Kathy Kraninger has, upon request of President Biden, resigned as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Rohit Chopra has been nominated by President Biden to serve as the new Director. He currently serves as a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Commissioner, having been appointed to that position in 2018 to fill one of the Democratic seats on the FTC. President Biden’s nomination will return Mr. Chopra to the CFPB, where he served as an Assistant Director and the CFPB’s Private Education Loan Ombudsman under former CFPB Director Richard Cordray. Until Mr Chopra is confirmed by the Senate, David Uejio who is currently Strategy Program Manager at the CFPB, will serve as Acting Director.

In this webinar, we will discuss changes that the CFPB is likely to undergo under Messrs. Chopra and Uejio's leadership and how they will possibly approach the use of the CFPB’s regulatory, enforcement, and supervisory authorities. We will look at the actions and positions taken, and their implications, by Mr. Chopra while at the CFPB and FTC for his new role as CFPB Director to inform our discussion.
