Dave Uejio will serve as acting director until the President’s nominee, Federal Trade Commission Commissioner Rohit Chopra, is confirmed by the Senate as the next director of the CFPB.

After former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Kathy Kraninger stepped down at the request of the President, Dave Uejio took over as the bureau’s acting director. The President named Uejio acting director, moving him from his previous role as CFPB strategy program manager. In that role, he reported to the deputy director, led the 30-person Office of Strategy to define the bureau’s enterprise level strategy and policy priorities, identified and managed enterprise risks, evaluated impact of major programs and drove organizational performance. Uejio originally joined CFPB in February 2012 as its first lead for talent acquisition, where he created a recruiting program to support the start-up of the bureau. Through the years he has held other roles at the CFPB including strategy program manager, acting deputy chief of staff and acting chief of staff. “I am obsessed with providing the American people with the world-class federal government they deserve,” Uejio said on his LinkedIn bio. “I help agencies define their strategy, prioritize their work, identify and address the risks standing in the way and leverage data to measure their impact and performance. At the CFPB, that means aligning the incredible experts of the bureau to translate the mission into action.” Uejio will serve as acting director until the President’s nominee, Federal Trade Commission Commissioner Rohit Chopra, is confirmed by the Senate as the next director of the CFPB.
