Lisa de Freitas Sundberg: Secretary – Treasurer / CFO
Lisa was born in Castro Valley, CA and grew up in Pleasanton, CA. She is married to her loving husband, Steve Sundberg. She has two amazing children. Lisa graduated from Sacramento State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration – Accountancy in 1988.
It was while at Sac State that Lisa began her bright, young career in the pipeline industry. Lisa formed Lisa Dee Corporation, a trucking company, out of her dorm room in 1986 at the young age of twenty! She started with the purchase of some used water trucks and eventually added semi trucks to haul rock and sand to her father’s job sites. She would lease the trucks to MJB Pipeline along with other companies in the industry. From her dorm room, Lisa would dispatch the drivers on a daily basis, perform all of the accounting work, and mail the paychecks to her employees, one of whom was Keith Romick (current Field Operations Manager at Platinum Pipeline).
Upon graduating from Sac State, Lisa continued to grow and manage Lisa Dee Corporation while also working for a CPA firm to perfect her accounting skills. She began performing accounting duties at MJB Pipeline in 1990 and quickly became the office manager and Controller in 1992. Lisa managed an office/accounting staff of over 10 employees and oversaw the accounting of a $30 million dollar per year construction company, all while continuing to single-handedly manage Lisa Dee Corporation.
Lisa closed Lisa Dee corporation in 2007, when Platinum Pipeline was awarded its first contract, to focus her energy on building Platinum Pipeline with her brother, Manuel de Freitas.
Lisa is the Secretary/Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer at Platinum Pipeline. She oversees all financial and administrative aspects of the company including the entire office staff, human resources, accounts payable, accounts receivable, contract administration, insurance, surety, and all in-house accounting and financial requirements. Lisa prides herself in maintaining the highest level of customer satisfaction with all of our customers and subcontractors.
Lisa’s favorite pastimes are spending time with family and friends, travel and cheering on and rooting for her son and daughter at their numerous football, basketball, and volleyball games. And for fun… she loves accounting work!
