CLP Changes Name to Incorporate ‘Finance’

January 09, 2015, 07:00 AM

The Certified Lease Professional Foundation announced today that the organization has officially changed its name, effective immediately, to the Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation in order to better reflect the various types of financial products offered in the commercial equipment industry.

Brian Schonfeld, CLFP, President of the 2015 CLFP Board of Directors stated, “I’m very excited about the new direction and focus the Foundation is taking.  By incorporating “Finance” not only into our name but our knowledge and educational platforms as well, we are demonstrating our commitment to maintaining our position as the preeminent credential for leasing and financing professionals.”

Executive Director, Reid Raykovich, CLFP further noted, “When I took over the Foundation almost three years ago, the Board had been discussing the name change and I am excited that we have now instituted the change, especially during such a special year for us.  It is the 30th year of the designation and the 15th year of the Foundation’s existence.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 229 Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates throughout the world. For more information, call Reid Raykovich, CLP at (206) 535-6281 or visit
