The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau changed up its senior leadership team again, announcing new names to the positions of assistant director for the Office For Older Americans, deputy general counsel for litigation and oversight, and deputy general counsel for general law and ethics.
The CFPB promoted Stacy Canan to assistant director for the Office For Older Americans from deputy assistant director for the office for older americans. She has served in that role since joining the bureau in November 2012.
Before joining the CFPB, Canan was the managing attorney at the AARP Foundation Litigation group where she handled consumer protection and healthcare cases nationwide.
In addition, John Coleman will serve as the CFPB’s deputy general counsel for litigation and oversight in the legal division. Coleman joined the CFPB November 2010 as the assistant general counsel for litigation, and as senior litigation counsel.
Prior to the bureau, Coleman worked as a trial attorney in the Department of Justice’s Federal Programs Branch.
Lastly, the CFPB named Sonya White as deputy general counsel for general law and ethics in the legal division. White previously served as the bureau’s assistant general counsel for general law and ethics.
White worked as the deputy chief counsel at the U.S. Treasury Department, Bureau of Engraving and Printing prior to joining the CFPB in February 2013.
“I am delighted to announce today’s changes to three of the leadership positions here,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “These people have played important roles in fulfilling our mission to protect consumers, and I look forward to continuing to work alongside them here at the Bureau.”
Last July, the CFPB also made several major changes to its leadership team, with other three promotions at the bureau.
