The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation Board of Directors announced in a press release 38 new equipment finance professionals who recently gained the CLFP Designation, including four LeaseQ employees. Those employees are Sean Evans, Director of Partnerships; Patrick O’Connor, Director of Business Development; Max Tirey, Finance Associate; and David Trost, Director of Transportation Finance. Based on their years of experience within the industry, both Sean and Max received the title of Certified Lease & Finance Professional, while Patrick and David received the title of Certified Lease & Finance Associate.
The CLFP designation is the preeminent credential for equipment leasing and finance professionals who have demonstrated competency through testing of knowledge, continuing education and a commitment to their business practices and dedication to the industry. Every CLFP has at least two years in the equipment finance industry and has passed a rigorous 8-hour exam.
The CLFP is the only certification for the equipment finance industry and there are currently only 543 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates in the United States, Canada and Australia.
“It’s a huge honor for a company of our size to now have multiple CLFPs, and Sean, Pat, Max and David couldn’t be more deserving of the recognition,” said Vernon Tirey, CEO and co-founder of LeaseQ. “LeaseQ’s internal teams and clients greatly benefit from this certification of proven expertise in equipment leasing and finance.”
