An experienced business leader, Hague brings more than 15 years of senior management from the SME and corporate sectors. He joins Wolters Kluwer from NCC Group where he headed the assurance testing division, significantly increasing its revenue and profit in his four years' tenure at the company.

Hague will report directly to the CEO of Wolters Kluwer UK, Cathy Wolfe. Wolfe says: "We have reached an important turning point in Croner's business strategy. It is being transformed into a digital-era business focused on services that combine indispensable business information and consultancy, with technology at its core. Andy Hague's experience of managing software and services businesses will help us to achieve our ambitious growth plans." Andy Hague says: "Wolters Kluwer's recent launch of the Croner Simplify service is proving to be a very attractive concept for small and medium-sized companies by integrating HR and business compliance information and consultancy. Unique services for other sectors will follow and this is an exciting period in Croner's development."
