CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, announced that Bob Dias has been named vice president of product and segment management.

In the new position, Dias will provide overall leadership for CCH’s product management and market segment organizations in serving tax and accounting professionals as a strategic partner.

“Throughout his career, Bob has championed the importance of focusing on customers and serving them best by first and foremost understanding their needs,” said CCH president Mike Sabbatis, in a statement. “As a customer-focused organization, CCH will benefit even further from Bob’s insight and leadership in his new role on the executive team.”

Dias joined CCH in 1979 and most recently served as CCH director of segment management. He has also led global customer-focused initiatives for the Wolters Kluwer Tax, Accounting & Legal division.  He is a resident of Hermosa Beach, Calif.

Separately, last month, Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting announced that it has named Paul Tennola as vice president of business development.

Tennola will focus on the continued implementation of Wolters Kluwer’s strategic plans by finding new market opportunities and managing business development activities throughout WK TAA’s four businesses -- CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business; CCH Asia Pacific; CCH Small Firm Services; and CCH Canadian.

Tennola will report to the larger business’s chief executive, Kevin Robert. Tennola has 19 years experience in business development, merger and acquisitions, finance and strategic planning. Prior to joining WK TAA, he served as business development group vice president for SunGard Data Systems, where he was responsible for directing all partnership and merger and acquisition activities.
