Today (February 1, 2013), the CFPB announced that Steve Antonakes will serve as Acting Deputy Director during the agency’s search for a replacement for departing Deputy Director Raj Date. Date, whose tenure at the CFPB ended yesterday, joined the bureau in February 2011 as associate director of research, markets and regulations and then succeeded Elizabeth Warren as special advisor when she stepped down on August 1, 2011. Antonakes joined the bureau in November 2010 and currently serves as the Associate Director for Supervision, Enforcement, and Fair Lending—a position he will continue to hold, while also serving as the Acting Deputy Director. Prior to joining the CFPB, Antoakes served as a financial services regulator in Massachusetts for over 20 years. Unlike Date, however, Antoakes lacks any direct industry experience. The CFPB has not announced a timeline to name a permanent replacement.

"I have enjoyed receiving the Lexology newsfeeds over the last few months and in general find the articles of good quality and relevant. I like the fact that the email contains a short indication of the subject matter of the articles, which allows me to skim the newsfeed very quickly and decide which articles to read in more detail."
