The idea for The Latimer Group was born in Grand Canyon National Park, in fall of 2000, during a “what if” conversation between Dean and his wife Emily. Emily said the magic words… “You love to build teams, you love to teach, and you are a great public speaker… build a business around that.” Eighteen months later, The Latimer Group was off and running.
Dean is motivated by creating great environments for the people in his life. For his teammates, creating a culture of collaboration and opportunity where they can spread their wings. For our clients, creating learning environments where they are challenged, supported and empowered to make their own voice heard. And for his family, building a home environment that is based on love, laughter and great experiences.
In addition to his Latimer life, Dean spent more than twenty years directly involved with the United States Olympic Sailing Program, as an alternate on the 2000 Olympic Team, and then eventually as the Chairman and Team Leader for the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Teams. Dean cheers passionately for his beloved New York Yankees, and his dominant fantasy football team.
