Riverwoods, Ill. (Jan. 14, 2003) -- Rebecca Hensley has resigned her position as president of CCH, the publisher of accounting industry software and research materials. Gene Landoe, current CCH Legal Information Services president and a CCH veteran, will serve as the interim chief executive.Hensley, who began her career at Washington-based Bureau of National Affairs, joined CCH in 1994 as director of the CCH Editorial Resource Center. She later became publisher of CCH's Federal and State Tax unit, which includes the CCH flagship Standard Federal Tax Reporter and the CCH Federal Tax Service. She was named president of CCH in July 1999.

In a memo to employees, Hensley cited family responsibilities as a major factor in reaching her decision. "Balancing work and family is something we all have to take responsibility for, and after a personal analysis, I am choosing to move some of my energies from one side to the other." However, she joked, "United Airlines' decision to stop serving Diet Coke was the last straw."

CCH, founded in 1913 as a tax and business publisher, is the largest operating unit of Wolters Kluwer, the Amsterdam-based multinational information services company.
