Jeremy King, Walmart Inc.'s chief technology officer, is leaving the company for "a new adventure," the retailer said Wednesday. King's last day there will be March 29. Since joining Walmart in 2011, King has helped the Bentonville retailer overhaul its e-commerce business to better compete against Amazon.com and other rivals. At the recent SXSW technology conference in Austin, Texas, King said he wanted Walmart to be seen as a tech company as well as a retailer.
