About Johnny Boy Marketing

Meet John & Carla Agliata

The Creative Guy & The Business Woman

Johnny Boy Marketing is a full-service freelance marketing agency designed around the mission “Great Work. On Time. No Hassles.” John has been in the professional marketing and communications world for nearly three decades, first as a newspaper journalist and then as a strategic communications expert well-versed in a wide variety of media. John has a passion for storytelling and is able to craft appealing narratives that are statistically proven to drive meaningful business results.

Carla is a passionate educator, first in the Dayton City Public Schools and then as a homeschooling mother to the couple’s children, Joey and Jonah. She has an astute financial and organizational mind (her homeschooling room’s bomb-just-went-off appearance notwithstanding) and masterfully brings order and structure to the couple’s business.

The business takes its name from John’s relationship with his paternal grandfather, Rocky, an Italian immigrant who left Sicily at age 16 and came, alone, to America to start a new life. He was John’s role model as a child, and every time Rocky saw John, the first thing he would say, in the thick Italian accent he never lost, was “Hey Johnny Boy!”

The family resides in rural Missouri outside St. Louis, along with their English bulldog and business mascot, Luna.
