Marnie Gerkhardt


As the Communities & Accounts Manager, Marnie shepherds and advances Filene’s prestigious i3 (ideas, innovation, implementation) program and alpha lab. By collaborating with inquisitive minds, she perpetually absorbs insights and asks tough questions that contribute to Filene's rich history of testing and delivering new ideas, products, and services to consumer finance institutions and credit unions around the world.

From 2011 through 2014 Marnie managed all Filene events and communities (Fellows, Research Council, and imembers) as the communities project manager. Prior to Filene, Marnie was the director of client relations and marketing for a representative at an insurance and investment company. She earned a BBA-Marketing at the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater. 

In her free time, she's in pursuit of the perfect bite, harnessing her inner zen during a yoga class, or soaking up the #theroolife
