Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

Thomas J. Wood III announced on December 1, 2015, that he is resigning from the Board of Directors of UMB Financial Corporation (the “Company”) effective immediately.

Mr. Wood is not resigning because of a disagreement with the Company, known to an executive officer of the Company (as defined in 17 CFR 240.3b-7), on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies, or practices. Mr. Wood will reach the age of 70 before the 2016 annual meeting of shareholders and, consistent with the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, would not have been expected to stand for re-election as a director at that time.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
