(OMAHA, NE – January 14, 2015) — GreenPath, Inc., a nationwide, non-profit consumer credit counseling agency, doing business as GreenPath Financial Wellness, recently announced that it is providing in-person credit counseling, financial education and debt management services in the Nebraska cities of Omaha, Lincoln and Norfolk, through its recent acquisition of Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Nebraska, Inc.
GreenPath, which was founded in 1961, confirmed the merger with CCCS of Nebraska on January 2. The Nebraska agency has served local residents since 1976.
“We are very pleased that CCCS of Nebraska is joining GreenPath,” said Jane McNamara, GreenPath president and CEO. “We look forward to providing residents with the same great customer service and resources that they have been accustomed to with CCCS of Nebraska.”
Donald Leu, president and CEO of the former CCCS of Nebraska, said the merger with GreenPath is a logical choice. “Our local offices will continue to serve residents with free face-to-face appointments and financial education presentations,” said Leu. “We also look forward to providing even more services and community outreach in the Omaha, Lincoln and Norfolk areas.” Leu will serve as community engagement liaison for GreenPath’s operations in the region.
