Appointment Reflects CLS’s Commitment to Accelerate Growth Across Its Group of Businesses
NEW YORK, May 17, 2012 – Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services (CLS), the leader in legal process and business performance management, today announced that John Weber has been promoted to executive vice president and general manager to lead the group’s CT Corporation-branded business. The business line is dedicated to delivering compliance and governance solutions to Fortune 500 companies and large law firms.
A legal services industry veteran, Weber spent the past 11 years leading another CLS business, TyMetrix, the global leader in intelligent solutions to manage the business of law. His proven ability to create new products and services that have the power to transform an industry — and fuel business growth — presents an excellent opportunity for another business line in the CLS portfolio. This appointment underscores CLS’s commitment to accelerate its growth and innovate on behalf of its clients across its group of businesses.
During Weber’s tenure, TyMetrix was twice named to Deloitte & Touche's Fast 500 in North America (list of the fastest-growing technology companies). Weber envisioned TyMetrix's flagship product, TyMetrix 360°, the industry's leading unified solution for e-billing and matter management, and paved the way for TyMetrix Legal Analytics, a complementary business to TyMetrix's core software offerings that provides predictive and analytical models, benchmarking, and insights to all corporate and law firm legal professionals.
“John is a terrific leader and innovator. He has been an integral part of TyMetrix’s success,” said Richard Flynn, group president and CEO of Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services. “John has assembled a world-class management team and together they have done a tremendous job positioning TyMetrix as the industry’s go-to choice. I am excited to see us continue to earn that position with some great things planned in the pipeline — things I know will delight our customers. I am also excited to see John bring his passion for the industry, training as a practicing attorney and unique insights to now create the next wave of product innovation for our compliance and governance customers.”
“It’s been an honor to lead and help grow TyMetrix into the business it is today. I am excited to approach my new role with that same passion,” Weber said. “TyMetrix has a clear path forward with an excellent leadership team at its helm. I look forward to leveraging yet another set of internal experts to create innovative products and solutions that build on the respected CT Corporation brand, and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
