Yo, I’m Ben Niehues IV.
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. We strive to deliver financial peace of mind to Kansas Citians by developing a deep understanding of their needs to find gaps and innovation opportunities. I also work closely with local individuals and organizations to grow their product offerings.
My experience includes learning in both bootstrap and rapid growth start-ups, as well as the corporate environment. A curious thinker with creative confidence, I enjoy creating product-led solutions that improve lives through human-centered design.
