First American Equipment Finance Now Employs Most CLPs

The Certified Lease Professional (CLP) Foundation announced that First American Equipment Finance now employs the most CLPs (27) after six individuals successfully passed the CLP Exam. In addition, they employ the first CLP Associate which is the designation offered to those with only two years’ experience in the equipment finance industry.

The six new CLPs are: Sonia Cliffel, vice president; Jen Fitch, senior vice president; Sandy Grossman, vice president; Christina Lord, assistant vice president; Alfred Quinto, assistant vice president, project manager and Sara Whitford, assistant vice president.

The first CLP Associate is Nick Borkowski, assistant vice president.

When asked why he pursued the CLP designation, Alfred Quinto, CLP stated, “I know that the knowledge and information gained by studying for the CLP will me make more rounded as a leasing professional. It is one thing to be in the industry, learning about one aspect of the business, and it is another to be able to have an understanding of every aspect of the business. As a Certified Lease Professional, I am confident that I am able to better serve my internal and external clients and be a better consultant for them.”

Bill Verhelle, CEO First American Equipment Finance, a City National Bank stated, “We greatly value our relationship with the Certified Lease Professional Foundation. The CLP program has become an important part of our employee development program.”
