Rose Kilsdonk

VP Communications, Community First Credit Union

Rose Kilsdonk is an innovative builder, curious learner, and exceptional explorer. Her superpower is “envisioning things that don’t exist yet and blueprinting that vision so others are excited about the journey.” This trait has been beneficial as she’s launched award-winning intranets, websites, and microsites for financial, educational, B2B, & B2C organizations.

Rose’s career path has been full of adventures. From starting as a graphic artist to customer service, regional, national, and new business sales, to operations, marketing, and communications – decades of experiencing diverse roles and industry fueled her passion for making work meaningful. Inside and outside of work, she’s found her jam by connecting with people and helping them see their next. As a board member for Women in Technology – Wisconsin, she actively mentors young women and champions that every role ‘owns technology,’ even communication geeks.

In November of 2021, Rose was challenged to create a new internet experience for Community First Credit Union. Simpplr quickly stood out as the best partner/platform for their needs. WayFinder, a new employee experience, was born in April 2022. Recently Community First entered WayFinder into their industry’s award competition. It won – not only a CUNA Diamond Award but also achieved the Category’s Best status. Community First Credit Union is a member-owned financial cooperative with over $5.2 billion in assets and 25 full-service branches.
