CFPB Acting Director Names Chief of Staff

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Acting Director Mick Mulvaney has officially named Kirsten Sutton Mork chief of staff for the agency. Sutton Mork has been serving as staff director of the House Financial Services Committee under Chairman Jeb Hensarling, according to a news release from the CFPB.

“I worked with Kirsten during my tenure as a member on the House Financial Services Committee and can attest to her in-depth financial policy expertise, proven track record of developing and implementing strategic initiatives, and ability to manage a team,” Mulvaney said in the news release. “Kirsten brings with her more than a decade of invaluable experience that will advance the mission of the Bureau and make it more efficient, effective and accountable.”

Sutton Mork’s tenure on Capitol Hill spans the financial crisis and post-crisis legislative response. She staffed Hensarling during House Financial Services Committee, House and conference committee consideration of the legislation that established the Bureau, the Dodd-Frank Act, and she is intimately familiar with the Bureau’s statutory mission and obligations, according to the CFPB.

Sutton Mork was appointed deputy staff director to the House Financial Services Committee in 2013 and became staff director in early 2017.
