CFPB fills key senior positions
WASHINGTON (3/13/14)--Three senior posts have been filled at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, including one in the Office of Financial Empowerment, which has worked with credit unions and other financial institutions to gather information on available financial coaching services for economically vulnerable consumers, including veterans in transition, people with disabilities, and those who are transitioning back into the workforce.
 
The CFPB announced Wednesday that:
  • Daniel Dodd-Ramirez is now CFPB assistant director of Financial Empowerment in the bureau's Consumer Education and Engagement Division. Dodd-Ramirez has previously served as the executive director of Step Up Savannah Inc. in Savannah, Ga., from 2005 to 2014, and as education project director and community organizer for People Acting for Community Together in Miami. From 1998 to 2000, he was the human resources director for Families First, a social services agency in southern Vermont.
  • Christopher D. Carroll is CFPB assistant director and chief economist for the Office of Research in the bureau's Research, Markets, and Regulations Division. Carroll is a professor of economics at Johns Hopkins University, from which he has taken a leave of absence to serve at CFPB. He also is a member of the board of directors of the National Bureau of Economic Research, and the co-chair of the NBER Research Group on Consumption. Carroll has served as a senior economist for the Council of Economic Advisors on two separate occasions, and as an economist for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
  • Jeffrey Langer has joined the CFPB as the assistant director of Installment and Liquidity Lending Markets in the bureau's Research, Markets, and Regulations Division.  Langer most recently served as senior counsel at Macy's, Inc. in Mason, Ohio.  He also has served as a partner in several law firms, including Jones Day and Dreher Langer & Tomkies. He is a founding fellow and treasurer of the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers and is a former chair of the Consumer Financial Services Committee of the American Bar Association Business Law Section.
