Credit union regulator taps veteran staffer to lead consumer protection efforts

Overseeing consumer financial protection policy and rulemaking efforts, among other things, for the federal credit union regulator will be the role of the new director for the agency’s office of consumer financial protection.

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) said Friday that Matthew J. Biliouris will lead its Office of Consumer Financial Protection (OCFP). Aside from policy and rulemaking in consumer protection issues addressed by the agency, the office also oversees the agency’s fair lending examination program, consumer assistance center, and interagency coordination on consumer financial protection compliance matters.

Biliouris was previously the acting director of the OCFP and before that served as its deputy director for five years. He is a 26-year veteran of the agency.
