The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently announced three promotions within its upper ranks.
Chris D’Angelo, previously the bureau’s chief of staff, will now serve as associate director for supervision, enforcement and fair lending. D’Angelo joined the CFPB in June 2011 and previously served as senior advisor to the director and as an attorney in the office of enforcement.
D’Angelo came to the bureau from the U.S. Treasury Department, where he was senior advisor to the under secretary for domestic finance and worked on financial regulation. Before entering public service, D’Angelo worked as an associate at Cravath, Swaine and Moore in New York and later at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C.
Richard Lepley, previously deputy general counsel for general law, ethics and oversight, will now serve as principal deputy general counsel, working in the office of the general counsel in the legal division.
Lepley, who has worked at the CFPB since 2010, previously served as the acting assistant general counsel for general law and ethics at the U.S. Treasury Department, working on draft legislation that became the Consumer Financial Protection Act. Prior to that, he spent more than two decades as a litigator and manager in the federal programs branch of the civil division at the U.S. Department of Justice. Prior to working in government, Lepley was an associate at Fullbright and Jaworski.
