New! The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals' Handbook

The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation is the preeminent credential for equipment leasing and finance 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. 

This book provides an in-depth analysis of the topics covered in the CLFP Body of Knowledge and exam for CLFP certification.


Framework for Understanding equipment finance technology

Finally, a box top for all of the pieces of the Equipment Finance Software Puzzle. For years, I have been drawing the same picture on client whiteboards to help them see and understand how the software pieces fit together in leasing and lending businesses.

In collaboration with Kristian Dolan of Tamarack Consulting, we created this guide to demystify the technology needed to operate an Equipment Finance (“EF”) company by providing a foundational framework for understanding equipment finance technology.  This guide will help you make informed decisions about your technology investments.


Expand your thinking about the future of the Industry

A mind expanding experience, I had the pleasure of helping a group of equipment finance industry executives to stretch their thinking about the future of the industry through design and facilitation of the 2017 Industry Future Council (IFC) as well as significantly contributing to the IFC report for the Equipment Leasing & Finance Association. 

"Successful industry leaders won’t use 2017 thinking to plan for 2025."

Deb excels not only as a technology strategist but also as a facilitator, coach, and collaborator. Her enthusiasm for technology and finance is contagious along with her can-do attitude.

Deb will challenge you to find new ways to solve complex problems and break the status quo. She is able to effectively analyze and document as-is processes and quickly pinpoint inefficiencies and bottlenecks.
Her direct communication style is a breath of fresh air and encourages honest and candid feedback without unnecessary filters. For personal development, Deb will improve your effectiveness through the use of conscious focus, prioritization, and time management. I highly recommend her.

Thanks again for the great discussion today. It was truly awesome!   I’m hoping we can do more of those sessions in the future as I benefit hugely from them.  You help me think in ways I rarely get to.

[We] engaged Deb to help us examine a very complex process for providing time sensitive external reporting to a very large number of varied external stakeholders. In a very short time, Deb was able to get familiar with our industry and the nuances of the reporting issues. Her thorough and comprehensive approach to analyzing complex issues enabled us to identify numerous attainable objectives for overall process improvement and has generated significant improvement in this very complex multi-function activity. We highly recommend Deb’s practical and insightful approach and will use her skills again on future projects.
