We are proud to announce that Begonya Klumb, UMB Healthcare Services CEO, has been named one of the 25 Women to Watch in banking by American Banker for the third consecutive year. This award recognizes the banking industry’s most powerful women identified by not only her exceptional career, but through her inspiration to the industry, community and within her company.

People matter most. This value was instilled in Begonya from an early age by her grandmother, who is one of her biggest inspirations. In the video below, Begonya shares the impact her grandmother made on her life. This video was recently shared at the American Banker Honoree Reception held in New York.

Under Begonya’s direction, UMB Healthcare Services has grown to be one of the nation’s foremost administrators of health savings accounts and related products. Last year, UMB Healthcare Services out-paced the industry with 37 percent growth compared to the industry standard of 22 percent.
