Wolters Kluwer, the Dutch technology firm, has formally announced the appointment of three divisional CEOs that the company says will set the stage for accelerated growth. The appointed CEOs are: Karen Abramson, formerly CEO of Tax & Accounting, who becomes the CEO of the new Corporate Performance & ESG (CP & ESG) division; Jason Marx, formerly leading North America Tax & Accounting, who becomes the new CEO of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting and Steve Meirink, formerly leading Compliance Solutions, who is the new CEO of Wolters Kluwer Financial & Corporate Compliance.
The appointments follow Wolters Kluwer’s strategic decision, announced in February of this yea, to create a 5th division, Corporate Performance & ESG (CP & ESG) which has “been established to meet the growing demand from corporations and banks for integrated financial, operational, and ESG performance management and reporting solutions.”
“Environmental, Social and Governance is one of the areas in which our clients are seeking more robust solutions and insights,” said Nancy McKinstry, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Executive Board of Wolters Kluwer. “Our ESG products help our clients mitigate risk, comply with an ever-changing regulatory environment, and advance their ability to be more responsible corporate citizens. By bringing these solutions into one division, we will be able to capitalize on the growth opportunities in this fast-growing space and meet the growing demands of our customers for ESG solutions.”
CP & ESG brings together Wolters Kluwer’s global software businesses that focus on corporate performance management, environmental health and safety (EHS), and risk: (CCH Tagetik, Enablon, FRR, and TeamMate). By leveraging the natural synergy that exists across these businesses, the company will be able to better serve its customers and drive accelerated growth by extending and integrating its current product portfolio.
