“I chose to pursue the CLFP designation to show personal growth, commitment and expertise in our industry. I was seeing the designation behind many of the individuals that I highly regard and respect as industry ‘opinion leaders.’ This also motivated me to participate,” Wehe said. “That was a rigorous exam! This certification is a commitment to a huge knowledge base. Very professionally put together and organized. The academy was fantastic and the teachers top notch! I am a big advocate for CLFP, and I look forward to getting involved.”
“As an attorney, I pursued the CLFP designation to demonstrate that in addition to the legal aspects of equipment financing, I have a comprehensive understanding of the business as a whole, including credit, tax, accounting and pricing,” Bramer said.
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.
