Wendy Dixon attended that ALFP and said, “This is such an exciting time for me! I wanted to pursue the CLFP designation because I have fallen in love with the financing world. It excites me to know how much I have gained from this experience and still what is yet to come. Sure, my mind was challenged, and I doubted myself at times, but told myself every day that I had this! The CLFP Foundation and its representatives have been so supportive throughout this entire experience and I’m looking forward to the future and the possibilities.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the commercial equipment finance industry. There are Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates located throughout the United States (including Puerto Rico), Canada, India, Africa and Australia.
