According to HousingWire, Richard Cordray, the newly-appointed director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), chose Raj Date as the agency’s first deputy director. Originally the head of research, markets, and the regulations division, Date took over from CFPB architect Elizabeth Warren as special advisor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. He has served as the de facto head of CFPB pending Cordray’s appointment, which was effected during the Senate recess this week. Kent Markus, previously chief counsel to Ohio’s governor, was named by Cordray as assistant director of the office of enforcement.
