Nancy McKinstry featured among the MOST POWERFUL WOMEN: EMEA by Fortune

 The first female&mdashand first American&mdashCEO of Wolters Kluwer in the Netherlands, McKinstry has led a digital transformation of the 175-year old Dutch publishing house. Wolters Kluwer&rsquos stock price has doubled since she took charge a decade ago, and the firm has returned half of its cash to shareholders in 2015 in the form of dividends and share buybacks. McKinstry is the only CEO of a Dutch-listed company who has fulfilled the government&rsquos target to have 30% women on company boards by 2016. And over half of the company&rsquos 19,000 employees are women.
