Principal – Digital Marketing Strategy
Ron Mattocks grew up in rural northwest, Pennsylvania. Following high school, he joined the Army where he rose to rank of Captain, before a career as an executive with a national home builder in Texas where he held positions at the VP level overseeing Operations, Purchasing, and Sales and Marketing.
Recognizing the growing potential of the Internet, Ron switched his focus to digital marketing, consulting for companies such as GMC, ConAgra, Mattel, and others. During this time, he also published the book, Sugar Milk: What One Dad Drinks When He Can’t Afford Vodka and began writing regularly for sites such as the Huffington Post, Disney’s Babble, Business 2 Community, and the TODAY Show.
On a summer visit to Conneaut Lake Park, Ron became suddenly fascinated with the park’s origins, a fascination that lead to his current book project, and later would evolve into a passion for the county’s extensive history. Today Ron is the Director of Digital Marketing Services with at a marketing-technology (martech) agency in Indiana where he lives with his three sons. He graduated from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas with a degree in English Literature, and is a board member of the Crawford County Historical Societies.
