UMB Culture

There’s more to our story

There is more to our story than banking. We are a collection of people who are more than the sum of our parts. From a conversation shared over lunch to a new business opening, it’s the everyday moments—big and small—that create meaning.



We take our company culture very seriously, and the passion, dedication and care we all express every day is how we have succeeded for more than a century.



We are a relationship-driven organization, and through conversation and collaboration we design our solutions to meet our clients’ unique needs



We encourage and support community connections through volunteering, leading and giving through donations and sponsorships.


We are our associates

The shared moments that turn into life-long friendships.

We are our clients

Celebrating success and facing challenges together.

We are our communities

Building our futures together.


“Everyone is excited to help grow the business. We don’t feel like we’re just getting assignments; we all feel like part of the growth.”

– Amy Small, Executive Director, Institutional Custody


“Not once have I felt like an outsider or like I didn’t belong. Everyone has a community here.”

– Trina Gutierrez, Vice President/Commercial Banking Program Manager

Accountability is part of every decision we make, and we infuse our values of integrity, trust, strength, commitment and diversity into our core operating strategies.


Diversity and inclusion

There's no magic way to ensure an inclusive environment; it's something we work towards, learn from and redefine every day. We take steps to maintain an open dialogue and take time to truly get to know the people we work with on a deeper level.


An employer with heart

Building a welcoming and enriching company culture is serious business at UMB. Our team is resilient and entrepreneurial, embracing the same spirit that gives America its enduring strength.


Community involvement

We believe it’s our responsibility to give back to the communities we serve. We are committed to being a strong community partner by investing our time, resources and talent to organizations and issues that matter to us. We showcase our community relationships and recognize our associates who are making a difference.
