UMB opens Scottsdale banking center

UMB Bank Arizona, a subsidiary of UMB Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: UMBF) announced the opening of a new full-service banking center in Scottsdale. Positioned in Kierland Commons, the new UMB Bank is located at 16210 North Scottsdale Road.

In addition to full-service consumer banking, the Scottsdale location will include private banking, investment and wealth management services and commercial banking. Customer amenities will consist of a drive up ATM and night depository.

Given UMB’s commitment to sustainability, the banking center is seeking LEED certification. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green-building rating system is a national benchmark for environmentally friendly, high-performance buildings.

The building was constructed according to the standards set forth in the LEED certification guidelines. The standards implemented include: daylighting and lighting controls, a highly efficient heating and cooling system, reflective roofing and concrete paving, using recycled and regional materials, recycling on site during and after construction, water-saving plumbing fixtures and the use of low-emitting materials such as paint, carpet and sealants.

“UMB offers an array of banking services with expertise our clients can count on,” said Jim Patterson, chief executive officer, UMB Bank-Arizona.  “Our continued expansion in Scottsdale and Phoenix will allow UMB to be a convenient banking alternative.”

The Kierland Commons banking center will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. To contact the Kierland Commons UMB Bank, call (480) 315-6800 or visit the UMB website at
