Leslie Dach: Power List 2011

EVP, Corporate Affairs and Government Relations, Wal-mart

Walmart's head of corporate affairs and government relations spent the year cozying up to Michelle Obama for a nutrition charter initiative that launched in January in collaboration with the first lady's "Let's Move!" campaign. It was an association that worked well for both partners and helped position Walmart as a thought-leader in the race to fill the food-labeling vacuum left by the FDA, which has still not issued its own regulations. As Leslie Dach approaches the fifth anniversary of his leaving former home Edelman to join Walmart, the combination of the world's largest retailer and the world's most powerful spouse propelled him to the top of PRWeek's Power List for the first time.
