Don Hughan Key Account Manager
Don Hughan began working as a key account manager for Speed Medical in January 2017. Responsible for ensuring the smooth running of relationships in his priority accounts, Don’s brief is to maximise the mutual benefit to be derived from the interactions between Speed and the customers using Speed Medical’s services.
Immediately prior to joining Speed, Don held the position of national accounts director with Doctors Chambers for a total of 5 years after joining the company as Head of Business Development in 2005. Before this, Don began his career in medical reporting as a Sales Manager for Micrah Services.
Earlier on in his varied career, Don had worked in sales and account management roles for the RAC; spent 11 years as a financial advisor with the likes of TSB, GRE, Royal Life and Schroders; sold tobacco for Gallaher Ltd; and even spent 2 years with the Inland Revenue working as a Tax officer.
Ever the optimist, Don searches out the positive in every situation and faces each challenge in the same professional manner - striving for mutual benefit and the bolstering of trust and respect all round; an approach he has worked hard to pass on to his children.
Born in Crosby, Liverpool, in 1956, Don spent part of his early childhood living in Turkey before returning to Merseyside and attending Waterloo Grammar School, Kirkby College and Liverpool Polytechnic where, for a short time, he studied Law. He now lives in Maghull, Liverpool, with his wife, two of his four children, and a Tibetan Terrier called Max. He is a keen golfer, passionate Liverpool FC supporter and connoisseur of fine (and not so fine) lagers.Back
