Seneca Creates and Fills a New Position


Company Press Release

Seneca is proud to announce and welcome Chris Verderber to the newly created position of VP-Manufacturing.

This is an exciting addition to Seneca and its manufacturing operations. One that adds bench strength to their current management group including operations, safety and HR.

Verderber comes to Seneca with over twenty years of wood products experience, the last ten managing a sawmill complex in Northern California for the Collins Companies. His passion for lumber manufacturing can already be seen with his time on the mill floors, his inquisitive nature as he begins to understand Seneca’s manufacturing process, and his support of Seneca’s unique approach with a balance of safety, quality and production.

Beyond day-to-day operations, Verderber will assist Todd Payne, Seneca’s CEO, in charting a course forward that will continue to build upon Seneca’s automation and technology efficiencies at existing facilities along with an eye toward the future. A future that keeps Seneca relevant, competitive and an industry leader.
