Dean Shillingford

Office Manager

“Money is numbers and numbers never end. If it takes money to be happy, your search for happiness will never end.” Bob Marley

Dean has always loved the feeling of working within a close-knit team. As a youngster, he enjoyed playing football for fun and represented his borough and school teams with pride. Though a knee injury held him back from pursuing this team sport more seriously, Dean is now heading up the Bitstocks team as Office Manager.

As captain of the Bitstocks team, Dean is in charge of office admin, and supporting and coaching employees. While every day brings new challenges, the team’s progress and the growth of each individual invigorates and inspires him.

 

As a dedicated family man (he dotes on his daughter and prioritises spending time with his partner), gaming nerd, gym fanatic, and ‘spiritually awoke’, he fits in perfectly within the Bitstocks team. It’s his fashion sense that makes him stand out. Having once ran his own clothing brand called Lost Boys Never Grow Up, he loves expressing himself through clothing and dreams of creating a fashion brand again.

 

Though Dean certainly has the looks and style, he also brings to the table his expertise in computer hardware picked up from working in a computer shop alongside his uncle after completing high school. Dean learned to build and repair office computers and developed a knack for building more complex gaming computers. 

 

When Michael approached him for the position of Office Manager and explained Bitstocks mission and long-term vision, he couldn’t say no. And the rest, as they say, is history.
