The CFPB announced the addition of several staff members to senior positions within the agency, including COO, chief of staff, assistant director for the Office of Older Americans and the program manager for servicing and securitization markets.
Sartaj Alag, who will serve as the CFPB’s COO, previously helped in the start-up and management of the Office of Consumer Response, before which time he spent 10 years at Capital One. He also spent part of his career as a management consultant at McKinsey & Co.
Christopher D’Angelo will serve as the agency’s chief of staff. He joined the CFPB in 2011 as an attorney in the enforcement division, and he most recently served as a senior adviser to CFPB Director Richard Cordray. D’Angelo previously worked at the U.S. Treasury, where he served as a senior adviser to the undersecretary for domestic finance.
Nora Dowd Eisenhower, who previously served as the director of the National Center for Benefits Outreach and Enrollment on the National Council on Aging, will serve as the new assistant director for the CFPB Office of Older Americans. Eisenhower worked earlier in her career to combat healthcare fraud among Medicare beneficiaries and served as a deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.
Laurie Maggiano will join the CFPB as the program manager for servicing and securitization markets. Before joining the CFPB, Maggiano served as the director of policy at the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Homeownership Preservation. During her time at the U.S. Treasury, Maggiano helped create the Making Home Affordable Program that helped form the basis for the CFPB’s mortgage servicing rules.
“Good work starts with great people,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said. “That is why we continue to identify and bring on board experienced individuals who share our passion to reform the consumer financial markets. We are excited to have these talented people join us and work alongside our already stellar staff.”
