His formal skill set spans the disciplines of accounting, strategy, finance, international trade, marketing and management with specific expertise in the early growth phase of new ventures.
After many years away from Hawkes Bay Dean has returned to establish an Angel Investment network. His passion lies in supporting those special people we call Entrepreneurs and the amazing teams that form around them.

After living in big cities for a large part of his life Dean is enjoying the culture and environment of Hawkes Bay. With three children at University and one working in London, he has a bit more time these days and can often be seen attacking Te Mata peak at pace.
