“The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation is deeply honored to receive almost $7,000 from the NEFA’s Chris Walker Educational Fund (CWEF),” said Brian Schonfeld, CLFP president of the CLFP Board of Directors. “As Chris was a longtime supporter of both the equipment leasing industry and the CLFP Foundation, we hope he would be pleased that such beneficial initiatives as these are being done in his name to raise the quality of the equipment leasing and financing industry as a whole.”
Reid Raykovich, CLFP executive director of the CLFP Foundation stated that the Foundation is a direct beneficiary of a $4,500 grant to be used to have The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook professionally edited. The Foundation will also benefit from almost $2,500 in funds awarded to individuals to be used towards their pursuit of the CLFP designation.
The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 230 Certified Lease & Finance Professionals throughout the world.
The National Equipment Finance Association’s Chris Walker Education Fund was created shortly after Walker passed away in 2011. It was created to allow the many NEFA Members, CLFP members, and other industry professionals make a donation to honor and continue Chris’ great service to this industry.
