On July 22, 2015, the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced that Meredith Fuchs will serve as Acting Deputy Director when Deputy Director Steve Antonakes departs the agency at the end of July. Mr. Antonakes currently serves as both Deputy Director for the Bureau and Associate Director for the Division of Supervision, Enforcement and Fair Lending. Earlier this month, Ms. 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. David Bleicken, Deputy Associate Director for Supervision, Enforcement and Fair Lending, will serve as Acting Associate Director for that division while a search for a replacement is conducted.
