Hubert H. Humphrey III, who was named Assistant Director for Older Americans at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Oct. 9, 2011, has taken on a new post at the bureau; he is now Senior Liaison Officer. The new job will give him more opportunity to be in his home state of Minnesota.
“My work will focus more closely on collaborating and working with organizations that work with consumers throughout the country. I will continue to travel the country to meet with consumers, policy makers, advocates, and both public and private agencies to talk about how we address the myriad problems facing older consumers today,” Humphrey said.
“This is going to mean a little less time in Washington and a little more time in Minnesota where all of my family lives. Just as so many seniors desire, I will be better able to share in the growth and maturing of the Humphrey family while continuing my commitment to the good people of this nation as I continue my work with the CFPB,” he said. “I’ll also be working closely with my Deputy, Stacy Canan, to help the Bureau find the next Assistant Director for Older Americans.”
Humphrey listed two major accomplishments at the CFPB during his 18-month stint: producing a report on reverse mortgages, and establishing working relationships with several non-profit organizations, financial institutions, state attorneys general and a variety of federal agencies.
Humphrey blogged about this on April 3.
Humphrey spent 10 years in the Minnesota state senate, and served 16 years as the state’s attorney general.
The Office of Financial Protection for Older Americans was set up within the CFPB to provide specialized information designed to help senior citizens navigate the financial landscape. This brochure provides additional information about the office.
