- Walmart Inc. has replaced the head of Jetblack, a personal-shopping service for upscale urbanites, a widely expected move that could presage a spinoff of the unprofitable venture. Jenny Fleiss, who has run Jetblack since its launch a year ago, is taking a new advisory role reporting to Janey Whiteside, Walmart’s chief customer officer. Nate Faust, a senior vice president of logistics for the company’s online arm who had been working on the Jetblack business over the past few months, will take over. Reporting from Matthew Boyle.
