Meredith Fuchs Named Acting Deputy Director of the CFPB
Friday, July 24, 2015 6:35 AM

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau yesterday announced that Meredith Fuchs will serve as acting deputy director when Deputy Director Steve Antonakes departs the agency at the end of July.

Earlier this month, Fuchs announced her intention to step down as general counsel, but she will continue to serve as general counsel and acting deputy director until a permanent replacement is selected for each position.

Fuchs joined the Bureau in 2011 as principal deputy general counsel before serving as chief of staff to CFPB Director Richard Cordray. Prior to joining the CFPB, she served as chief investigative counsel of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce. Previously, Fuchs held positions as vice president and general counsel of the National Security Archive at George Washington University, a litigation partner in private practice, the Supreme Court Assistance Project Fellow at the Public Citizen Litigation Group, and an officer on the D.C. Bar Board of Governors. She is the recipient of the American Library Association’s James Madison Award. Fuchs is a graduate of the New York University School of Law and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
