Team Focus: Steve Bastow, Business Development Manager – South West

Steve Bastow

This is part of a series of posts where we introduce each member of the Daniels Healthcare team, from across the organisation. We have a compliment of approximately 90+ staff members who all live and breathe the ethos of Daniels and you’ll get to meet many of them in this series.

Steve joined Daniels in July 2017 and is the Business Development Manager for Daniels Healthcare in the South West of England.

He provides support and advice on Daniels products and services to customers in this area which covers Oxford to Penzance and anywhere in between!

His day-to-day responsibilities include looking after key accounts, identifying customer training needs, coordinating audits, looking for new opportunities for Daniels and making sure our current customers are happy with our products and services.

Steve has impressive credentials with more than 30 years in the medical sales industry. After graduating with a degree in biology, his interest in pharmaceuticals and life sciences naturally led him to roles in medical consumables, such as surgical gloves and wound care.

He’s also spent lots of time in operating theatres with clinical specialists which sparked an interest, and determination, in developing cost-effective procurement models to help cash-strapped hospitals.

This combination of solid sales experience, financial expertise and a notable background in the industry makes Steve perfect for this role, and we’re so pleased to have him on board.

Steve said: “I knew Daniels by reputation before I joined the company. The team here are well-known for being friendly and supportive by customers and others in the sector, and I wanted to work for an organisation who had a good customer service philosophy, which Daniels does.

“It’s a nice environment to work in and my main challenge is getting to know my patch – it’s quite a large area to become familiar with!”.

Steve is married with two grown-up children and in his spare time he loves being in the great outdoors – walking or riding his mountain bike in his favourite place, the Cotswolds.
