Managing Director, Minett Prime Square
Dean has been a part of the Australian hotel landscape for nearly 40 years when he first started as a teenager at Melbourne’s prestigious Southern Cross Hotel.
After a rapid rise in the hotel Dean became the youngest ever GM of a five star hotel in Australia, opening the Southern Cross Sydney. Since that time Dean has managed, led or consulted to hotels, restaurants, resorts and casinos throughout Australia including many years as Country General Manager, Australia, for the world’s largest owner/operator of serviced apartments.
Dean’s experience gives him an unparalleled perspective in the industry, with a range and depth not seen elsewhere. Since 2012, this experience has been utilized by owners, developers, managers and investors who have all drawn on his expertise to develop, manage or improve their assets, whether hotels, casinos, resorts, or serviced apartments. Dean and his partners now support clients at every stage of hotel development, from property design through to operator selection and ongoing asset management.
In addition to his commercial work, Dean has served on numerous industry boards and committees including William Angliss Institute and currently serves on Parks Victoria’s Park Planning, Commercial and Engagement committee.
