Joshua Muldoon, CLFP from Taycor Financial states, “I chose to pursue the designation to simply further my knowledge of the industry as a whole and test myself. I predominantly work within sales, and I felt like I wanted to increase my knowledge of the other parts of the Equipment Financing Industry. This is going to help my career greatly, I think to truly be an asset to the industry it is important to be well-rounded; the CLFP offers the best way to achieve that.”

“[The] CLFP allowed me to expand knowledge and skills beyond my daily responsibilities. I strongly believe that the CLFP designation will help me to be a great asset to my employer and customers. Giving back to the industry as an experienced and well-educated professional is something that I care about.” shares Aleksandra Karcz, CLFP from Huntington National Bank. “The CLFP designation will allow me to be a better resource for the customers to support their equipment finance business needs and identify new opportunities.”
