SEMA: What is the best advice you have ever received?

Matty Jones: “Don't be a wheelbarrow." The idea behind not being the guy who needs a push has carried me through my time at school, at work and in life.

SEMA: What keeps you in the industry?

MJ: I have always loved working with my hands, wrenching on things and working on trucks. I feel lucky to enjoy what I do every day!

SEMA: Where can you be found on a Saturday?

MJ: You can find me out on the lake fishing (on a boat or on the ice) or hanging around the firehouse.

SEMA: How do you prepare for an important meeting?

MJ: I make sure I’ve done my due diligence on what we will be talking about and be early. Early is on time.  

SEMA: If you could go to lunch with one industry leader, living or dead, who it would be and why?

MJ: I’d probably go out to lunch and hit some golf balls with the BuiltRight gang!
