I'm a Colorado native who joined UCEC in 2015. I owned my own business for 16 years in the construction/dust containment industry. I am grateful for the time I had to do that and I loved it.

I feel lucky to have landed here at UCEC where the owner genuinely cares about his employees and everyone makes me feel welcome. I’m new to this industry and there is much to learn. I look forward to the challenge.

I have three children who bring endless entertainment. My oldest daughter Dani, (who also works at Utility Control and Equipment) is married with two kids of her own. My middle daughter Carley is also married with kids. My 15 year-old son Jonah is a freshman in high school, and recently made the high school lacrosse team. Our family all lives close so we get to spend a good amount of time together supporting our kids and grandkids in sports and school functions.

I was the kid that would take something apart, modify it and put it back together hoping for a different outcome. Luckily for me, my high school had an electronics, digital electronics and robotics program. I took these courses all four years of high school, eventually leading to a victory in a robotics competition.

I was hired in 2007 100 percent green with zero panel experience. Now, although I had no panel shop history, I had plenty of basic electronics knowledge. I started playing guitar when I was 12. By 13 or so, I was taking apart the guitars to try and modify the electronics to give me different sounds.

By 2010 I had received enough mentoring and gained enough experience at UCEC that I was promoted to Production Supervisor. A year or so after that, I was promoted to Production Manager, and a year or so later, promoted to Operations Support Manager.

In addition to electronics, I still enjoy playing the guitar, and I am a foodie. I love cooking with my wife and going to nice restaurants.

I’m an avid traveler and have crossed off a good part of my bucket list: Europe, Mexico, Central and South America along with trips to the Caribbean and Society Islands. My future travel plans include Greece, Portugal, Iceland and the Baltic countries.

I’m a 30-plus-year veteran of the control panel industry. I started in shipping and receiving, learned how to wire panels and later moved into management. I’ve owned and operated three businesses, and spent time in real estate investing. I graduated from Lakewood High and attended the University of Colorado in Denver.

I live in Arvada with my wife Jerri of 28 years and two Siberian Huskies. I enjoy the outdoors, and my hobbies include gym fitness, downhill skiing, mountain biking, hiking and photography.

Teamwork at UCEC is very important, and I work every day to find ways to better communicate with the other departments so we can put out a great product for our customers. I have always said you have to like what you do in order to do a good job and my time here with UCEC proves that theory works.

I am proud to announce that I have been employed with Utility Control and Equipment for a total of nearly 19 years. My time with UCEC has been anything but boring. There is always something new and that keeps my career as a Purchasing Manager exciting.

With more than 26 years in the purchasing field, I have maintained some superb relations with our vendors. I strive to better our relationships so that we receive the products we need in a timely and cost effective manner.

On a personal note, I am a single mother of two grown daughters and a grandmother of five grandchildren with another one on the way. I live on a small farm where ducks, geese and chickens are my constant companions (and alarm clocks!). I enjoy traveling on singles cruises where I have met some fantastic people. I also enjoy traveling with my daughters and grandkids to the Disney parks, and with my sister and our friends to exciting resorts in Mexico.

I am a Colorado Native, who like most Colorado natives, cannot imagine living anywhere else. I grew up in Westminster, graduated from Standley Lake High School, and earned my degree from Colorado State University.

I currently live in Arvada, with my husband Preston of 14 years who is a constant blessing in my life. We have two children (a daughter, 13, and a son, age 9) who are active in competitive sports which keeps our schedules very busy. They are the greatest loves of my life, and my most notable accomplishments.

I have been with UCEC since 2013, and have found a very comfortable home here. I work with amazing people and have a pleasant balance between work and family. I couldn’t ask for better.

After high school, Terry was a journeyman electrician working in the mining and energy fields. He came to work at UCEC in 1981 to work in the Field Services area doing start-ups and field maintenance. A couple of years later, he was given the opportunity to become the panel shop foreman. The last 10 years he has concentrated on his “wheelhouse” quoting jobs, helping customers configure projects and troubleshooting design issues.  

