Barry Dean was not intending to start a company when he and his brother started trying to find a solution for his daughter, Katherine, and her power chair. That desire launched a journey that spanned three years, millions of travel miles, 17 patents and one game-changing new technology for power wheelchair users: LUCI. Barry will share, personally, how being Katherine’s father has been an incredible education, what he’s learned (since day one) and how that can provide a new frame for interacting with patients and their families.
Barry Dean is an award-winning songwriter turned wheelchair technology founder. As CEO of LUCI, Barry sets the strategic vision and leads the company towards its goal of providing security, stability and connectivity for power wheelchairs. He founded the company with his brother, Jered, in 2017 with hopes of building a smarter solution for his daughter Katherine and all power wheelchair riders. He is a founding writer at Creative Nation Music, Recording Academy (GRAMMY) Nashville Chapter Governor, and has previously served two terms as a board member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International. Prior to becoming a songwriter, he led market strategy and product development for a leading education technology company. Barry lives in Nashville, Tenn.Barry Dean
