BENTONVILLE, Ark. - Veteran finance executive Charles Holley was named to replace Tom Schoewe as CFO of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the company announced late Wednesday. Holley joined Walmart in 1994 and most recently served as EVP finance and treasurer. Schoewe joined Walmart in 2000 as CFO.

The change will take effect on Nov. 30, and Schoewe will remain with the company until Jan. 31, 2011.
