Secretary Hagan retires after serving as IDFPR Secretary and more than 30 years in Illinois Attorney General’s Office

March 31, 2021 — CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation wishes to thank Deborah Hagan for her service as IDFPR’s Secretary. Her leadership led to several historic accomplishments for the Department, along with improvements to the professional licensing process in Illinois and more consumer protections for its residents.

Appointed Secretary by Governor Pritzker in February 2019, Hagan came to IDFPR after more than 30 years in the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, where she served as leader of the Consumer Protection Division. Secretary Hagan created the Office of Innovation within IDFPR, which will help encourage innovation in financial development in the banking and fintech sectors here in Illinois. Another addition to IDFPR under Secretary Hagan was the military liaison position, an individual who helps military service members and their spouses obtain any professional licensure needed before transferring to Illinois. Hagan also increased leadership opportunities for women and minorities, resulting in one of the most diverse executive staffs among Illinois agencies.
