A new CEO was named today for the practice management company MyCase, following its $193 million acquisition last September by private equity firm Apax Partners.

Taking over as CEO effective immediately is Jim McGinnis, who most recently was EVP/GM of Wolters Kluwer’s Tax and Accounting North America Professional Segment, where he helped build CCH Axcess as a leading SaaS solution in the accounting profession.

Earlier, McGinnis was vice president at Intuit, where he led marketing and product management for the professional division and led the accountant segment as part of Intuit’s QuickBooks business. He has also held senior leadership positions at Activision, PepsiCo, and Procter & Gamble.

“I’m honored and excited to lead a company so beloved by its customers,” McGinnis said in a statement released by the company. “MyCase is in a wonderful position to help law firms better serve their clients and better manage their firms. I cannot wait to contribute to MyCase’s strong track record of best-in-class product and customer delight.”

“Jim is an exceptional leader, with a deep product management background and a strong track record of growing SaaS businesses,” said Umang Kajaria, Partner at Apax Partners. “He is especially adept at leading businesses that serve professionals, having spent more than a decade helping Accountants. We welcome Jim to MyCase and look forward to partnering with him to accelerate innovation for our law firm customers.”

Founded in 2010, MyCase is a leading cloud-based legal practice management software designed to help firms run efficiently from anywhere, provide an exceptional client experience, and easily track firm performance so that firms can reach their business goals.

In 2012, it was acquired by AppFolio, a company that creates software for residential property management. In September, AppFolio sold it to Apax.
