CCH signs ex-KPMG, Thomson Reuters Tax and Accounting Solutions ‘guru’
Sydney, Australia (5 March, 2012) — CCH Australia & New Zealand has upped the ante in the Corporate Tax and Accounting Solutions sector with the appointment of Tony Katsigarakis to the role of Regional Director - Client Development with CCH’s Corporate Tax Solutions (CTS) team.

Being a renowned industry name responsible for implementing and integrating tax-based technology and workflow solutions within Corporates, Government and Professional Firms for over 20 years, Katsigarakis brings an immense depth of technical tax solution expertise to CCH. He is a seasoned specialist that will spearhead the CTS sales team in pursuing large opportunities and support the software sales and implementation process, in conjunction with CCH’s expanding Partner community.

“Our clients and our staff are the heart and soul of our business and exceptional client service is a matter that is close to my heart. I look forward to meeting and working with our clients and my new colleagues to not only better understand CCH and the CTS offerings, but to understand how we can best serve and delight our customers, and in so doing delight our staff in a job well done,” Katsigarakis said. 

His career includes over 15 years at KPMG as Head of Tax Management Technology Group and 5 years with Thomson Reuters as ANZ Client Services Director. Before these engagements, he was Sales & Marketing Director, Client Services Director and then Transitional CEO of Allume Technology Partners, a tax technology company specialised in providing technology solutions in tax compliance and management, prior to its acquisition by Thomson Reuters in April 2008.
CCH Australia & New Zealand is a Wolters Kluwer business, and forms part of Wolters Kluwer Asia Pacific. CEO Wolters Kluwer Asia Pacific, Russell Evans, explained that this is a very exciting development in the growth of CCH’s CTS business.
“Being one of a handful of true ‘Tax Technologists’ in the country, Tony possesses a unique combination of skills and combines his understanding and knowledge of taxation, law, accounting, and information technology together with extensive experience in tax process re-engineering and workflow to address complex issues and undertake projects involving the application of technology and process to the tax environment,” said Evans. 
“I know Tony will complement our high-performing CTS team and his timely arrival complements CCH’s focus on customer segments to better serve the needs of different customers. Corporate Tax is a segment on which CCH and our CTS business are sharply focused and CCH supports customers with a number of complementary, value-add initiatives as part of our commitment to drive greater customer delight.”

One of the most recent initiatives to improve the lives of Corporate Tax Professionals is CCH’s popular Corporate Tax Managers Network member events. Evans said “Open to CCH customers, the purpose of these Network member events is to create a quarterly forum ‘designed by corporate tax managers, for corporate tax managers’. It’s a great way to get everybody together over lunch to hear keynote presenters and discuss crucial tax matters. It’s CCH’s way of helping our Corporate Tax leaders stay connected and current.”
