Last week, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced four appointments to its leadership team.
In addition to naming Anthony Alexis as assistant director of enforcement, the CFPB also announced the hiring of Leandra English as deputy chief operating officer, Agnes Bundy Scanlan as the regional director of supervision examination, and Jeffrey Sumberg as chief human capital officer.
In addition to his years in private practice and as an assistant United States attorney, Alexis previously served as acting assistant director, principal deputy, and deputy assistant director for field litigation for the CFPB’s Office of Enforcement. English, who helped to launch the CFPB by working in a number of senior leadership roles, including deputy chief of staff, is rejoining the CFPB after spending time at the Office of Management and Budget, where she was senior advisor and chief of staff to the deputy director of management.
Scanlan previously held roles as a senior risk advisor at Treliant Risk Advisors and prior to that as the chief compliance officer at TD Bank. Sumberg has 27 years of experience in senior human capital experience in both the public and private sectors, including most recently was a senior leader in the capital practice of Deloitte Consulting and prior to that served as a senior executive at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
“We are delighted to add some new members to leadership positions, as well as welcome back some old faces to the CFPB. These people joining the CFPB leadership team bring a wealth of experience with them that will add to the great work already being done at the Bureau,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray in the press release. “The work of improving financial markets for consumers is a complex and rigorous task, but with the talented individuals we are announcing today, I am confident we have the best possible team to take on this work.”
