More recently Dean was appointed as a Non-Executive Director, and Vice Chair, of Sussex Chamber of Commerce.

He was also President of Sussex Law Society for 2011/12. He is a frequent contributor to the Platinum Business magazine.

In July 2012, Dean received the Business Matters Business Personality of the Year Award in recognition of his proactive involvement with Sussex business community.
