South Korean e-commerce company Coupang said Friday that it has tapped a former vice president at Walmart as its new chief compliance officer and general counsel. 

Based on his legal expertise, Jay Jorgensen had served as Walmart’s vice president and CCO for seven years since 2012.

“As ethics and transparency have become significant values, I will do my best so that Coupang becomes the most trusted company.”
