CFPB Taps House Financial Services Committee for New Chief of Staff

Kirsten Sutton Mork, the House Financial Services Committee’s staff director, will become the CFPB’s chief of staff in coming weeks, according to an announcement from committee Chairman U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas.

Sutton Mork will replace Leandra English, who was named deputy director of the CFPB before Richard Cordray resigned in November 2017 and formerly worked as chief of staff, Reuters reports.

Hensarling released the following statement: “As one of my longest-serving and most dedicated aides, Kirsten has been an indispensable adviser to me for the last nine years. Her leadership, deep understanding of financial policy and the legislative process, strength of character, and commitment to conservative principles have been vital to the great victories the committee has achieved for the American people during her tenure here. While I am sad to lose such exceptional talent, I know she will do an outstanding job as chief of staff for the CFPB and be a tireless advocate for American consumers.”

Hensarling also announced that Shannon McGahn will return to the committee to serve as staff director. McGahn joined the U.S. Department of the Treasury as counselor to the secretary at the beginning of the Trump Administration.
