This week on the Millionaire Choice Show, Tony talks with Dean Kelly, UK Entrepreneur and multi-millionaire about life, business, leadership, and his path to becoming a millioniare.
Dean Kelly is a Serial entrepreneur and a family man with a beautiful wife and 3 lovely children. Dean is a highly regarded, multi-award-winning entrepreneur. Hailing from a tough London council estate with nothing but big dreams, a solid family and a belief that he wasn’t going to follow the stereotype life of his peers, Dean set about finding success in business.
He has built & sold several companies in the recruitment sector. Selling his first business at 30 yrs old in under 3 years for a strong 8 figure sum. He took over the acquiring PLc becoming the youngest CEO on the U.K. stock market. Dean delisted and sold the plc in 2015. He has since founded the UKs largest network of recruitment CEOs, with a combined turnover of £3bn
He is an angel investor in a small portfolio of companies within the SaaS, education and recruitment space. He is a mentor, coach and adviser to CEOs, entrepreneurs and their boards. Using his Deanism techniques to grow new millionaires.
At 23 he fell into recruitment and within 2 years he elevated himself to be one of the biggest billers in the sector. Within 3 years he had been headhunted to set up a company for a group of investors. The company grew at an exceptional rate, building to 42 staff in his first year and a multi-million-pound turnover. A fallout over shares saw Dean resign to set up his own business and to change the way his market operated. His business grew even quicker than before, becoming the UKs fastest zero to exit agency as he sold the business for a strong 8-figure sum in under three years. Unfortunately, the acquiring PLC issued a two-year profit warning within weeks of completion, putting over 300 jobs at risk. At 30 years old Dean took control of the group, making him (at that time) the youngest CEO on the stock market! He turned the business around, repaid £30m of bank debt, delisted and sold the group in 2015.
With several successful exits under his belt, a prosperous portfolio of companies and a wealth of business knowledge, Dean now trains, advises and mentors business Founders, Entrepreneurs and CEOs to support their growth, expansion and mental focus.
Outside of work Dean is happily married with three amazing children, two bubbly french bulldogs and an addiction to maintaining a healthy body, healthy mind.
