Ivory Consulting announced that all seven of its employees that recently sat for the Certified Lease & Finance Professional Foundation (CLFP) examination are now certified.
The newly certified professionals are:
Jim Alnas-Benson, operations and technical support manager
Phil Davidson, senior software engineer
Chris Fischer, quality assurance analyst
Fred Fischer, president and CTO
David Holmgren, director of quality assurance
Matthew Ivory, training support specialist
Martin Klotzman, marketing and operations manager
“I took the CLFP course and exam to better understand the language of our customers — the nuances and correct meaning of terms that are commonly used in leasing but sometimes used imprecisely,” said Davidson. “The lessons gave real world examples to understand and apply the principles taught, so I have gained a better understanding of the multiple interlocking worlds of our customers and the services they provide.”
Alnas-Benson added, “At Ivory we have been doing pricing for 33 years, but studying the CLFP curriculum has helped us better understand all the different aspects of the industry we serve.”
The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently over 340 Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates throughout the world.
