Meet the team: Jonathan Depledge

In our latest in the Meet the Team series, we meet Jonathan Depledge, DP Medical’s Midlands and North Wales Sales Manager. Here we find out more about his role and even a recent sneaky appearance in a hit TV show!

Where are you from and how long have you worked at DP Medical?

I’m originally from Ascot but now live in Chester. I have been with DP Medical in total for six years now, however I had a break to go travelling in the middle. I used to cover the Southwest and South Wales when I lived in Bristol, and now having moved to Chester I cover the Midlands and North Wales.

What does a typical day in your role at DP Medical involve?

Typically, my day is spent getting in front of customers having conversations about their requirements and needs for new equipment to improve services within ENT, SLT and Gynae departments.

The job entails us to complete a 360-selling approach from initial meetings with consultants and nurses, tailoring equipment needs with the help of procurement and EBME departments, delivering the equipment to hospitals and offering after sales support/training to end users.

What’s your favourite part of the job?

For me, it’s about the face-to-face element. Meeting new people, and when they finally get the new equipment, the excitement they have as a team to get up and running and utilising the better products.

What makes DP Medical stand out from the crowd?

From my experience and from feedback from customers, I would say it’s our response time as individuals and a company to help when we can with equipment, quick turn arounds are important, and I think a professional but relaxed approach to make end users comfortable and confident with the equipment before using them on patients

When you’re not at work, what do you get up to in your spare time?

My spare time is often spent in the gym, or the pub. Life’s about balance right!

And finally, tell us something not everyone knows about you…

I recently was an extra in the latest series of the Peaky Blinders. My 1.2 seconds of fame in Season 6, episode 2 – don’t miss it!
