Consumer Bankers Association names new CEO

The Consumer Bankers Association has found a successor for the retiring Richard Hunt.

The association said in a press release Tuesday that Lindsey Johnson, president of U.S. Mortgage Insurers since 2015, will become its president and CEO on July 5. 

“From leading an industry association that works to expand access to homeownership to serving in senior leadership roles on Capitol Hill and within the financial services industry, Lindsey brings to CBA nearly two decades of advocacy and strategic leadership experience,” Michelle Lee, the association’s chairman, said in the release. 

“With a depth of financial services knowledge and a proven record of bipartisan advocacy, Lindsey is just the leader we were looking for to promote the work of our member banks, advance commonsense policy solutions and champion our industry and the customers we serve,” Lee added. 

Hunt has led the CBA since 2009. He announced plans to retire last year.
