Verlin Yoder

VP of Finance

You might say that Verlin was born into the construction industry. When he wasn’t helping on the farm he stayed busy in construction, building his first shed after school hours when he was only 9 years old. Along with his five brothers and three sisters his family moved a lot, between several states and Costa Rica. At 21 he decided to leave his family and head to where he heard everything was bigger - Texas. His passion for quality and excellence led him to join Ulrich in 2009.

Verlin’s critical thinking and left brain personality helped him rise through the ranks to his current position as Vice President of Finance. When he is not watching the bottom line Verlin spends his time enjoying the outdoors, from hunting and fishing to cycling, and most recently completing the Cowtown Marathon.
