In his post on the CFPB’s announcement about the appointments to its new councils, Alan Kaplinsky observed that while the CFPB provided biographies for the appointees to its Consumer Advisory Council, it did not do so for the six professors appointed to its Academic Research Council.  Given the significant influence the Academic Research Council is likely to have, the Consumer Bankers Association thought it was important for industry to know more about the six appointees and compiled biographies on each of them.
