CFPB's Hackett to Deliver Keynote at NAF Conference

March 06, 2012

HANOVER, Md. -- The National Automotive Finance (NAF) Association announced that Richard P. Hackett, an assistant director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), will be the keynote speaker at the NAF’s 16th annual conference. The event is scheduled to take place May 30 to June 1, 2012, at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel in Texas.

“The Association is fortunate to have Rick as our keynote speaker," said Jack Tracey, the NAF Association’s executive director. “The CFPB is just getting off the ground, and our members are interested to learn more about the Bureau. This is one of the first opportunities our members will have to hear directly from the auto financing industry’s regulator. We’re excited to be able to provide this opportunity.”

The keynote presentation will be based on questions submitted in advance by NAF members. The members' questions will be compiled and Tom Hudson, the NAF Association’s counsel, will pose the questions to Hackett at the conference.

Hackett, who spent more than 30 years in private practice representing creditors, currently leads the Installment and Liquidity Lending Group in the Research, Markets and Rulemaking division of the CFPB. His responsibilities at the bureau include advising all divisions on market information, policy and legal issues in the installment and specialty lending areas, including vehicle finance.
