About Us

DEAN AND ASSOCIATES was established in 1995 by veteran international resort development consultant Paul Dean. Responding to the nascent demand for standalone shared ownership projects and mixed use resorts, Dean identified a gap in the market for world-class consultancy services to new and experienced developers. Since then, Dean & Associates has demonstrated sector leadership, winning contracts for over 100 resort projects in more than 20 markets with global hospitality brands, financial institutions, boutique and independent developers.

Recognizing the need for a greater focus on the operational requirements of many of his clients, Jim Sabot was invited to join the practice in late 2013. As a former executive of the Asia Pacific region’s largest mixed use VO projects, Jim brings a wealth of experience in the sales, marketing, owner services and support infrastructure for these activities. Dean and Associates can now boast a unique “cradle to grave” capability from inception through the selling cycle and beyond.

Dean & Associates are proud to be the pre-eminent provider of end-to-end services including best-use analysis, concept design, product structuring, project management, strategic marketing, business plan writing, budget development, value engineering, reserve funding assessment, project fund-raising, operator selection, consumer-end financing, software selection, marketing and sales implementation, resort work-outs, turnarounds and distressed resort troubleshooting.
