Matt Heck

Tampa Director of Business Development

Hey there!

I’m Matt. Since graduating from Ball State in 2011, I have worked in media sales my whole career. My role as Director of Business Development at FTE gives me the opportunity to meet with lots of new businesses every week. The best part about my job is watching my clients have success from their marketing campaigns. In my free time, my wife and I spend most of our time with our two young kids. You can typically spot us at one of the local beaches in Tampa, kayaking around the bay, or visiting one of the many theme parks in Florida. We love being active, and I’ll try almost anything once!

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

I'd have to say skydiving on my 28th birthday.

What’s one song you’re embarrassed to admit you like?

Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice.

You can trade places with anyone for a day, who is it?

LeBron James.

You can go back in time, when and where, would you go?

No thank you, I've seen the movie Back to the Future too many times, so I know how crazy things could get. Haha!

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?

Do what you love to do, and then figure out how to make money at it. -Bill Rancic

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your (job) position?

Most people think that my job is to just sell ads and marketing ideas to businesses.
