The recent CLFPs all share a common value on continued education and elevating their careers by earning the designation. All graduates recently attended an Academy for Lease & Finance Professionals (ALFP) as the final step in their CLFP journey before taking the Exam.

Joshua Muldoon, CLFP from Taycor Financial, said, “I chose to pursue the designation to simply further my knowledge of the industry as a whole and test myself. I predominantly work within sales, and I felt like I wanted to increase my knowledge of the other parts of the equipment financing industry. This is going to help my career greatly, I think to truly be an asset to the industry it is important to be well-rounded; the CLFP offers the best way to achieve that."
“[The] CLFP allowed me to expand knowledge and skills beyond my daily responsibilities. I strongly believe that the CLFP designation will help me to be a great asset to my employer and customers. Giving back to the industry as an experienced and well-educated professional is something that I care about,” said Aleksandra Karcz, CLFP from Huntington National Bank. “The CLFP designation will allow me to be a better resource for the customers to support their equipment finance business needs and identify new opportunities.”

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.
