AJ Fontana

AJ may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but assuming you don’t require Kryptonian jumping skills, he’s got you covered. He jumps into battle with you, completely immersing himself with a partnership mentality. That means sharing the good and the bad (we’d be lying if we claimed there was never any bad) because that’s what partners do.

AJ has over 20 years of marketing experience and a track record any hero would be proud of. He has worked with the likes of Amway, Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, Careerbuilder, Coca-Cola, Commerce Bank, Fireball Whisky, Magic House, PCS, the U.S. Army, USAA among many others. AJ’s a blockbuster guy who’s led countless high-profile marketing endeavors, but there’s no Hollywood flash in him. His reward is his client’s satisfaction.

In the interest of transparency, there are two things we have to mention, he’s still working on mastering x-ray vision and his flying is only so so. Still, he has no intention of kneeling before Zod.
