The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation presented the 2019 Cindy Spurdle Award of Excellence to Rob Boyer, CLFP at the NEFA Fall Funding Symposium in Atlanta, GA.  The award was created in 2012 to acknowledge the CLFP who has contributed the most to the industry and best represents the CLFP ideals for the year. Nominees are submitted by the CLFP community and the final winner is decided by the CLFP Board of Directors.

Kevin Prykull, CLFP, Vice President of the CLFP Board of Directors states, “The Cindy Spurdle Award of Excellence is befitting for Rob who provides ongoing commitment and service to the CLFP certification, our Foundation, and the equipment finance and leasing industry.  I have had the opportunity to work directly with Rob on the CLFP Board over the last couple of years.  His insights, leadership and thoughtfulness helped propel the exam, certification and our Foundation to new heights.  Rob clearly makes a difference, akin to the excellence of Cindy Spurdle for which this award is in honor.  Rob is a consummate professional and represents the CLFP in the very best light.”

“It is truly a great honor to be recognized by the CLFP Foundation for the work that I did while a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors,” said Rob Boyer. “The CLFP Foundation is unique in the sense that it works to build a better industry by its focus on developing enhanced knowledge and ethical conduct at the individual professional level. I found the CLFP’s mission and purpose very compelling and I am happy that I was able to have a positive impact on its growth and development.”