The father of three children, and grandfather to 10, Terry still finds time to enjoy sporting events, the great outdoors and playing cards. He is an “expert” on his hero, Nikola Tesla. Terry likes the new challenges he sees at UCEC, and especially enjoys his interactions and time spent with customers.

According to Paul, he was Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, and within two years his parents corrected the situation and moved to Chicago (Issac Asimov would understand this!). After spending ten plus years in the banking world, he decided to pursue an engineering degree. Paul has been a Control System Designer for UCEC since 1999.

Paul’s outside interests include bicycle repair and maintenance, disc golf, being just a “micron” short of being a concert pianist and spending time with his wife Patti. During the football season, he is still a devoted, and somewhat misguided, Chicago Bears fan.

I love the excitement of the day-to-day of my job, never knowing what is coming through the pipeline. Learning multiple parts of the process from receiving the parts all the way to shipping the panels out is very satisfying and keeps me on my toes.

My journey with UCEC began in 2011. I began as a part-time receptionist in 2011 and was promoted to Operations Support Manager in September 2013. In 2017, I became Project Coordinator. 

I love spending time with family and friends, watching my beautiful daughter play softball and hanging out playing card games. As a Colorado native, I enjoy being outdoors. Whether it’s camping for a long weekend or just going for a drive in the mountains for the day, I will use any excuse to get away. Another great love of mine is animals. Our family adopted a ten-week-old terrier mix in November 2016. Jaxon fit right in and has become a very loved and spoiled family member.

UCEC is a wonderful company to work for and I have really enjoyed being a part of the team.  I have been encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and to express ideas, which has been a great step to building confidence and a sense of belonging. I look forward to being able to continue growing and learning as much as I can.

I first came to UCEC in 2007 as the receptionist. Within that position, I also did the engraving and terminal markers. While continuing these duties, I eventually took over quoting, purchasing and managing the parts orders as well as being back up for the Purchasing Manager. I also did our product returns and insurance benefits as well.

As we grew, we hired others, and I found a new opportunity within the company. I’m now in the Accounting Department and handle accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll and all other credit duties.

I have been married for 33 years. We have two children, Stephanie and Adam, as well as two grandchildren, Evan and Leilah. My interests include reading and decorating, and I may soon get back to painting.

Beginning his career at UCEC in the assembly and wiring area 16 years ago, Evan’s affinity for panel craftsmanship and excellent customer service skills have been instrumental in the UCEC quality experience.

He quickly used his panel building knowledge to learn other important functions such as QC/QA, purchasing, logistics and quotations. He was promoted to Operations Manager in 2011, Vice President of Operations in 2013 and Vice President of Business Operations in 2015.

Evan enjoys spending outdoors time camping with his wife and two kids.  His home brewing hobby keeps him “hopping” as he started tending his own hops vines to “perfect” his Coulter IPA.

Like you, management and operations expert Mark Inboden has worn many hats and seen significant changes throughout his career in the business world. As President and CEO of UCEC, he enjoys his role of mentoring his staff in all aspects of business operations. He is constantly asking his staff, “what does the future of  UCEC look like?”

Mark Inboden

Mark Inboden

Mark came to UCEC in 2001 to help his father-in-law, Chris Kitsos, out for “a few months.”  Shortly after, Chris became ill and Mark began running more of the day-to-day business. By the time Chris passed in 2004, Mark had developed a tremendous appreciation for the business and its customers.

Now in his third decade in the business world, Mark is known for his divergent thinking and creative optimism. His background in management operations at United Banks (1985-1991) and Janus Funds (1991-2000), enables him to leverage large company experiences and practices into a small company landscape.  

Unlike many CEOs, putting the focus on the “customer experience” and not some “company metric” is Mark’s mantra. Mark has seen his people respond to his company goals in exceptional ways. He thoroughly enjoys seeing the next generation succeed, as they are the future leaders in training.

He counts among his many blessings a great wife and two “wonderfully ambitious” children.  Competitive golf at the “senior” level consumes a great deal of his free time. In fact, he spends part of his day thinking, “how can I make the company more profitable and reduce my handicap at the same time?”
