Where family and business come together
Three generations work or have worked for the firm. Philip Decker bought the business in the 1970s. In 1980, Decker’s son-in-law, Chip Yodzis, and his daughter, Carol Yodzis, joined the business. Now the Yodzis’ children, John and Sarah, work at DOW.
John Yodzis was hesitant to join the family business. He always wanted to be an entrepreneur, just like his grandfather.
“I wanted to start something on my own,” John says. Although his parents didn’t pressure him, his dad did weigh in to say, “We’d love to have you, and at the end of the day, you’ll realize business is business, regardless of whose business you’re working for.”
