The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has appointed Jerry Horton, former chief information officer at the U.S. Agency for International Development, as the bureau’s CIO and promoted deputy chief financial officer Elizabeth “Eli” Reilly to CFO in a series of leadership changes.
Horton previously worked at the State Department as head of the office of chief architect for the agency’s global information presence before he joined the bureau, CFPB said Friday.
He also served as CIO at the U.S. Mint within the Treasury Department and spent two decades in the private sector where he held technical and business leadership functions.
Prior to the bureau, Reilly served as a program examiner and acting branch head at the Office of Management and Budget and a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa.
Leandra English, formerly principal deputy chief of staff at the Office of Personnel Management, has returned to the bureau to serve as the agency’s chief of staff.
Paul Kantwill, former director at the office of legal policy under the defense undersecretary for personnel and readiness at the Defense Department, has been named assistant director for servicemember affairs at the bureau.
CFPB also named John McNamara, former debt collection program manager at the agency, as assistant director of consumer lending, reporting and collections markets.
