Senior Director, Federal Consumer Program

We're keeping busy promoting the CFPB's 4th birthday.

CFPB was established by Congress just one year before that, with the July 21, 2010 passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the wake of the financial collapse of 2007-2008, caused by a lack of adequate regulation.
