Getting2KnowU: Matt Sullivan
The people that power WHOSAY, a Viacom company, are a blend of advertising, technology and media professionals who foster a spirit of creativity, commitment, innovation, and teamwork. And today, you will get to know another one of our outstanding WHOSAYers:
Name: Matt Sullivan
Hometown: Live in Fayetteville, AR. Grew up in Port Lavaca, TX or what we use to call it…Port LaVodka, TX
School: Texas Tech University, Wreck’Em Tech!
Role at WHOSAY: Account Director - Sales
Prior role: Business Development Manager – Advantage (Retailtainment)
Dream creator(s) to work with: I like John C. Reilly. I appreciate actors/artist that can do comedy, but also be taken seriously in a dramatic role.
Favorite thing about advertising: That at times…there are no bad ideas. Just have to convince people that your idea will work. I appreciate the freedom to build and sell a concept that is 100% manufactured by our teams.
Most challenging aspect of the industry: Convincing clients your idea will work….lol. That set up nicely…
Secret life hack: Live your life (sort of my motto). There are no rules in life, just go do what you want to do. Being happy is the most important thing.
Interesting fact about yourself: Ummm…thought I was going to be a NASCAR driver growing up. I lived and worked in Honduras as a Dive Master for a while…I’ve traveled all over the world...was robbed at gunpoint, but convinced the robbers to give me my wallet back.
Best advice you’ve ever received: Treat others the way you want to be treated; an oldie but a goodie!
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? I would like to be some sort of hybrid animal…a mix between a Dolphin and a Bald Eagle. A Dolgle if you will….
If you had your own late night talk show, who would you invite as your first guest?
Dead or alive? I’m going to go with it doesn’t matter: Mark Twain
If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep? I only have about 5 total…so I guess Pandora, The Weather Channel, and Uber
What are the last three emoji you used on your phone? 💩👍😃 (sent to Joel Ponce)
