After a little more than a year at the helm of Umpqua Bank's wealth management business, Kelly Johnson can point to some big accomplishments — but also to all the work he has left to do.
Johnson arrived in January 2009 to head the newly created wealth management business. Since then, the bank, a unit of Umpqua Holdings Corp., has created a private bank. And its retail brokerage unit has gone on a hiring spree that has helped bring in more than $1 billion of new assets under management. The wealth management division is now approaching $2 billion under management overall.
