Who We Are

Daisy Pereira

Senior Vice President of Construction

“I do what it takes to get my projects done,” says Daisy Pereira, Senior Vice President of Construction. “We want our clients to feel proud of what we have accomplished together.”

Since joining Devcon in 1986 as a Senior Project Manager, and during her previous decade in the construction industry, Pereira earned a reputation for simultaneously managing multiple projects from preconstruction to budgeting to completion. “Our goal is to deliver our client’s vision.”

Pereira’s prolific style has given her experience with dozens of project types – from wood to structural steel to concrete – that include high/rises, hotels, multi-family housing, universities, biomedical laboratories, data centers, offices, retail centers, heavy infrastructure, and parking garages. Her experience was a key reason Gary Filizetti recruited Pereira as Devcon transitioned into building steel and concrete structures.

“I grew up in construction,” she said. As a child, she sat in on bid openings, and visited job sites with her father, a general contractor. “I learned from him. He was detail-oriented, and knew how to delegate. Most importantly, he believed in doing things the right way.”

Pereira earned a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Santa Clara University. She has also completed her certificate for LEED, Core Concepts and Strategies.
