Vice President – Accounting, Finance and Investment
Having gotten to know Devcon and Gary Filizetti as his client while working as a Certified Public Accountant for KPMG, Bret Sisney, Vice President – Accounting, Finance and Investment – knew exactly what to say when Filizetti mentioned in 1988 that Devcon needed a new Controller. “How about me?” Sisney asked.
“It was a great opportunity to work for a great company,” Sisney said.
In addition to accounting, banking and insurance, Sisney’s role as Controller included managing human resources (HR) and information technology (IT). He also oversees Devcon’s investments, including the firm’s pension and profit-sharing plans, and development projects. He became principal in 1995, and officially took the title of Vice President in 2000.
During his days as a CPA, Sisney developed a specialty in auditing real estate and construction companies, although his experience with high-tech clients has been invaluable in negotiating contracts for Devcon.
Sisney earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Santa Clara University in 1980. He is a member of the California State Society of Certified Public Accountants, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Construction/Financial Manager Association.
