Dan Decker: Blazing a Path to Success

Dan Decker (BS BA '79, JD '80) has built a successful business career beginning in law but encompassing 20 years of real estate investment, including over $2B of senior housing investments as well as the pending acquisition of Sunrise Senior Living (NYSE: SRZ), the preeminent operator of assisted living communities in the country. The oldest of ten children, Decker pursued his education in a non-traditional sense yet earned both a bachelor's degree and a JD before embarking on an incredible career. He blazed a new path and continues today his commitment to his company and, as a new member of the Trulaske College of Business strategic development board, his alma mater.
