Tony’s DPS Group Talk

Name: Tony Whatley

Job title: Internal Sales Manager

Tell us a bit about yourself: 

I’m been married to Christine for 30 glorious years. We’ve got a daughter (28) who is a physiotherapist, and a son (26) who is a PE teacher/semi pro footballer who plays for Arbroath.

Most weekends I can be found cheering on Arbroath where I’ve been known to try to educate the linesman and referee.

We spend many hours walking beaches and hills with our dog Breagha, and I regularly attend the gym which allows me to partake in my other passion – fine red wine!
