Sandra Braunstein, former federal regulator, has joined Wolters Kluwer Financial Services to provide compliance management and Community Reinvestment Act consulting services to the company's U.S. banking clients. Further, she will advise and collaborate with the Wolters Kluwer executive team on a number of strategic initiatives.
After nearly 27 years of service, Braunstein retired from her role as director of the Federal Reserve Board's division of consumer and community affairs in April 2014.
As director of this division, Braunstein served as CEO for all of the agency's consumer protection, consumer compliance supervision and community development programs. She also served as the chief policy advisor to the board of governors on all consumer and community development matters.
Braunstein also helped establish sweeping new regulatory protections for consumers in the residential mortgage market and oversaw the creation of mortgage foreclosure mitigation and neighborhood stabilization programs.
Prior to serving the board, Braunstein held positions in economic and community development for nonprofit, government and private-sector organizations.
‘Her perspectives will provides us with valuable insight into regulatory expectations as we continue to navigate the growing complexities of the broad field of compliance and address and meet the needs of our customers,’ says Timothy Burniston, executive vice president of Wolters Kluwer's consulting practice in the U.S.
