Earlier this month, Lore went after ecommerce company ShoeBuy, acquiring it from IAC for $70 million. Then he revealed a new leadership team for Walmart’s ecommerce division; Walmart executives Michael Bender and Neil Ashe are leaving while several Jet.com employees and a handful of Walmart executives were given new roles, according to CNBC.
This week, Lore announced 200 layoffs in the ecommerce division, according to an internal memo obtained by Fortune. Lore notified employees of the layoffs on Tuesday.
