Platinum Group's mission — 'Meaningful Capitalism™' — provides the impetus for us to seek ways to bring meaning and value to every relationship, every client and every situation.

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.

Capitalism - The Right Way

Capitalism is getting a bad rap these days. The likes of Bernie Madoff, Tom Petters and many others have given it a bad name. People have legitimate gripes about it. Many have been taken advantage of — abused of their home values, stock portfolios and salaries. There's the real sense that only a few people at the top are getting rich and that 99 percent of the rest are really struggling; capitalism is not helping, in the eyes of many.
