Beverlee Dacey

Beverlee Fatse Dacey is proud of who she is and where she came from. A banner-waving baby boomer and the granddaughter of two immigrant entrepreneurs, Dacey is president of Amodex, a Bridgeport manufacturing company founded by her parents, A. Peter and Sylvia Fatse, in 1958. The company makes an ink and stain remover product and includes six people: Dacey, her husband, and their four children — two sets of twins.“History will say the baby boomer generation was amazing. History will say we are the last generation that grew up with a lot of creative sparkle,” she said from a small conference room in Amodex’s building on State Street. “That’s a skill that has served us well. We definitely don’t just coast. We become significant players.“It’s not about me, but what I can do to make things better for others,” she said. “It’s exciting to be on this board and be the voice for the little business. It’s challenging and rewarding.”
