Neiser Appointed to Federal Advisory Post

Brent Neiser

In July, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) appointed NEFE Senior Director of Strategic Programs and Alliances Brent A. Neiser, CFP®, to its Consumer Advisory Board as one of six new consumer experts from outside the federal government.

The Consumer Advisory Board is a crowdsourced group of experts on consumer protection, financial products and services, community development, fair lending, civil rights, underserved populations, and communities significantly impacted by higher-priced mortgage loans.

Neiser will work alongside academics, practitioners, entrepreneurs, financial technology (fintech) innovators, community advocates, financial services executives, and compliance professionals to explore and achieve positive recommendations for the work of the CFPB. New members to the Consumer Advisory Board serve three-year terms.

“It is a great honor to help Americans with personal financial challenges and opportunities on a national scale. I look forward to working with a diverse group of national experts to advise CFPB leadership on consumer protection, housing, financial services, community development, and emerging issues and trends,” Neiser says.

The board shares analysis and recommendations to help inform the CFPB about emerging practices and trends in the consumer finance industry. Board members are charged with identifying and assessing the impact of emerging products, practices and services on consumers and other market participants.

“As the NEFE professional who works on strategic intelligence and long-range planning, government affairs, partnerships, outreach, and research and development, Brent can leverage his financial planning knowledge and experiences in this national role,” says NEFE President and CEO Ted Beck.

“It is exciting to be involved at this level. And like it says in the NEFE vision statement, I cannot wait to help Americans make informed, thoughtful and beneficial financial decisions that are aligned with their values so they can enjoy better, more secure, and more satisfying lives,” Neiser says.
