Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

PAVE leadership 1


Rohit Chopra is Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB is a unit of the Federal Reserve System charged with protecting families and honest businesses from illegal practices by financial institutions. As CFPB Director, Mr. Chopra is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Financial Stability Oversight Council.

In 2018, Mr. Chopra was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as a Commissioner on the Federal Trade Commission, where he served until assuming office as CFPB Director. During his tenure at the FTC, he successfully strengthened sanctions against repeat offenders, reversed FTC’s reliance on no-money, no-fault settlements in fraud cases, and halted abuses of small businesses. He also led efforts to revitalize dormant authorities, such as those to protect the “Made in the USA” label and promote competition.

Mr. Chopra previously served at the CFPB from 2010 to 2015. In 2011, the Secretary of the Treasury designated him as the agency’s Student Loan Ombudsman, where he led the Bureau’s efforts on student lending issues. Before government service, Chopra worked at McKinsey & Company, the global management consultancy. At McKinsey, he worked in the financial services, health care, and consumer technology sectors.

Chopra holds a BA from Harvard University and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
