CCH Executives Mackintosh And Mortenson Honored As Most Powerful Women In Accounting





RIVERWOODS, Ill., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CCH's Executive Vice President & General Manager of Tax Teresa Mackintosh, CPA and Director of Electronic Publishing Development Tracy Mortenson, CPA, JD, have been recognized nationally as among the most powerful women in the accounting profession by the American Society of Women Accountants and The CPA Practice Advisor. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business is a leading global provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services ( CCHGroup.com).

The "Most Powerful Women in Accounting" recognizes 25 women who are making the greatest impact on the tax and accounting profession. An independent panel of accounting professionals selected the finalists based on their contributions to the accounting profession; initiatives and actions they have started that made a difference within their organization; their personal leadership; community involvement; and mentorship of future women leaders. Both Mackintosh and Mortenson have worked in the profession for their entire careers – first as practitioners, and then in serving the profession.

"I congratulate all of the women who were recognized with this award, and I'm thrilled that two CCH leaders received the honor," said Karen Abramson, CCH President & CEO. "At CCH, our commitment is to make our customers lives better, and both Teresa and Tracy are absolutely dedicated to achieving this as they drive information and technology solutions to help our customers advance. We're proud to have them on our team."

Mackintosh heads the company's largest business unit, serving tax professionals with innovative, customer-focused solutions – including new cloud and mobile solutions. She leads tax product development, tax technology, product management and sales operations. Mortenson leads electronic publishing development for CCH. She has been a driving force behind the powerful IntelliConnect ® research platform and the popular new CCH Mobile, supporting the way professionals want to work today, with access to information and tools anywhere, anytime.

The first annual awards were presented at the 2012 American Society of Women Accountants Conference in San Diego and are currently featured in the November issue of The CPA Practice Advisor, which includes profiles and interviews with all of the winners, including CCH's Mackintosh and Mortenson.
