FEI Twin Cities is already renowned for its strong board and dedicated volunteers, and it is continuously growing and evolving. While growth can emerge from a variety of sources, FEI Twin Cities is intentionally blazing forward and upsetting the status quo by becoming the first chapter to hire an Executive Director.

As the primary external face and voice of the organization, the Executive Director will lead with passion and ambition to promote FEI Twin Cities’ mission of advancing the success of senior-level financial executives, their organizations, and the profession. FEI Twin Cities partnered with CohenTaylor Executive Search Services in the search for its inaugural Executive Director and the organization enthusiastically selected Rosanne Bump to lead the chapter.

Rosanne Bump is an accomplished management professional with demonstrated success in process and systems development, long-term strategic planning, public speaking, collaboration, relationship building, marketing and membership management. Ms. Bump most recently served as President/CEO of the Saint Paul Festival and Heritage Foundation (SPFHF). Every year, the SPFHF puts on the 10-day Saint Paul Winter Carnival, as well as the Cinco de Mayo West Side Saint Paul festival.

Prior to her role at SPFHF, Ms. Bump was President/CEO of the River Falls Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau in River Falls, Wisconsin. In that role, she supported the business community through development of networking events, educational workshops and leadership programs in addition to planning a variety of community events.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from Augsburg College and her M.B.A. from University of Wisconsin – River Falls. CohenTaylor is excited to see FEI Twin Cities thrive under Ms. Bump’s leadership and expertise. Please join us in welcoming Ms. Bump to her new Executive Director role with the FEI Twin Cities Chapter.
