Dean has been named CEO of more than three dozen companies in a turnaround. He has a knack for discovering, unlocking and focusing on the true, inherent value of every organization, then finding unique and creative ways to restore and manage shareholder value. A consummate turnaround artist, Dean often radically changes the fortunes of those who are experiencing extraordinarily difficult times. He received the Turnaround Management Association’s Turnaround of the Year (2004) and Transaction of the Year (2009) Awards.
As founder and Chairman, Dean works with each of the firm’s Managing Partners to restore shareholder value in a turnaround, enhance value during a consulting engagement, or realize value through a transaction or capital formation.
He is involved in several faith-based organizations, enjoys boating, bicycling, tennis, riding his motorcycle on country roads, snorkeling and diving on the reefs near his home in the Bahamas and spending time with his family, including his wife of 45 years, four grown children and nine grandchildren.
