He also has a strong background in and appreciation of the use of technology to service the needs of clients who increasingly embrace and adopt digital working practices.”

“With a strong background of working with both start-ups and scale ups, along with owner managed businesses, Dean will be looking to develop the firm’s client base engaged in technology, media and the creative industries as well as engineering and manufacturing, property and construction.”

“He will also work closely with the local Partners Rachel Skells, Michael Greene and Dan Insley in terms of supporting the wider growth of the practice.”

When asked what it meant to be returning to Streets, Dean commented: “I am proud to be returning to Streets and to have been appointed as a director. The recent merger has provided me with the exciting local opportunity to be part of a forward-thinking practice that recognises the need to respond to the ever-changing world. The move also means that I will now be able to draw on the wider expertise of the Streets practice, which includes specialist corporate tax advice, corporate finance, accounting software and personal financial planning to support the needs of clients both now and in the future.”

“In my new role I am really looking forward to being able to build my own portfolio of entrepreneurial and SME clients and in particular creating closer ties with new and growing businesses that are located in the various business innovation and incubation centres across the area.”
