Dean is based in the UK and graduated from St Helens College in Merseyside with a GNVQ in Business and Commerce. Upon graduating, he began a career in Point-of-Sale consultancy, working for well-known brands such as Iceland and Office Depot until 2004, when he was offered a role as Sales and Marketing Manager for a greetings card company.
After a brief stint working in Business Development for a print management company, Dean was given the opportunity to develop his marketing strategy experience, working for a creative marketing agency in 2008. He also worked for GOD TV as Head of Development and Channel Marketing, overseeing fundraising, marketing and major projects, as well as developing new relationships with viewers and supporters.
Dean has always been passionate about building businesses and, in 2014, founded his first agency, iMARVEL!, with a co-worker. iMARVEL! is a creative marketing agency that offers an in-house production and creative service to SMEs, covering design, web, video, marketing strategy and print.
However, in 2018, Dean announced his departure from iMARVEL! to focus on working specifically with entrepreneurs to develop their marketing strategy and training, and his new agency, Maverrik was born.
Maverrik is a marketing and strategy consultancy that brings industry expertise, know-how and advisory to leaders who want to build their strategy, gain expertise and develop their businesses to their fullest potential. The company works with and advises businesses primarily in the professional services, event management, media and finance industries.
With a focus on the B2B marketplace, the team helps clients achieve growth and generate new business more effectively. They work with developing businesses to help them focus, develop strategies and implement tactics to see their growth ambitions realised.
As well as founding Maverrik, Dean simultaneously became the director of Imprint, a print company based in Devon, which has been operating for the last eight years.
Dean lives in Plymouth and is married to Louise, who works at Maverrik as his Client Success Director.
