Tellone Financial Services, Inc.
Dean Tellone, whose birth name is Dino, started Tellone Financial Services in 1975. He had a passion for helping people make their money grow and saving them tax dollars. He knew when he was in college that this was his calling.
After graduating with a business degree in 1971, Dean was hired as a Financial Analyst for Teledyne Corporate offices in Century City, California. In 1973, he joined the audit staff where he audited Teledyne companies throughout the United States. Later, wanting to stay close to home he became Controller for 3 divisions of Teledyne and worked his way up to Director of Finance and Administration, managing six departments. With his passion to help his friends’ and colleagues’ increase their wealth, he started his first private investment fund in 1980.
In 1983, after 12 years with Teledyne, he decided to pursue his dream and work full-time along with two employees that shared his vision. He moved into offices at a local commercial building, a half mile away from his home in Anaheim Hills. In 1986, he incorporated Tellone Financial Services, Inc., and in 1987, founded and incorporated Tellone Management Group, Inc., a registered investment advisor. In 1992, with the continued growth and expansion of his companies, he purchased the complex of buildings where he has been located for over 30 years.
