A conservative commentator and opinion columnist. Dean’s professional background is in advertising, heading companies Euro RSCG and Reckitt Benckiser. He has also been involved in campaigns for Fosters, Nurofin & Dettol and has sat as chairman of the Australiasian Writers & Art Directors Association.
Dean also moonlights as a political columnist for several Tory rags including The Daily Telegraph, Australian Financial Review, Courier Mail and The Spectator, which he is an editor of. He also appears as a regular guest on The Gruen Transfer and worked on 2UE’s Behind the Brief.
Like others in his field, Dean survives the great suckhole of obscurity by being a contrarian. His work is largely dedicated towards preserving his own demographic, being rich white males in positions of influence and power. In one of his more offensive piece’s “The poor me list” which was published in the Financial Review 2016, Dean takes aim at those in the public light that who claim to be hard done by but in Dean’s fantasy world, are not. 4 out of the 7 were non white, 3 out of the 7 were indigenous, 2 out of the 7 were outspoken feminists and one was a Muslim.
Dean has jumped on the Donald Trump bandwagon, teaming up with Mark Latham and Ross Cameron in The Outsiders.
