Today's Workforce Development Challenges
The GACC is honored to have guest speaker Chris DeCapua, co-owner of Dawson Careers, at the next Business Exchange Luncheon: Trailblazers Series on Thursday, November 8th at La Navona.
Dawson Careers was started in 1946 to help soldiers returning home from World War II. Started by Father Joseph DeCapua, who travelled to Columbus from Cleveland looking to start his own business. With little resources, Joseph took a chance on a small company called Dawson that was close to shutting its doors. Over the years, Dawson traded hands a couple times but in 1966 Joseph took over sole responsibility for the business.
Chris DeCapua graduated from the University of Alabama and has been with Dawson since 1987. He has served on multiple non-profit boards in Central Ohio, including The Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, Camp Mary Orton and is currently on the Job Services Board for Cristo Rey High School, one of Dawson's charity partners. He resides in Upper Arlington with his wife and four young children.
