Cari Kellen, BFA™

Marketing Director

With over 20 years of marketing experience, I can certainly say that my former experience has led me to where I am working today. I worked in the marketing department at the corporate office at First Federal Bank and gained a lot of valuable experience especially going through the process of changing the bank’s name to Vantus Bank. Along with advertising and designing all marketing collateral, I organized and managed all of the company events for 14 branches. My background with events planning, promotions, advertising campaigns, direct mail and email campaigns and public relations is an asset to this position. I am excited that I get to dive right in and organize our Advisory Board Meetings, Client Appreciation Car Show, Lunch and Learns, Donuts with Don, Live Speaking Seminars, Charity Golf Classic and much more. I feel I have found my home here at EFS Group and I work with a wonderful group of people that are just like family. I love people and getting to know them and help them in any way that I can. I love it when I make someone’s day. Working with our clients is so rewarding. They put their trust in our organization and we keep growing and continue to help people with their financial goals. I have 2 sons Colten, 19 and Caleb, 15 and we have found our home in LeMars after having lived in Sioux City for 15 years. We enjoy working out at the YMCA, golfing and boating together. I am a Siouxland Chamber Ambassador and volunteer at the Pier Center for Autism, Mid-Step Services, Crittenton Center and Camp High Hopes. I also belong to the Cosmopolitan Club. I love to give back to our community and I look forward to all of the opportunities and friendships that will develop.
