First CIO is on the job at consumer protection bureau

Chris Willey already has started tweeting from his new post as the first chief information officer of the newly-formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was created by Congress in response to the sub-prime mortgage crisis.

“Great first day @CFPB,” Willey tweeted on Sept. 7 from his Twitter account @ChrisWilleyDC. “Dream team, ton of energy and passion. There’s nothing we cannot accomplish.”

Willey previously was deputy CIO at the Office of Personnel Management since March 2010. Prior to that position, he was deputy chief technology officer for the District of Columbia, and served seven months as interim CTO.

Willey has 20 years of experience in business and IT and holds a bachelor’s degree in English and Comparative Literature from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He also holds an MBA from the University of Maryland.

The consumer protection bureau oversees rules for mortgages, credit cards and checking accounts.
