JUN 13, 2019 - 6:55 am
Wintrust Specialty Finance’s team now consists 100% of CLFPs. Last month Chelsea Wood, CLFP, WSF funding manager, and Jodie Masciola, CLFP, WSF credit officer, both successfully passed their CLFP exams during an Academy for Leasing & Finance Professionals and CLFP Exam hosted in Southern California by WSF. In doing so, the entire WSF team now has the CLFP designation.
“Wintrust is committed to having the best and brightest team members in the industry,” said David Normandin, Wintrust specialty Finance president and CEO. “I have been an advocate of the CLFP Foundation for many years, as it sets the standard of excellence in our industry. Successful passing of the CLFP exam has been a goal of the teams that I have led for many years, and I am very proud of the incredible team at WSF and their commitment to excellence, including being a part of an exclusive community of CLFPs. Jodie and Chelsea invested a great deal of time and focus to accomplish this impressive goal. Congratulations!”
“I have been involved in the industry for many years, and the CLFP designation is the pinnacle of achievement in my professional career,” Masciola said.
Wood added, “The process of studying and passing the CLFP exam has increased my knowledge and has equipped me to increase my success as a leasing professional.”
Wintrust Specialty Finance is a division of Beverly Bank & Trust Company., a Wintrust Community Bank.
