MediPurpose Names Kevin Jonas New Midwest U.S. and EMEA Key Account Manager
Continues Expansion of Medical Device Sales Team, Commitment to Personalized Customer Service
NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, ATLANTA and SINGAPORE—MediPurpose™, a medical product manufacturer and master distributor, today announced Kevin Jonas as its new key account manager (KAM) for the Midwest United States and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia).
Jonas brings a wealth of professional sales experience to MediPurpose, most recently as a regional sales associate at Stanbio Laboratory (an EKF Global Diagnostics Company), where he was a 2013 Top Domestic Revenue Producer and Regional Sales Associate of the Year.
The announcement comes within months after the addition of Mindy Rodriguez as the new KAM for the Western United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. Jonas will serves on the sales team with Rodriguez, Cheryl Channell, KAM for the Eastern United States and Canada, and VP-Sales Reggie Carr.
The continued expansion of the sales team reflects the medical device company’s ongoing commitment to highly personalized customer service, as well as anticipation of new medical products to be introduced in 2015, said MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi.
“Although our customers naturally recognize the value and quality of our medical products, they also appreciate the unique attentiveness we provide to their accounts,” said Yi. “As a ‘boutique medical product company’ whose culture promotes specialization—whether it’s with respect to our products or our customer service—we need individuals that can support that culture, which Kevin Jonas certainly can. This will become even more crucial in coming months as we introduce new products.”
“I anticipate very good things for the company,” said Jonas. “The small-team environment and the outstanding products that we both currently offer and will soon be offering create a very powerful synergy, and it’s going to be exciting to see how that brings added value to our customers.”
Jonas is based in New Braunfels, Texas, where he lives with his wife and two children.
Founded in 1999, MediPurpose is a boutique medical product company with offices and partnerships in the United States, Canada, LatAm, EMEA and Asia.
