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.

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

I really enjoy the opportunity to learn and grow as an individual as well as a part of a team every day. The flexibility to share my ideas, and help develop structures/protocols that are then put into everyday use. Additionally, the ability to work with and build connections with our clients in order to help them expand their business everyday. 

 

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

I love to travel with my family. About once a year or every other we plan a large trip to somewhere we have never been in order to learn/ experience new cultures, try new foods, and connect as a family. My favorite place I have been so far is Cork, Ireland.

Buck Bochtler

Account Manager

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

What I love about being an Account Manager at Direct Clicks Inc is helping our agents optimize their advertising budgets. Coming from 10 years of being on the insurance sales side, I love helping our agents maximize their sales because I know the struggles the sales staff have gone through chasing down cold and ineffective leads. The values that drive me are building strong relationships with agencies and building their trust as a trusted marketing partner the same way that they build a trust with their customers as a trusted advisor to protect their risks. 

 

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

When I’m not working I love watching sports, (if it’s a sport I’ll probably enjoy watching it!) I also enjoy being outside whether it’s out on the golf course, in a tree stand, duck blind, or out on a boat fishing. I also enjoy playing video games with friends and playing guitar and singing.
