Wal-Mart today named Linda Dillman as its new CIO. Dillman had been VP of international systems development. She replaces Kevin Turner, who was tapped to replace Tom Grimm, president and CEO of the discount retailer's struggling Sam's Club wholesale division, who's retiring. Turner will report to Tom Coughlin, president and CEO of Wal-Mart, who will take on the additional title of president and CEO of Sam's Club USA.

Dillman, 46, joined Wal-Mart in 1991 and has had leadership roles, according to a statement from the company, on application development projects for Wal-Mart's in-store systems, its Retail Link supply-chain system, and its data warehouse, among others. Turner, 37, who started at Wal-Mart as an hourly employee, had been CIO since 2000, when he replaced Randy Mott, who left to become CIO of Dell Computer.
