Yo, I’m Ben Niehues IV.
I’m an innovation architect based in downtown N Kansas City.
I grew up in Corning, Kansas; population 163. I studied at Kansas State University, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. My wife Hannah and I have two boys, Bernard (aka V) and Chancelor, and a Pomeranian who only responds to the words treat and Yogi.
I’m currently working at CommunityAmerica Credit Union in the Innovation Lab as a Solutions Architect. We strive to improve the financial peace of mind of Kansas Citians through user-centered design. I also work closely with local individuals and organizations on their digital projects.
My experience includes learning in both bootstrap and rapid growth start-ups, as well as the corporate environment. An investigative thinker with creative confidence, I enjoy working above the problem and making change happen.
