Dean has over 25 years of public accounting experience, and also worked for two years as an accounting manager for a Fortune 100 company. In addition to managing the firm’s operations, Dean concentrates his practice in the industries of commercial construction, nonprofit, manufacturing and real estate. He spent many years as JHM’s audit Quality Control partner, is in his eighth year of service on Tennessee state’s Peer Review Committee, tasked with ensuring quality audit work throughout the state, and has authored construction financial-related articles in national and state publications. As managing partner, Dean strives to build personal, trusted advisor relationships with his business partners, and pushes others in the firm to do the same. Outside of JHM, Dean loves spending time with his family and friends, traveling, and playing sports and riding thrill rides with his son Tyler. And he just celebrated his 25th anniversary with his wife, Andrea. Dean is a passionate, life-long fan of the Dallas Cowboys, attending games whenever possible. And when time permits, he works hard to check off bucket list travel destinations—one of his greatest enjoyments in life is his annual father-son trip to various U.S. locations.
