In September, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the appointment of Clothilde “Cloey” Hewlett as the next commissioner of the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI). She will start after Thanksgiving and looks forward to continuing the department's work, as well as expanding outreach to community stakeholders.

As current executive director and chief legal officer for the Cal Alumni Association, Hewlett is responsible for overseeing an organization serving more than 550,000 alumni of UC Berkeley.

Hewlett has dedicated her career to protecting California consumers. She served as undersecretary of the state and consumer services agency and interim director of the Department of General Services (predecessor agency of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency).

She also has extensive enforcement experience, previously serving as an assistant district attorney for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, criminal investigator with the City and County of San Francisco, and director of moral character determinations for the State Bar of California.

Hewlett has been a partner with national and global law firms and received a bachelor's degree in political science from UC Berkeley. Her J.D. is from UC Berkeley School of Law.

The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues would like to congratulate Commissioner Hewlett in her new role, and we look forward to having a strong working relationship with her!
