Mr. Harris attended the ALFP hosted by Wintrust Specialty Finance in Irvine, CA and stated, “Going through the ALFP course and the CLFP exam was such a great experience. The material covers a wide range of topics about all aspects of the equipment leasing business; I highly recommend the class and test for anyone involved in the industry. I chose to pursue the CLFP designation so that I could challenge myself, while also learning how to better serve my company and clients. I believe that by increasing my knowledge base specific to the leasing industry, I have improved my ability to bring value to all constituents involved in the process from origination to funding to portfolio management.”

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 754 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates. For more information, visit http://www.CLFPFoundation.org.
