A teacher at heart, Dean Ritchey brings specialized expertise from a career as a senior executive in the North American consumer goods/retail sector to his coaching practice.
Combined with a love for the dynamics of the business world, and an unbridled commitment to see people achieve the extraordinary, his passion lies in growth and development, as he works to enhance the skills of leadership teams, and challenge his clients to do – and be – more than they thought possible.
Dean earned a Bachelors of Business Management, and a Masters in Executive Management, and is skilled in the Rockefeller Habits, as a Coach, and a Continuous Improvement trainer.
Intrigued by the links between people’s passion for their work, and the results they generate, Dean focuses on building teams to increase engagement and deliver the results that impact a company’s long-term success. He believes that success is about making a conscious choice to execute the right decisions at the right time and loves discovering those opportunities with his clients.
Dean, a great reader of business books, loves soccer, running, hiking and fly fishing – and travelling in Mexico with his wife Rossy, and two their children.
Dean is a master at engaging our team and setting us up to be better armed with what we must do to move forward. He instills confidence and direction as we continue to grow.
As small business owners, one of the hardest things for us to do is to let go of the reins and be confident that the wagon will continue moving in the right direction. Dean has helped us plot the course we need and lift others into the drivers’ seat with measurable goals and a clear focus on the crucial numbers. Thanks Dean!
In working with Dean over the past two and a half years our revenue has more than doubled each year and our team has scaled from 20 to 80 people. Throughout all this growth we've been able to keep our leadership and company aligned and motivated due to regular coaching sessions with Dean. He's an integral part of our growth and our business. As a CEO it's a huge comfort walking into our annual and quarterly planning sessions knowing that we'll come out with great plans and results, and with Dean coaching us through it, I'll be free to contribute and participate.
