Rosanne Wilson, a former board member of the American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers, passed away last week, according to an announcement from the AACFB.
Wilson first became involved with the AACFB, then known as the NAELB, in 2005 when she became treasurer on the board of directors. She would go on to chair the membership committee and serve on several other committees for the organization. The AACFB later named Wilson a lifetime member, and in 2015, the organization named her the first winner of the AACFB President’s Award.
Outside of the AACFB, Wilson was the founder of 1st Independent Leasing, which she launched in 1990 following more than a decade at Transamerica Financial Services. She attained the Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) and Best Practices Broker (BPB) designations during her career and was a past president of the board of the CLFP Foundation in addition to serving on the advisory board of Leasing News, which named her one of the “Most Influential Women in Leasing” in 2009.
According to the AACFB, Wilson is survived by her husband, children and grandchildren. The organization also announced that a private memorial service will be held for Wilson at a future date.
