The U.K.-based Law & Business unit will, for the interim period, report to Mr. Kevin Robert, CEO of Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting.

Ms. Caywood is a seasoned leader with a 16-year track record of success at CCH and Wolters Kluwer where she has led strategic planning, publishing, sales, marketing, and new product development.
