The traits all true systems administrators share, though, are the unwavering dedication to making the Internet better, and mastery of all things infrastructure.
On January 27th, Brad Mitchell was officially inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame’s Internet Founders Branch. MojoHost’s CEO is excited to be part of the elite circle alongside world famous adult industry business owners and performers.
“We pride ourselves on having won many awards over the years, but there are a few that really stand out in my mind,” Mitchell said. “The first award we ever won was a milestone for us that we were doing something right, and having won Businessman of the Year was a very personal one for me. ‘Hall of Fame’ says something much more. It symbolizes lifelong dedication and a true lasting legacy.”
“Brad is one of the most caring and kind people I’ve had the pleasure to call my friend in this industry,” said Julie Larson of JuicyAds. “I admire the way he runs his business and the way he is able to focus on family while managing his company. He is someone we can all look up to and aspire to be like.”
However, being a “good guy” who built a company can only take you so far. At some point, performance is really what matters to clients and the retention of customers. Beyond its humble beginnings, MojoHost has met that challenge and now powers a large number of adult websites. If you make a couple quick Domain WHOIS searches you’ll see that MojoHost hosts some of the largest and most well-known companies in the industry, the ones that are synonymous with the industry itself.
“This induction is very well-deserved and long overdue,” said Joey Gabra, business development at New Media Services. “Brad Mitchell has consistently remained on the forefront of the tech solutions the whole team provides at MojoHost. Brad has made MojoHost a household name in the adult tech space… and he is proof that you can still be a tremendous success in business while being kind and courteous to everyone he comes in contact with.”
We strive to offer ‘more than managed’ hosting, which has led to more than 2000 clients using the MojoHost service over its lifetime. Mitchell is often found taking matters personally that most other CEOs or founders would delegate to lower level sales or tech support. His attention to detail and the value in each client has pushed the brand ahead of the rest.
“I’ve been hosting with Brad for several years now and I feel I’m at the perfect spot,” said Patrick The Hun, founder of The Hun. “Especially the 24-hour support is great. We internet peeps don’t always work at regular office hours and our visitors come 24 hours a day. A 24 hour a day support is a necessity in that case! They’re ready to think out of the box and act fast. On a more personal level, I do love to hang out with Brad and the whole MojoHost crew.”
Mitchell’s generosity and hospitality to clients and non-clients alike are so widely known that it has become traditional. We call these acts simply (and fittingly) as “Good Mojo.” Time has shown that in the case of MojoHost, the characteristics of a company’s leadership can become symbiotic with the company itself.
“Three Cheers to Brad Mitchell from everyone at Paxum!” said Ruth Blair, head of marketing for Paxum. “Brad is professional, dedicated, intelligent, highly approachable and a great person all-around! We can’t think of anyone more deserving to be inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame. As Brad himself often says, ‘That’s good Mojo!’”
MojoHost is probably better known for customer service than the actual services we sell, that now include hosting, CDN, virtual private servers, domain registration, and more.
