Jon Dean

Managing Director

Jon started his career on a two-year Management and Leadership Development Programme with Inchcape, a retail motor-franchise group, after which he was promoted to Sales Manager within the Land Rover franchise at the age of 22.

He subsequently moved into an Area Manager role in the motor-vehicle finance industry with Chartered Trust (now Black Horse Finance) where he managed dealer group and manufacturer relationships and completed his Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) examinations in commercial and financial practice.

His first business venture came when he set up a specialist technology leasing company. This established several high-level agreements with technology vendors who offered the company’s services to commercial clients either directly or through resellers, to help them to procure their solutions.

After a successful trade sale of that business, he spent a short while delivering consultancy and training by individual request before realising there was a significant gap in the market for high quality, flexible and usable leadership and management training.

He established Impellus in 2008 with a set of principles around every training course and qualification; they should be enjoyable, understandable, and deliver real and immediate organisational results. These principles run through every programme the company delivers to this day.
