The Trump transition team has released the names of three more individuals who will be members of the CFPB landing team.  “Landing teams” are members of the incoming president’s transition team tasked with gathering information about their assigned agency.

We previously reported that Paul Atkins would be on the landing team for the CFPB as well as the landing teams for the FDIC and OCC.  According to the President-elect’s website, Mr. Atkins will also be a member of the FTC landing team.  Mr. Atkins is an attorney who served as a commissioner on the SEC from 2002 to 2008.  He is currently CEO of a company that provides consulting services regarding financial services industry matters, including regulatory compliance, risk and crisis management, public affairs, independent reviews, litigation support, and strategy.

The other CFPB landing team members are:

  • Kyle Hauptman. Mr. Hauptman is currently a Senior Development Manager at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and a member of the SEC’s Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies.  (AEI describes itself as “a public policy think tank” whose work “advances ideas rooted in our belief in democracy, free enterprise, American strength and global leadership, solidarity with those at the periphery of our society, and a pluralistic, entrepreneurial culture.”)
  • Consuala “CJ” Jordan. Ms. Jordan is currently President and CEO of a government relations firm that specializes in strategic business development and President of the National Black Republican Leadership Council.
  • Julie Bell Lindsay. Ms. Lindsay is an attorney who currently is the Managing Director and General Counsel of Capital Markets and Corporate Reporting at Citigroup Inc.

According to Politico, the Trump transition team has created “landing teams” that will be tasked with going into federal agencies to prepare for the change in Administrations.

Politico has reported that Paul Atkins, who leads the transition team for independent regulatory agencies, will be on the landing team for the CFPB as well as the landing teams for the FDIC and OCC.

Mr. Atkins’ biography on Wikipedia indicates that he is an attorney who served as a commissioner on the SEC from 2002 to  2008.  It states that he has most recently been the CEO of a company that provides consulting services regarding financial services industry matters, including regulatory compliance, risk and crisis management, public affairs, independent reviews, litigation support, and strategy.
