Who?

FUELED BY CHALLENGE.

From young Fortune 50 to building an independent marketing agency.

Johnathan Martin is an avid go-getter and marketing professional from Milwaukee, WI – starting his “professional” career at the young age of six where he opened a properly licensed lemonade stand in his small hometown of Lannon, WI. Fast-forward to 10 years later, at age 16, his adventurous, relentless personality earned him a job at State Farm Insurance in Marketing. As he began to further develop these skillsets, Johnathan was sought after for freelance graphic design, web design, social media, and miscellaneous branding work, and after a few years of balancing both his corporate role and his freelance work, he made the hard but promising decision and ventured away from corporate marketing and launched his own full-service marketing agency, FitTech Hosting  – just with himself, a friend, and a desk in a cluttered basement.

When he left his job at State Farm, he knew that failure wasn’t a choice – with him spending his savings, maxing out his credit cards, and leaving a stable job behind, he knew that his plan better work or he’d be eating ramen noodles and cat food for dinner. Pounding the pavement, pounding the phones, and putting his marketing skills to use, Johnathan began to acquire agency clients that were soon bankrolling the operation, and a year later allowing for him to hire a trusted team to help assist with each and every area, whether client-facing or internal – no one ever had any “assigned” roles and it was always “all-hands-on-deck” which really allowed for the FTH team to become closely knit.

FitTech Hosting has proven to be a profitable, career-advancing adventure, but after growing up and living in Southeast Wisconsin throughout his life, he decided to relocate to Sunny Southern California and left the management of FitTech Hosting vested in his employees ensuring that they continue to get the same quality customer service.

Johnathan is currently employed as the Brand Marketing Coordinator at BountifulApparel – a fashion and design eCommerce company in Los Angeles. While content with his current role, Johnathan is looking to continue on the path of career growth and is entertaining all reasonable employment offers.

Sussex Fresh Market

On June 28th, 2020, a now-deleted Facebook post stated that the local community attraction, the Sussex Farmers Market, no longer exists. The reasoning? No one knows. The group behind the market? Disappeared. Any evidence of the previous market taking place? Deleted by past management... Quite a strange combination of events, which lead our Agency Director, Johnathan Martin [...]
