Wolters Kluwerappoints divisional CEOs, creates fifth division
dedicated to Corporate Performance and ESG
Alphen aan den Rijn — March 6, 2023 —Wolters Kluwer, a leading software solutions and services provider, announced today three divisional CEO appointments that will set the stage for accelerated growth at the company.
- Karen Abramson, formerly CEO of Tax & Accounting, is now the CEO of the new Corporate Performance & ESG (CP & ESG) division.
- Jason Marx, formerly leading North America Tax & Accounting, is the new CEO of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting.
- Steve Meirink, formerly leading Compliance Solutions, is the new CEO of Wolters Kluwer Financial & Corporate Compliance.
The appointments follow Wolters Kluwer’s strategic decision announced in February of this year to create a 5th division, Corporate Performance & ESG (CP & ESG). CP & ESG has been established to meet the growing demand from corporations and banks for integrated financial, operational, and ESG performance management and reporting 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.
“Environmental, Social and Governance is one of the areas in which our clients are seeking more robust solutions and insights,” says 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.”
Last year, Richard Flynn, then CEO of Governance, Risk & Compliance division (which has now become Financial & Corporate Compliance), informed us of his plans to pursue new experiences outside Wolters Kluwer. Under Richard's leadership, the GRC division drove successful innovation and operational synergies that solidified GRC as a leader in the financial and compliance markets, while fostering a deeply engaged workforce.
“I am excited to be working with all of our CEOs and the wider leadership team during this period of significant growth for Wolters Kluwer,” McKinstry added. “I would also like to congratulate Karen, Jason and Steve on their well-deserved appointments, and thank Richard for his many contributions to Wolters Kluwer.”

Medium-term Fiscal Strategy Plan 2024-2028: to counter inflation, safeguard living standards and support growth29.3.2023 20:11:00 CEST | Press release
The government's fiscal strategy plan for the next five years lays out its strategy to utilise fiscal policy in a targeted manner to counter inflation and overheating by increasing expenditure restraint and revenue generation and postponing public investments. At the same time, important basic services that the government has significantly reinforced in recent years are maintained, based on the strong position of the Treasury. Financial support will be provided for those groups least able to withstand the impact of rising inflation, as was done with the government's support actions during the pandemic and the previous year. The Treasury’s fiscal position has improved significantly in recent quarters , and the fiscal outlook for this year appears likely to be better than implied by the most optimistic scenarios of previous projections. Eighteen months ago, the objective was set in the government’s Fiscal policy statement to halt the increase in debt to GDP ratio no later than by year-en
