future.'”
The Bentonville retailer announced in 2017 plans to build a new headquarters there, consolidating operations now spread among 20 buildings across town, including a main building at 702 SW 8th St. The new complex, expected to take shape in phases over five to seven years, will support 14,000-17,000 employees.
Also part of the program: legendary record company executive Al Bell, who led Stax Records and Motown Records Group; and Stace Treat, interpretation manager in the exhibitions department at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Antony Ball with Smoothman Music Productions will lead a nine-piece band.
“You can expect to see art, music, cycling and the makers-movement represented over the course of the program,” Chamber President and CEO Graham Cobb said. “We want to bring everyone into the many classrooms in which we were fortunate to have a seat in 2018 and continue to embrace and celebrate our dynamic and diverse community and economy.”
The event is from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 1, at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers. Tickets can be purchased at GreaterBentonville.com.
