I grew up in Arizona (yes a native), in the heart of Ahwatukee where I went to Las Lomas (elementary), Centennial (middle school) and Mountain Pointe high school. I spent a lot of time playing sports while growing up, while working for my dad, Ron Jones of Stone Creek Furniture. There, I learned marketing and business management by working when I was a young teenager, making my way up the ranks from janitor duties, sanding and finishing, cabinet building, furniture deliveries all the way up to project management.
After high school (2001), with offers to play football at Mesa Community and Scottsdale Community and walking on to the community college baseball team, kept me pretty active. Injuring my knee again, kept me sidelined in both sports. I took a year off and worked full time with Stone Creek Furniture until I applied to attend culinary school at Scottsdale Culinary Institute. Graduating in 2003, I took my talents and as well as a Sous Chef at The Charthouse, moving on and became an assistant pastry chef at The Phoenician, in Scottsdale. Seeing long hours, hostile work environments and working the holidays with no time for my family, I paused that career path for the time being. In 2004, I moved to Dallas, Texas (Addison) to help open up our first out of state Stone Creek Furniture Factory in Farmers Branch. There, I spent the next year helping develop and train staff for the entire process, from inventory and purchasing, to sales and delivery. I moved back in 2006 and resumed my role in Project Management and Quality Control.
In 2007, I was blessed with the best job I could ever have the privilege of having, and became a father to an amazing lil' dude, Parker. He is a true inspiration for what I do today and I have a lot to be thankful for. Parker plays football, baseball and basketball. He loves to learn how things work, taking apart cell phones and R/C cars and putting them back together. His curiosity will speak volumes with all the questions he asks and he is a fan of the book series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I also NOW have a valid excuse to watch cartoons and introduce Parker to some of my favorite shows growing up, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. JOE, and many more. He’s my heart and you’ll probably hear me talk about him, A LOT!
In 2009, Still working as a project manager, I was presented with another opportunity to try my talents at something, and I haven’t looked back. I was introduced to internet marketing, and Netwirks was developed. I started as a sales consultant, after 2 years, became Director of Sales and then became a Partner. We took what we had learned by what we had been providing for Stone Creek Furniture and made it available to other businesses. We started local here in AZ and offered to our suppliers at Stone Creek, as well as our acquaintances, family and friends. Soon enough, we would be providing a dental practices, law firms, doctors offices, small, medium and large businesses through referral and by our presence on search engine’s, being the same services we provide for our clients.
I am proud to say, I love what I do, who I work with and with whom we do work for. We provide an honest, white hat service to any and all businesses and budgets to help you gain the exposure that you deserve. Please reach out to me, I would love to hear how we can potentially help you and forge a natural fit business partnership.
While I’m not Wirking, I help coach kids developing fundamentals for baseball with hitting and fielding, as well as proper technique for safety in football. Golfing is a passion of mine and I love playing with my dad, brother and with Parker whenever it’s not too hot for him.
Dean was given his “Director of Getting The Word Out” title by his mentor and former radio boss and C.I.E.I.O Mike Jorgenson of Sundance Broadcasting. He moved to the valley in 1993 and was creative director for KZON “The Zone,” KOY-AM, KYOT-FM “The Coyote,” and Kiss 1230 AM. He quickly realized that sales people were driving the nice cars and went back into radio sales as sales manager of Arizona’s first radio station KOY-AM. Dean’s resume looks more like a rap sheet.
