“I had known about the CLFP designation for many years and chose to get this designation for two reasons,” Tonya DiGregorio, CLFP – vice president at Winfield dba Harry Fry & Assoc., said. “First, my company is a family business, in which I am taking a larger roll. I looked at this designation as a way to enhance my career. Second, I looked at this as a way to set an example for my children. You can never stop learning and achieving. Being a working mother and company owner with two young children, I felt I never really had the time to prepare. My children are now 11 and 13, so a bit more self-sufficient (maybe!). I felt like I needed to just do it. So, I scheduled the class and planned to take the exam a week after the class. It was good for my children to see me preparing and trying to achieve more in my career. They were the first ones to ask if I passed. My son told me that if I didn’t pass, I needed to keep trying until I did.”

“My connection with CLFP has been made for many years, even since I was still in Mauritius. I have been mentored by Sudhir Amembal, CLFP, since 2006 and then thanks to Cindy Spurdle, got a copy of the then Certified Lease Professionals’ (CLP) Handbook to help prepare me for the exams. This idea was dropped following challenges for proctoring the CLP exams from Mauritius,” Maganlall Jugurnauth, CLFP – CEO of Infinite Capital Group, said. “This is now history and a dream come true for me. I have been involved in the leasing industry in Sub-Saharan Africa, for almost 25 years, leading independent regional and international leasing companies in Mauritius, as a leasing industry advocate through the leasing association and a leasing consultant for the last ten years. I have always wanted to make sure that I am recognized as a true leasing professional and moving to Canada few years ago, brought me closer to the CLFP designation. The CLFP does give me that kind of recognition and I am really proud and honored to be a member of the CLFP family, now.”
