Brian Johnson named CFPB Acting Deputy Director

CFPB Acting Director Mick Mulvaney announced yesterday that he has selected Brian Johnson, who currently serves as CFPB Principal Policy Director, to serve as Acting Deputy Director.  Before joining the CFPB, Mr. Johnson served as a House Financial Services Committee staff member.

Mr. Johnson’s selection as Acting Deputy Director follows the announcement by Leandra English this past Friday that, in light of President Trump’s nomination of Kathy Kraninger to serve as CFPB Director, she would resign as Deputy Director this week and drop her lawsuit challenging Mr. Mulvaney’s appointment as Acting Director.
