Chris Dean |


Director, Tax & Business Advisory Services

Quite the character – in every sense of the word.

Chris Dean has de-iced an airplane in a blizzard, owns a burnt-orange polyester leisure suit and graduated Magna Cum Laude from The Ohio State University.  Some might call him a character, but it’s his ability to look beyond the ordinary and find the answers to tough problems that makes him an asset to GBQ.

He brings thirteen years of experience to our team, as well as an amazing ability to roll with the punches inflicted by this business. His favorite quote is, “Life’s not about weathering the storm, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

We just wonder if he can dance in that leisure suit.
