"As a growing hotel management company, Altitude Hotel Group are really pleased to have Minett Consulting advising us on best practice and new developments. Dean has assisted us in negotiations on several projects, including securing the Sebel and Grand Mercure Docklands Melbourne, where he was instrumental in our successful purchase of this leasehold and management letting rights business. Dean’s expertise is unique in the industry and he has been able to advise on everything from detailed operations and marketing challenges to assessment of new projects. AHG considers Dean to be an integral part of our business".
"Since first starting to work with Dean in 2008 on the Citadines On Bourke, Melbourne project, I have appreciated that he is a consummate professional, with unparalleled experience in operating, owning and developing hotels & serviced apartments in Australia. Dean’s eye for detail in all phases of a development (including initial design, construction, legal and of course operational) is excellent and his contacts in the industry are extensive. Dean has assisted us secure operators on several serviced apartment projects and we look forward to working with him for many years."
"Dean and I first worked together some years ago when I consulted to him with a management-consulting project, however since that time I have actually engaged Dean to assist Reddin Partners and Reddin Transitions with some complex HR projects. Dean is the consummate professional in handling staffing matters in a considered, considerate and sensitive manner, whilst still keeping a firm eye on the desired outcome. He is an excellent people person, a quick thinker with a great eye for detail and, more importantly, someone I can trust implicitly."
