Jennifer Dirkes attended the online ALFP hosted by Tamarack Consulting in October and stated, “I have been in this industry for a long time and being a CLFP was always something I had in the back of my mind but continued to tell myself it wasn’t for me. I always knew being a CLFP was being amongst the best of the best in this industry. To be honest, truth be told I was always scared to take the leap and fail.  With COVID-19 hitting, it’s been a long year for so many including myself.  I needed to say I accomplished something, and I needed it to be big and to prove to myself I belong in this industry.  So, I did just that, I went big and decided to take my CLFP Exam.  I am truly honored to have learned from the best of the best and to be in a group of amazing people that truly love and cherish the leasing and finance profession as much as I do.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 955 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates in the United States, Canada, India and Australia.
