The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said today it had filled three senior positions at the agency, including Jeffrey Langer who will take over as assistant director for the Office of Installment and Liquidity Lending Markets ― the area that oversees auto finance.
Langer will work at the bureau’s Research, Markets, and Regulations Division. Richard Hackett left that post in June 2013, after more than two years with the agency. CFPB Student Loan Ombudsman Rohit Chopra had assumed the post temporarily after Hackett left.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Langer is a consumer financial services, privacy and bank regulatory attorney. Most recently, he served as senior counsel at Macy’s Inc., where he advised the retail giant’s credit card business.
Langer, who reports to Associate Director David Silberman, leads the team that is the principal source of CFPB subject matter expertise for a range of installment lending markets, including auto.
The CFPB made two other appointments today: Christopher Carroll as assistant director and chief economist for the Office of Research, and Daniel Dodd-Ramirez as assistant director of financial empowerment in the bureau’s Consumer Education and Engagement Division.
