Among Dean's notable career highlights is his tenure as Founder, CEO & President of Kieretsu Forum Northwest, the world's largest angel investor network with 850 accredited investor members throughout nineteen chapters on three continents. Since its founding in 2000, Kieretsu members have invested over $200 million in 260 companies spanning technology, consumer products, healthcare/life sciences, real estate and other segments with high growth potential.
"Open4sale's dynamic technology will create a paradigm shift in the way that consumers and brick-and-mortar retailers shop and do things today in the world of e-commerce. I am very pleased to join the company at this remarkable time in its history," says Dean. "I've had the opportunity to work with and look at thousands of companies. This company is disruptive. It's hitting excellent market timing with the right team and product for today's market."
After two years of research and development, Open4Sale has expanded its operations into the US, Europe and Asia and bolstered its IT team from 12 to more than 50 personnel worldwide in anticipation of company growth in early 2012.
At the end-of-year shareholders meeting held Dec. 14th in Adelaide, Australia; Open4Sale CEO Simon La Barrie shared his hopes for the future, "With Todd Dean's influence, we've put together a high powered leadership team who bring experience from top tier technology companies.
