Fast Company’s Danielle Sacks has just knocked out an extensive profile of Julie Roehm, the “Scarlet Woman of Bentonville” whose star turn at Chrysler was subsequently tarnished by her scandal-ridden, lightning-quick tenure at Wal-Mart.

Sacks takes a looksee into Roehm’s life a couple of years after the alleged shady dealings with agencies and love affair with a subordinate led to her downfall at the corporate mega-chain.
