Joanna Mirov

Joanna Mirov began her career in the healthcare industry, working for successful women entrepreneurs. She later moved into IT as a technical recruiter, where she recognized the importance of hiring the right people for the right job. 
Joanna took the knowledge and confidence she built from these positions to launch her own company, MXOtech, in 2005. She drew her inspiration from her mentors as she grew a successful woman-owned enterprise, created career growth paths for her employees, and fostered a positive impact on her community and clients. In 2018, MXOtech became the only women-owned IT company to hold its HITRUST cybersecurity certification. 
Joanna takes on pro-bono work and partners with organizations like Upwardly Global and Year Up to offer youth training and employment opportunities at MXOtech. 
She has been recognized for her support of other women-led businesses and for her success as an entrepreneur, including the 2021 Enterprising Women of the Year Award, Top 15 Businesswomen in Illinois, Deborah Sawyer Rising Star Award, Crain’s Chicago Business Notable Entrepreneurs, and ChannelPro’s Peer of the Year Award.
