Dean is a native of Dallas, Texas, and a graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where he studied real estate and finance. He played football for the SMU Mustangs on the 1967 team that won the SWC Conference and went to the Cotton Bowl. "We got beat so bad, that game shouldn't have been allowed on television," Dean said.

After graduating in 1967, Dean joined the U.S. Marine Corps where he served in Vietnam as an artillery officer, and attained the rank of captain. He returned to Dallas in 1971 where he began a successful career with Neiman Marcus, the upscale Dallas retailer. He worked as a store manager for Neiman's and eventually opened his own men's retail business. Over time he decided to seek out new challenges and he began working in the life insurance and annuity business, which led him to become a financial advisor.

Dean has a history of professional success in the financial services industry. He joined Wachovia Securities in 1991, and two years later he earned the distinguished title of Premier Advisor in 1993, a distinction based on production and service. He was also named to the Million Dollar Round Table and the Chairman's Circle in recognition of his production. Dean was promoted to Senior Vice President of Investments in 1998. He was among the recipients of the 2009 Five Star Wealth Management Award for Best in Client Satisfaction, based on independent client surveys, in Texas Monthly magazine.

Apart from all of the accolades Dean has earned over the years, his proudest achievement was in April of 2013 when he opened the doors on his newly established Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network branch office with two of his sons as well as two client assistants in a beautiful building overlooking North Dallas.

Dean has earned numerous awards and recognitions over the years and continues to do so today by working to provide the clients of the Ferguson Financial Group with unmatched service at every level.
