Wolters Kluwer Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) has appointed Raja Sengupta as Executive Vice President and General Manager of its award-winning ELM Solutions business, effective May 3, 2021.
He replaces Jonah Paransky who is stepping down from the position after four years to pursue outside career interests. Sengupta previously led Wolters Kluwer GRC’s Lien Solutions business.
Wolters Kluwer's ELM Solutions is the market-leading global provider of enterprise legal spend and matter management, contract lifecycle management, and legal analytics solutions. The company provides a comprehensive suite of tools that address the growing needs of corporate legal operations departments to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs. Corporate legal and insurance claims departments trust its innovative technology and end-to-end customer experience to drive world-class business outcomes.
“Corporate legal professionals are increasingly leveraging technology solutions and analytics to manage risk and drive operational efficiencies,” said Richard Flynn, CEO of Wolters Kluwer GRC. “Raja is a customer-focused leader who has combined data-driven insights and advanced technology to create market-leading solutions for customers ranging from the largest global banks to start-up businesses. I am excited that he will now bring this approach and expertise to serve our corporate legal and insurance customers and their law firms”.
Sengupta was named Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lien Solutions in late 2016. As the chief executive of the business, he has successfully led a growing organization focused on providing lien search and filing services, which reported a record year for independent industry recognition in 2020. Before joining Lien Solutions, Raja was Executive Vice President and General Manager of CT Small Business, a Wolters Kluwer GRC legal solutions business providing compliance solutions to small and mid-sized businesses for business formations, business license, digital brand protection, and other governance, risk, and compliance issues.
Prior to Wolters Kluwer, Sengupta served as General Manager of American Express Merchant Financing. He started his career as a management consultant in Mitchell Madison Group’s New York office. Subsequently, as global head of Banking & Financial Services Practices at Inductis LLC (now part of EXL Service), he played a critical role in the firm’s growth, positioning it as a reputable player in big data analytics.
“Wolters Kluwer's ELM Solutions has a strong track record in delivering effective and innovative legal operations technology, including market-leading legal analytics solutions. Our award-winning software materially supports customers and their efforts to achieve operational efficiencies, and I am honored to be asked to lead a business with such a distinguished reputation,” Sengupta said. “I look forward to working with the talented team to ensure our customers continue to benefit from new technology advances as the legal services market evolves.”
