* Today, he serves as the Associate Director for Research, Markets & Regulations at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.Mr. Date has had a long and varied career in and around U.S. financial institutions — as a strategy consultant, as a bank executive, and on Wall Street. Until joining Cambridge Winter in 2009, he was a Managing Director in the Financial Institutions Group at Deutsche Bank Securities, where he led the firm’s investment banking coverage for the largest U.S.-based banks and thrifts. His client dialogue focused on calibrating credit deterioration, evaluating capital-raising alternatives, and generating liquidity.
Before that, Mr. Date was Senior Vice President for Corporate Strategy and Development at Capital One Financial, where he led M&A development efforts across the U.S. banking and specialty finance markets. He began his business career in the financial institutions practice of the consulting firm McKinsey & Company. He has also served as an attorney, in both private and government practice.
Mr. Date’s research with Cambridge Winter focused principally on consumer and small business finance, community banking, and “shadow banks” like investment banks, hedge funds, and finance companies. References to his work appear frequently in both the general and financial media — in publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Washington Post — and he has served as an on-air contributor for CNN, CNBC, Fox Business News, and NPR, among others. He has also testified before the Senate Banking Committee.
Before joining Treasury, Mr. Date served on the Boards of Directors of Prosper Marketplace, Inc., the leading peer-to-peer lending platform; Demos, a New York-based think tank; and the South Asian American Forum.
He is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley (highest honors), and the Harvard Law School (magna cum laude). He lives in New York City with his wife, an Assistant U.S. Attorney, and their twin son and daughter.
