Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Appoints David Reiling as Vice Chair of Community Bank Advisory Council

October 1, 2015

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) named Sunrise Banks CEO, David Reiling, as Vice Chair of its Community Bank Advisory Council (CBAC). Reiling will serve under the newly appointed Chair Guillermo Diaz-Rousselot.

Per the Dodd-Frank Act, the purpose of the CFPB is to “supervise depository institutions and credit unions with total assets of more than $10 billion and their respective affiliates.” To ensure the “unique perspectives” of those depository institutions with less than $10 billion in assets are shared with the Bureau, the CFBP created the Community Bank Advisory Council. According to the Community Bank Advisory Council’s charter Off Site Link, this ensures that an “interactive dialogue and exchange of ideas and experiences between community bankers and Bureau staff” are shared.

“The experience of this past year on the Community Bank Advisory Council has been more than rewarding,” says Reiling, “I am honored to be asked to serve as the CBAC Vice Chair and look forward to engaging with the Bureau to communicate the impact of regulations on community banks as well as the customers and communities they serve.”
