Paul B. Uhlenhop, Prominent Financial Services Attorney and Long-Time NSCP Member Dies at Age 84

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Paul B. Uhlenhop. Paul was a member of NSCP for over 30 years. He was a staunch supporter of NSCP and the financial services compliance industry. Paul volunteered endless hours to NSCP participating and chairing several committees, writing for NSCP’s monthly publication, NSCP Currents, and sharing his expertise and knowledge as a frequent speaker at NSCP conferences.

In 2015, Paul received the Joan Hinchman Award as recognition of his contributions to NSCP and advocacy efforts on behalf of financial services compliance professionals.

Above all, Paul was a caring, generous and respectful man. We will sorely miss him being part of our community.
