LAKE FOREST, Calif. — The largest HME provider in the industry recently recognized two of its sales professionals for outstanding performance.
Deanna Thompson, vice president of sales for Apria Healthcare’s Northern California Region, started as a customer service manager in Concord, Calif., in 1987 and quickly worked her way up the ranks to become a regional vice president of sales in September 2001. Thompson was also voted Region Vice President of Sales of the Year for solid 2002 and 2003 sales growth rates.
Patrick Loschke, market manager for Apria’s Northern California Region, is particularly adept at establishing relationships with his managed care accounts and routinely meets his sales goals. He twice earned the Circle of Excellence award.
