Wal-Mart said it is adding Horton as its 16th member of its board of directors and he will also serve on the company's audit committee.

"I've long admired Walmart’s values and its successful record of improving people’s lives around the world," Horton said in a statement. "Walmart has a strong leadership team backed by a solid business plan and is building new and innovative ways to serve customers."

Horton, 53, became chief executive of American on the day it filed for bankruptcy in November 2011. He stepped down from that role when American merged with US Airways in December. He remained chairman of American until June 3.
