2019 Rising Star Award Winner

Kristin Romer

Kristin Romero

Vice President of Marketing
Baton Rouge Telco FCU
Baton Rouge, LA

This award recognizes rising professionals with two years or less of experience in the credit union industry. Romero stepped into her role as VP of Marketing without a background in financial services, and has since jumped headfirst into advocating for the credit union movement. Since her first day, Romero has been the driving force behind many of Baton Rouge Telco FCU’s strides towards success. When she interviewed for her position, Baton Rouge Telco FCU was going through a period of transition – without an established brand, and with virtually no consumer awareness, Romero knew she had her work cut out for her. By continuing to challenge the way that they operated, Romero was able to adopt new technologies and processes at her credit union, creating a more accessible, member-focused institution for her community. In addition to contributing at her own credit union, she has contributed heavily online in her Councils Community and beyond. By continually offering her guidance and answering others’ questions, she regularly assists others when they need it.
