Dean joined Muscular Dystrophy UK in January 2014.
Before this he worked with Action Duchenne for five years; organising lobbies, conferences and numerous fundraising events, as well as supporting families affected by Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.
Dean has a 19 year old son with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and understands the importance of ensuring everyone affected by a muscle-wasting condition receives the best possible care and support to lead independent fulfilling lives.
