Monitor 2021 Women’s List: Kimberly King, CLFP

by Monitor Staff Nov/Dec 2021

Kimberly King, CLFP,
Business Development Representative,
Navitas Credit

As a business development representative, Kim King establishes and fosters relationships with Navitas Credit’s broker and syndication partners. King attributes much of her success to the mentorship she’s received and shared with so many industry veterans and the friendships she’s developed from her time at the National Equipment Finance Association. Having those opportunities to learn and grow and use that as her foundation to build her career has been invaluable for her and has played a significant part in her transition from managing a trade association to her role in business development for Navitas.


“We’re all products of the communities we live in. This industry is our community, which is why it’s important to volunteer our time and support our industry associations as well as our colleagues. Life is a gift and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by doing more than what our day-to-day routine asks of us.”

King is an active volunteer on the NEFA’s Chris Walker education fund committee and membership committee and most recently was elected as a director on the NEFA’s board of directors. Additionally, she participated on a panel sharing her insights regarding the commercial financing disclosure regulations taking place in New York and California at the 2021 NEFA Funding Symposium.

Within her first two years with Navitas Credit, King was recognized as her division’s President’s Club Award winner in 2020, achieved her Certified Lease & Finance Professional certification and was recognized as a NextGen Leader by Monitor in 2021.

King’s professional mission is simple: to give back.

“I want to advocate the importance of giving back by mentoring our future generations to help them see their potential by encouraging them to focus their energy on their gifts and their strengths so that they can use their talent to create positive changes within our workforce and within our industry,” King says. “And, with the idea that one day, they’ll do the same by giving back to the next generation. That’s the legacy I hope to create.”

“Kim King has spent most of her career making the National Equipment Finance Association what it is today. Her time there helped her develop more relationships with people in our industry than others twice her age,” Stephanie Hall, executive vice president of BankFinancial, says. “Most importantly, her relationships are meaningful and many of us call her our friend because she embodies one of my favorite sentiments, which is ‘leave people better than you found them.’ She is kind, caring and loves our industry with passion that is contagious. Those of us who are lucky to know her are better than she found us.”
