“The equipment finance industry is quite fascinating. Not only do you get the chance to connect with customers on how your services can positively impact their company, but you also are given the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals within the EF industry that are empowering,” Shaut said. “I chose to strive for the CLFP certification because I wanted to grow on a personal level and with others on a professional level because there’s a niche for positivity, creativity, kindness, patience, knowledge, respect, innovation and connection. This accomplishment is something you work towards and rewards you with extensive knowledge and close relations with others just like you [wo are] motivated to make a positive difference.”

“I decided to [pursue] the CLFP because of the growth I’ve seen myself go through since starting in the industry in May of 2021 and figured what better way to solidify and continue that growth than by passing the CLFP exam,” Groshen said.

“Personally, this was a major initiative. I first learned of the CLFP designation through trying to meet as many movers and shakers as I could in the industry, and the one thing they all had in common was being a CLFP,” Cimino said. “As the go-to designation in the equipment financing and leasing industry, I am more than excited to be representing as one of the newest CLFPs.”
