Ian McKendry has a report in the American Banker, Is Trump team moving to political middle in CFPB director search?, that mentions Iannicola, who served in the Treasury Department in the second Bush administration and is currently CEO of the Financial Literacy Group. Among their clients is the CFPB. The article also notes that another candidate, Jonathan Dever, sponsored a bill to allow consumer borrowers who don't qualify for mortgage modifications to stay in their homes. Dever's firm's website also advertises foreclosure defense.
