Greg Foran, who headed Walmart’s Asia division, replaces Bill Simon as head of Walmart’s U.S. operation. U.S. sales account for 60 percent of the retail giant’s revenues.

The tree covers 156,000 square feet, making it larger than the average Indian Walmart (105,000 square feet) Foran oversaw.

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim recently offered India up to $18 billion in financial support to revive that country’s sluggish economy.

Not sluggish is the country’s burgeoning beef industry. Famous for its veneration of the cow, India was the world’s largest beef exporter in 2012 and 2013.

Burger King doubled its income in the first quarter. New CEO Daniel Schwartz eliminated executive perks and learned the business from the ground up, i.e. cleaning toilets in franchise stores.

Youth serves at BK. Schwartz is 33. CFO Josh Kobza is only 28 and Sami Siddiqui, head of investor relations, is 29.

Schwartz will be the second youngest CEO on the Fortune 1000 list, behind Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. The average age of an incoming CEO is 53.

Walmart’s Greg Foran is 53.
