Austin Dean


Austin is the founder and CEO of Waystone Advisors. He is responsible for setting and maintaining the vision and culture of the company as well as developing authentic and innovative tools that help clients align their wealth with their financial planning goals. A significant amount of Austin’s time is spent with other financial professionals (CPAs, Attorneys, Mortgage Brokers, etc.) to expand the Waystone community and make sure clients have access to the best, most impactful resources.

A graduate of the University of Washington, Austin has been working in the financial industry since 2010 and has been advising clients since 2012. In addition to his degree in Business and Marketing, Austin has four different designations that he acquired to gain a comprehensive understanding of the financial circumstances people go through and the tools that can help guide them. A big believer in practicing what he teaches, Austin loves trading ideas and success stories with our ever-growing community of people looking to build and think about wealth differently.

Austin and his wife Sarah have four young children. They are incredibly passionate about serving others and enjoy sharing their time and resources with their community and contributing to causes they are passionate about. When Austin’s not working on the business or spending time with his family, he loves to exercise, spend time in nature, or get lost in a really good book.
