Wolters Kluwer celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month: Rudy Avila

From September 15 to October 15, Americans observe Hispanic Heritage Month. In celebration, Wolters Kluwer has spotlighted the careers and stories of several of our Hispanic leaders whose heritage has influenced their contributions and furthered our culture of innovation.

Rudy enjoys celebrating his heritage by spending quality time with extended family, and he loves having a piñata at his kids’ birthday parties. He describes his mother’s cooking as, “heaven on earth — especially her homemade salsa and tamales!”
