Christine Pierson, an executive vice president in consumer services at UMB Financial Corp., is one of “25 Women to Watch” in banking, according to a national publication.

The American Banker tapped Pierson even though she has only four years to her credit in the industry. It says the watch list includes “emerging female talent in banking and industry veterans who have taken on new roles within the past year.” Pierson previously had been in sales and marketing at AT&T and Bayer.

In selecting Pierson, the industry-focused journal noted a program she started that increased customers’ use of self-service banking options, such as mobile and online, through one-on-one meetings.
