Kasseem Dean (Swizz Beatz) is an internationally acclaimed Grammy-Award Winning music producer, global entrepreneur and currently a student in the Harvard Business School’s Owner/President Management Program. He has worked with a diverse range of artists and some of the biggest names in the world.
Dean’s talents and success extend well beyond the music world. In 2015, Dean joined global spirit giant Bacardi as their Global Chief Creative for Culture, overseeing more than 300 brands within the company's portfolio. Believing that art embodies culture and is an expression of life, as a child Dean saw graffiti on the walls in the Bronx and wondered about its meaning. He began collecting art in his twenties, and in 2014 launched The Dean Collection, which is not only a collection of his own artwork but also a discovery zone for art enthusiasts who appreciate art not just from the greats but also from aspiring and new artists alike.
