Job Description

Be part of something more.

A majority of our time is spent "at work." We believe that time most meaningful when it's spent around people who care about you and who challenge you. We hire people who know how to make good decisions, because we won't be constantly looking over your shoulder-you'll be empowered to do what's right for our customers. Most importantly, we're a partner. We partner with our associates to help them thrive personally and professionally. We partner with our communities and the organizations that support them. And, we partner with our customers to create an experience they won't find elsewhere.

Are you ready to be part of something more?

You're more than a means to an end-a way to help us meet the bottom line. UMB isn't comprised of workers, but of people who care about their work, one another and their community. Expect more than the status quo. At UMB, you can expect more heart. You'll be valued for exactly who you are and encouraged to support causes you care about. Expect more trust. We want you to do the right thing, no matter what. And, expect more opportunity. UMBers are known for having multiple careers here and having their voices heard.

UMB's success is directly impacted by the growth of our Commercial Real Estate loan portfolio. The team consists of Portfolio Managers, Underwriters, and Relationship Managers. This team manages Commercial Real Estate throughout its life - developing meaningful connections with management of the companies they serve. The vast majority of Commercial Real Estate loans include construction and refinancing of multi-family, office and industrial projects. Always mindful of the changes in the Commercial Real Estate industry, etc., over time that might create a change in their financial service needs. The team takes great pride in seeing a Commercial Real Estate loan project through it's initial planning stage to completion.

The Relationship Manager II performs as the sales liaison to new Commercial Real Estate loan customers and deals. Always aware of market data and trends in Commercial Real Estate, you will source new deals in a variety of commercial verticals, but mainly multi-family, office and industrial. You will engage in construction loans, interim loans, permanent loans, and refinancing of real estate loans. To better understand the client needs, historical cash flow data related to the performance, and Real Estate market and industry data to qualify the loan requests. As loan opportunities are sourced, you will underwrite the collateral property, market and guarantor; structure the loan; prepare the loan approval package; present the loan request to loan committee; and negotiate and document the loan to close new business. A big part in booking new deals is the amount of oversight you will have responsibility, reviewing monthly construction requests to ensure construction remains on budget and on schedule; in conjunction with an assigned Portfolio Manager, monitor collateral property performance to ensure loan performance. You have the ability to help clients achieve their financial dreams, stream line business processes and help them better understand their working cash flow needs.

Working for UMB is about collaborative spirit with internal stakeholders, entrepreneurial pride, encouraging creativity, rewarding success, having fun winning business, community involvement, and working directly with the decision makers.
