Maria Montenegro is the Senior Vice President of Strategy & Innovation for Wolters Kluwer. Her portfolio spans Corporate Strategy, North America Mergers & Acquisitions, Global Separations and Integrations, and a Sales Transformation Center of Excellence. Before joining Wolters Kluwer in early 2022, Maria spent nearly a decade at McKinsey & Company where she served some of the largest corporations in the world on Corporate Strategy, M&A, and technology transformation topics, including building digital businesses for her clients. Previously, she spent time as an investment banker at Morgan Stanley supporting Financial Sponsors, and as an entrepreneur building eCommerce businesses with Rocket Internet.

A big believer that teamwork makes the dream work, Maria’s leadership style has allowed her to build bridges and develop a shared vision for Wolters Kluwer’s Corporate Performance and ESG strategy. This has led to the creation of a new division in 2023, bringing together four of Wolters Kluwer’s global enterprise software businesses to serve the growing demand from corporations and banks for integrated financial, operational and ESG performance management and reporting solutions.

She holds an MBA from Columbia Business School, and a BSc in Management from Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics. She is a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers Community, and an Associate with the European Round Table for Industry (ERT).
