CLFP Foundation Adds 15 New CLFPs

The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation reported that 15 individuals recently passed the eight-hour online proctored CLFP exam, including:

  • Richard Blair, CLFP – Vice President, CIT (a division of First Citizens Bank)
  • Alexis Chacchia, CLFP – Vice President of Operations, Premier Financial Services
  • Joseph Enevoldsen, CLFP – Director of Implementation Services, JDR Solutions
  • Nicole Floge, CLFP – Vice President of Organization Development and Working Capital, Taycor Financial
  • Mary Griser, CLFP – Director of Business Development, Taycor Financial
  • Carrie Guire, CLFP – Equipment Finance Sales Support Specialist, Arvest Equipment Finance
  • James Howard, CLFP – Vice President of Finance Operations, APPROVE
  • Janet Jonas, CLFP – Funding Manager, Alliance Funding Group
  • Angela LeMaire, CLFP – Documentation and Funding Supervisor, Ascentium Capital
  • Kathy Massey, CLFP – Credit Analyst III, Ascentium Capital
  • Kelley McArdle, CLFP – Strategic Account Manager, CIT (a division of First Citizens Bank)
  • Jesbaan Morales, CLFP – Credit Analyst II, Taycor Financial
  • Trupti Patel, CLFP – Program Manager of US Portfolio Management Transformation, DLL
  • Sydney Stone, CLFP Associate – Title Administrator, North Mill Equipment Finance
  • Brent Ver Ploeg, CLFP – Vendor Finance Program Manager, DLL

“I have found great satisfaction in my leasing career; however, I am very aware of the lack of complete understanding in the industry, even by long-time staff,” Chacchia, who attended an in-person Academy for Lease and Finance Professionals hosted by Beacon Funding in November, said. “The CLFP Foundation provides an avenue for a leasing employee to become a career leasing professional. 1st Financial Bank USA’s acquisition of Premier has afforded us the opportunity to set our personnel on this path, with training and certification being the first steps to a promising and growing career.”

“Being a strategic leader, I’m always striving to continually grow and learn,” Patel, who attended an ALFP hosted by DLL in December, said. “I chose to pursue the reputable CLFP certification to strengthen my knowledge and understanding of the broader concepts in the equipment leasing and finance industry. It helped me learn more about the different products and functions that I have not been closely involved with in my current or previous roles.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers and peers in the commercial equipment finance industry. There are Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates located throughout the United States (including Puerto Rico), Canada, India, Africa and Australia.
