To do so, Operation HOPE works to provide economic tools and services through a series of public/private partnerships and strategic alliances. Since 1992, Operation HOPE has provided financial literacy training and credit counseling to more than 2 million adults and helped scores of them buy a home or start a business. Wolters Kluwer Financial Services is proud to be able to assist in the endeavor by providing products and leadership.
Wolters Kluwer Financial & Compliance Services divisional CEO, Brian Longe has served on its Global Board of Directors for the past six years, providing leadership and his industry insights and knowledge to the group.
