Musab Balbale, vice president and general manager of beauty at Walmart is leaving the company.

He will be joining CVS Health as senior vice president and chief merchant at the end of the month, a company spokesperson said.

On his LinkedIn post Balbale made the announcement. He stated, “After nearly 6 incredible years, I am leaving Walmart. I am immensely grateful for all the opportunities these years have provided me. From the infectious energy of Marc Lore at Jet.com to the scale and ambition of Walmart eCommerce; from a single digital eCommerce channel to the complexities of integrated omni-retail — I have been privileged to work alongside passionate, driven and smart retail disrupters."

Balbale has held the role of vice president at Jet.com. He also held the position of vice president of international and new business development at The Vitamin Shoppe.

Balbale continued on his post, "For any of you that have the opportunity to work for Steve Breen, Kieran Shanahan or Latriece Watkins — take it! I promise you they will make you better.

"These last two years, supporting Walmart's Omni beauty business, have been particularly thrilling. I am proud of the speed with which the Walmart beauty team is transforming the business — and in turn shifting the narrative of Walmart Beauty. I have no doubt that they will continue their ambitious trajectory and I will be celebrating their success from a far.

Balbale concluded, "While I am excited for the next adventure (more on that soon!) I do want to take this moment to say thank you to the colleagues and friends that have made this chapter so rewarding."
