CFPB Posts Biographies of Regional Directors

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau this week posted on its blog biographies of the regional directors at the agency’s Office of Supervision Examinations.

Edwin Chow, the West region’s director, is a former acting regional director at the now-defunct Office of Thrift Supervisions. Anthony Gibbs, the Midwest region’s director, is an accountant by trade and a 19-year veteran of HSBC Bank.

Steve Kaplan, the Northeast region’s director, served as the Pennsylvania secretary of banking from 2007 to 2011. Jim Carley, the Southeast region’s director, is a former senior associate director at the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s Division of Banking Regulation.

“Each of our regional directors is responsible for leading a staff that consists of three assistant regional directors, a team of field managers and a staff of over 100 examiners,” the CFPB said.
