BBC Introducing has had a number of successes over the years in helping bands to finding mainstream success, most recently with Jake Bugg, who topped the charts with his debut album.
Dean said: "Presenting new, emerging artists is as exciting as it is rewarding.
"To see musicians we've worked with prior to their fame now selling out massive tours, climbing the charts and getting mainstream airplay is a real thrill.
"On my programme, for example, we had a good deal to do with the likes of Kasabian, Coldplay, Muse and Ed Sheeran well before they found mainstream success."
Other bands that have come through the BBC Introducing system include The Ting Tings, Florence and the Machine, Two Door Cinema Club and Chipmunk.
