This week’s guest on the Treasury Career Corner Podcast Todd Yoder, Director of Global Corporate Treasury at Fluor Corporation, has worked across some of the largest engineering, procurement and construction projects in the world. Founded in 1912 and headquartered in Irving, Texas, the Fluor Corporation is one of the world’s largest engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance companies. It has been responsible for some of the world’s most complex projects, from bridges to diamond mines to oil refineries and pipelines, Fluor operates across six continents and has been listed in Fortune Magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies" for 19 consecutive years.

Prior to Fluor, Todd worked at Capital Bancorp in commercial credit before moving to Catalyst Marketing Design Inc. He then joined Zimmer Holdings Inc where he was involved in a wide range of global treasury responsibilities. He was eventually promoted to oversee the financial planning and analysis for Zimmer’s Reconstructive Global Hips and Trauma divisions. He also worked for Anthem, one of the largest health benefits companies before moving to Fluor. Todd has been given multiple awards for his work at Fluor for his corporate treasury strategy. In 2019 he was given Fluor’s prestigious Tappan Award for being a key team member on the Gordie Howe International Bridge. Todd is also known for being a treasury technology expert and is at the forefront of utilizing AI, data visualisation and robotic process automation within multi-national corporate treasury to add value to the business.
