Matty Jonza

Director of Sales - SEM/Google Ads

What do you like about your leadership role at Direct Clicks Inc. and/or what are the values that drive you?

I love working with business owners and helping them plan for their marketing strategy. Working hard has always been instilled ever since I was a little kid. I have always had to work harder than everyone else around me due to a learning disability. That drive to prove everyone wrong helped me graduate college early with honors, be the best aspirant in my territory, and be the best at Google Ads. 

 

What do you like to do when you're not working? 

I love to hang out with my family, friends, and my dog Boomer! I love to read. I like to travel and experience new things. I am also a big foodie! I love food!! I love watching Baylor football/basketball and the Minnesota Vikings. I also love working out and am always staying active.

Reading, finding new songs for my playlists (if they're not already on repeat), playing video games, taking care of my hermit crabs, browsing digital trends, or researching other interests/hobbies.
