CFA Honors Top Commercial Finance Pros at 40 Under 40 Awards


On September 20, the Commercial Finance Association 40 Under 40 Awards honored the achievements of rising stars in the commercial finance industry. Steven Gold, president and CEO of Allied Financial received the CFA Leadership Award and Rob Frohwein, co-founder and head of Kabbage gave the keynote address, sharing the ups and downs of his career and what he learned along the way.

Now in its third year, the Awards celebrate the achievements of young professionals in the commercial finance industry — movers and shakers who exemplify true excellence in their careers and who bring a strong voice and commitment to the industry at large.

“CFA’s 40 Under 40 Award has quickly become a sought-after award which can have a significant impact on one’s career,” said Jeffrey Goldrich of North Mill Capital, chair of the 2018 Awards Committee. “This award is not only a reflection of the recipients, but also of their nominators and organizations. They should all be very proud.”
