CLFP Foundation Adds 15 from KLC, IDS, Bank of the West, Others

The Certified Lease & Finance Professional Foundation said that 15 individuals recently sat through and passed the eight-hour online CLFP exam. Of those 15, 13 attended the most recent Academy for Lease & Finance Professionals hosted by International Decision Systems and KLC Financial in Minneapolis.

The newest CLFPs are:

  • Robin Cook – senior solutions consultant for International Decision Systems
  • Ashley Cook – vice president of Kinetic Leasing
  • Lesley Farmer – business development for KLC Financial
  • Juan-Carlos Garcia – regional sales manager for Bank of the West
  • Jared Keepman – business development for KLC Financial
  • Kevin Kelly – controller for KLC Financial
  • Sarah Kelly – lease administrator at KLC Financial
  • Kristie Kosobuski – senior director of product management for International Decision Systems
  • Daniel Nelson – president of Tamarack Consulting
  • Melissa Orsburne – senior product manager of International Decision Systems
  • Sheena Reeves – documentation administrator for Canon Financial Services
  • Wade Rignell – business development manager for Umpqua Bank Vendor Finance
  • Shannon Smith – vice president of KLC Financial
  • Patrick Swanson – business development for KLC Financial
  • Rhonda Van Vark – senior business analyst at KLC Financial

KLC Financial now employs eight CLFPs, which makes up 57% of its workforce.

“Aside from the personal reward of joining an elite group, it is important that we in the leasing industry continue to self-regulate in an otherwise unregulated field,” Keepman said. “The CLFP education, exam and designation affords us as leasing professionals the opportunity to better ourselves and our colleagues to promote healthy development, growth and continued success.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers and peers in the equipment finance industry.
