The equipment finance community recently lost a great one.


Mrs. Green’s contributions to the industry were impactful. After becoming a Certified Lease & Finance Professional in 1999, she helped promote her organization by mentoring many future CLFPs––contributing to its body of knowledge, and serving on the CLFP Board of Directors. Shannon also actively participated in the Equipment Lease & Finance Association (ELFA) and the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA) serving on panels, participating in session presentations, and spearheading annual ELFA LeasePAC company campaigns. Most notably, it was Shannon’s passion for promoting women in leasing that many will remember her for most. She helped encourage many young women who have gone on to become leaders––thanks to her mentorship and demonstrated passion within this industry.

Shannon lost a sudden and swift battle with cancer on December 25th ––leaving behind a husband and two children.
