Mr. Hock's Biography

Brian Hock graduated Cum Laude from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with Bachelor’s degrees in Accountancy and History. He currently lives near Columbus, Ohio with his wife and three children. 

Brian began his accounting career in Togliatti, Russia, as an auditor for Price Waterhouse. In 1997 Brian moved to Moscow, Russia and worked in training with Price Waterhouse, ATC International, and Arthur Andersen.

In 2000, Brian founded HOCK Training in Moscow, as an independent training organization and began training for the CMA, CPA, and CIA exams. In the following years, HOCK Training opened offices in Almaty (Kazakhstan), Kiev (Ukraine), and Minsk (Belarus).

Through developing the CMA, CPA, and CIA courses at HOCK Training, Brian wrote study materials focusing on clear and complete explanations and examples rather than just summaries or reviews that are common in other materials. The additional details were instrumental in opening the doors to US certifications for students across Eastern Europe who did not have a strong background in US accounting terms and practices.

In 2003, Brian founded HOCK international to offer these study materials to candidates worldwide who could not attend HOCK’s live-taught classes. Since that time HOCK international has continued to expand their materials offerings and provides on-line training for the CMA, CIA and CPA Exams to candidates around the world. 

In 2018, HOCK opened representative offices in the UAE and India to provide live-taught classes and local support to candidates in those countries. In 2019 HOCK opened an office in Egypt. Through partnerships with local institutes, HOCK has representatives in Jordan and Palestine.
