Our Story


DaltonPlan was started by Dean Dalton who holds over 35+ years experience running his own businesses, writing comprehensive business plans and working alongside multi-million dollar companies.

Dean and his wife Jo, moved back to Mount Maunganui after spending 40+ years in Wellington. Although they loved their time in the captial, they were lured by the constant smells of the beach and the opportunity to live a more balanced lifestyle up here in the Bay of Plenty.

DaltonPlan wants to be able to help other kiwi businesses run a profitable business, and spend more time enjoying other aspects of life, like time with their family.
