Walmart Inc. is losing its global chief ethics and compliance officer.

Daniel Trujillo's last day with the company is Friday, Walmart chief legal officer Rachel Brand said in a memo. She did not say why he is leaving or who will replace him.

Brand said Trujillo has worked for the Bentonville-based retailer since 2012, starting as senior vice president and chief international compliance officer.

Trujillo was promoted to his current position in February 2019 after the departure of his predecessor, Jay Jorgensen. They were hired within a month of each other shortly after the start of a federal investigation into allegations of bribery at Walmart's Mexican operations and of a cover-up by company executives.

The New York Times brought the allegations to light with a report published in April 2012. The U.S. Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission began their investigation that October.

As part of the retailer's settlement with the agencies in 2019, Trujillo supported the independent compliance monitor assigned to assess Walmart's anti-corruption program and controls.
