The CODiETM awards recognize outstanding company teams, individuals, and leadership for their commitment to the software and digital content industries.
For several years now, Karen Abramson has launched award-winning products and driven technology and innovation forward across the Wolters Kluwer organization. “I am quite honored to receive this prestigious award, which is really a recognition of the entire team at Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting. I am quite fortunate to have a highly motivated innovative team that inspires me and works tirelessly for our clients every day,” Karen Abramson, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting CEO.
Abramson says the key to success is understanding the nexus between operation, strategy, and teamwork. “We have been able to consistently launch groundbreaking products geared toward accountants and financial experts because of our relentless drive to understand customer wants and needs, as well as predicting what they will need tomorrow. It would not be possible without the efforts of our entire global tax and accounting team consistently working together as a cohesive group,” said Abramson.
