For proof that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is growing fast, one need look no further than the elevator lobby at the front of their office space in a nondescript building in downtown Washington.
That’s where the new agency, days away from opening its doors on July 21, has taken to holding its all-hands-on-deck staff meetings. The DC office holds the majority of the agency’s 400 hires, and they could no longer fit in the conference room.
The person heading those meetings is not the agency’s director. The White House has yet to nominate one.
