Joanna Sobran is the founder and CEO of MXOtech. She began her career in the healthcare industry, working for two 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 true 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.
Joanna is the visionary and driving force behind MXOtech, focusing on customer service, solution development, marketing, and strategy. Her talent for taking ideas and turning them into applicable solutions to help fuel a client's growth sets her apart from the competition. Joanna is determined to deliver a high-touch client experience through innovation, transparency, and project management. In 2018, MXOtech became the only women-owned IT company to hold its HITRUST cybersecurity certification.
Joanna dedicates her time and resources to supporting the local community and nonprofits. She takes on pro-bono work and partners with organizations like Upwardly Global and Year Up to offer their youth training and employment opportunities at MXOtech. She has been awarded recognition for her success as an entrepreneur, including the Deborah Sawyer Rising Star Award, Crain’s Chicago Business Notable Entrepreneurs, and ChannelPro’s Peer of the Year Award.
