Quality Leasing, the commercial equipment financing subsidiary of the Tom Wood Group, added Andre Clifford, CLFP, to its sales team as a sales consultant. Clifford will be working remotely from Quality Leasing’s satellite office in Harleysville, PA.
Clifford has more than seven years of experience in financial sales, underwriting and customer service experience. In his new role, Clifford will be tasked with expanding and managing his current book of third-party originator relationships and augmenting Quality Leasing’s business equipment financing reach and customer service program.
Prior to joining Quality Leasing, Clifford was vice president of BankFinancial’s small-ticket equipment finance division. Before that, he held positions in sales, underwriting, operations and customer service at Bryn Mawr Funding and Customers Banks. Clifford has been actively involved in both the American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers and the National Equipment Finance Association since 2017 and earned his Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation in 2018. With the addition of Clifford, Quality Leasing now has five CLFPs on its staff.
“We’re thrilled to bring Andre onto the team,” G. Paul Fogle, CLFP, managing director of Quality Leasing, said. “His stellar industry reputation as a knowledgeable and hard-working salesperson truly embodies Quality’s core values.”
“The entire Quality workforce has been so welcoming,” Clifford said. “I’m ready and looking forward to putting up big numbers this year.”
Indianapolis-based Quality Leasing recently reported that it has achieved six consecutive months of company-record-breaking funding, with the company posting its highest monthly funding volume in its 65-year history in March.
“The company’s adoption of new technology — including Salesforce, DocuSign and E-Notarize — has pushed the whole team to operate more efficiently than ever,” Bradon Marshall, sales manager for Quality Leasing, said. “Andre’s finance experience, energy and tech savvy are just right for the direction Quality is moving.”
