About Dean

Dean Smith first entered the Senate as a Liberal for Western Australia in May of 2012.

In June 2022 he was appointed by Opposition Leader Peter Dutton to the Coalition’s three-member economics and treasury team as the Shadow Assistant Minister for Competition, Charities and Treasury.

Prior to this role, Dean was a member of Coalition Government’s Senate Leadership Team – having been elected in January 2019 by his Liberal Senate colleagues to the role of Chief Government Whip in the Senate.

He spent his early life in Port Hedland and has always maintained close ties to WA’s far north, serving as patron Senator for the Pilbara and Kimberley, as well as Perth’s northern suburbs.
