When asked why he pursued the designation, Mr. McMahon stated, “I joined the equipment finance industry shortly after graduating college. I was aware of the CLFP organization not long after I began my career and I knew it was something I wanted to do; not only to pursue my personal education and growth, but to be part of the lease and finance professional’s network. I believe I am now part of a community where I can not only share ideas but also learn from others who have some illustrious years in the business under their belts.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 401 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates. For more information, call Executive Director Reid Raykovich, CLFP at (206) 535-6281 or visit
