Dean De Beer
Dean is an energetic and engaging CEO with a strong financial and operational background having successfully led the management buyout, global expansion and profitable exit of a PE backed market leading services business employing over 700 people worldwide.
Having experienced it first hand, he understands the inherent challenges faced by SME’s when building a business, often within tight financial constraints, and the disciplines required to maintain focus.
He has extensive experience of delivering high-end customer service, particularly in the B2B market, having worked closely with the likes of Virgin Atlantic, Emirates and major global financial institutions to develop long standing trading relationships.
From an operational standpoint, he has built operations in the US and HK from scratch, together with a global supplier network and been heavily involved in the associated technology solutions required.
Dean has a detailed understanding of the MBO process and the subsequent sale of a business and is well versed in liaising with different shareholder groups, including Private Equity. He also led the acquisition of a competitor business in the US.
