Dean Sound, founded in 1982, is owned and operated by Jeff Dean, Findlay, Ohio. Jeff felt at the time that the progressive city of Findlay was not being served with a professional audio firm with top shelf gear. Since that time he has steadily built up his stock of rental equipment to provide audio for a large base of events and performers. From presidents to national touring acts to local musicals, university events, and arts organizations, Jeff has led Dean Sound to provide first-class audio services for over 4,500 events.
Jeff has been married to his wife Jill for over 3 decades. Their oldest son is married and lives nearby, their daughter lives out west, and their youngest son is in the live audio touring field. Jeff is an amateur astronomer and is also interested in researching history and traveling to off-the-beaten-path historical sites, not surprising as he spent 35 years as a public educator.
DLS Installations, founded in 2004, is co-owned by Jeff Dean and Doug Lee. Doug has a degree from DeVry and has worked in several technical positions, including such firms as RCA, Intersil, and Marathon Petroleum. Doug has been married to his wife Toni for over 3 decades, and they have four grown children, 3 sons and a daughter, plus a daughter-in-law and 2 fabulous grandsons. Doug is interested in many things, from sports to nature to hanging out with his family. He is the original Mr. Fix-It.
