Posted in CFPB General

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.
