CLFP Foundation Adds First Australian CLFP

August 16, 2017, 06:51 AM

The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation announced that David Gill has become the first Australian CLFP.  Gill is the CEO of the Commercial Asset Finance Brokers Association of Australia (CAFBA) and has been working with the CLFP Foundation with hopes to offer a comparable designation in Australia.

Gill stated, “CAFBA sees education as the key to professionalism, and the pathway to a career as an equipment finance professional. After being introduced to the CLFP Foundation at a recent ELFA conference and reviewing the content it became immediately apparent that we needed to introduce it to Australia and become part of the international designation.  To view this firsthand I recently attended an Academy for Lease & Finance Professionals and came away extremely impressed with the content and learning objectives. CAFBA looks forward to working with the CLFP Foundation and adapting the program to local laws and conditions in Australia.”

Amy Spragg, CLFP, President of the CLFP Board of Directors added, “The CLFP Foundation is thrilled to be expanding internationally and working with the CAFBA in creating a credential program for our Australian peers.  We look forward to consulting with them and modifying our current body of knowledge and exam to reflect their specific regulations, laws and products.  We truly believe that this is the beginning of a great collaboration between two organizations and a productive and positive new direction for the CLFP Foundation as it continues to thrive and grow.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 464 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates. For more information, call Executive Director Reid Raykovich, CLFP at (206) 535-6281 or visit
