The Academy for Lease & Finance Professionals was offered earlier this month, the first of 2016, by the Certified Lease & Finance Professional Foundation (CLFP). Stearns Bank in Albany, MN hosted the event. All of the individuals who sat for the exam, eight in total, passed and now hold the CLFP designation.
According to the CLFP, “The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment lease and finance industry.”
Two of the successful participants were Marc Keepman, President and CEO of KLC Financial, and Spencer Thomas, Executive Vice President of KLC Financial.
What is a Certified Lease & Finance professional?
The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation is the preeminent credential for equipment leasing and financing professionals throughout the world who have demonstrated competency through testing of knowledge, continuing education and a commitment to their business practices and dedication to the industry.
When Marc Keepman was asked why he chose to pursue the CLFP designation, he responded, “I chose to become a CLFP because we, as an industry, are raising the bar in three critical areas of commercial application: our performance, our ethics and our self-regulation. This is a good way to accomplish all three and is the way of the future.”
