Sonia Syngal joined the leaders of Walmart, Lowe’s and JPMorgan Chase and the head of the US Chamber of Commerce at the White House on Tuesday as the president seeks support for his $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill.
Expected topics of discussion included Biden’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $15, a move Walmart’s chief executive has said would be too sudden. The administration already said any increases would go into effect after the pandemic.
Syngal took the top job at Gap Inc. in March 2020. She was previously the head of subsidiary Old Navy since 2016.
