Web Hosting Hub’s Annual Holiday Party

As another year comes to an end, so too, come the holiday parties and new years resolutions.  This year, Web Hosting Hub celebrated the holiday season and the end of the year by treating all its 200 plus employees to a night of fine dining, open bar, laughs, prizes and of course our twice a year profit sharing distribution. Our profit sharing scheme makes this time of year all that more exciting, because all eligible employees of Web Hosting Hub receive a bonus depending on the overall profitability of the company… and this year was another profitable year for Web Hosting Hub.  I believe that  this is just one of the many reasons that we are doing so well as a company, because when you have a stake in the success of your company, then by default we are going to put in that extra work to make sure the customer is happy and that our products are the best on the market.

Looking back on this year, I have seen the company change, grow, and evolve with new innovations being implemented or that are currently in the pipeline to be released next year.  This last year was quite a learning experience for me professionally and I am really excited to be a part of the Web Hosting Hub Team going into 2015. Wishing everyone out there a very happy holiday season and New Year and we look forward to serving all of you next year and for the years to come.

How did you get started in the web hosting field?

I have a BS Computer Science with a minor in Network and Data Communications and have always been in the “computer world”. I spent much of my early career working with various types of servers & networking components until one day I figured out I would rather work with people instead of machines so I left that line work and got into Sales and Marketing. After a few years I decided to open a new business with my father outsourcing managed services for small businesses that couldn’t afford an in-house IT Department. Of course one of the main services is Web Hosting & Web Design. After doing that for a few years Web Hosting Hub caught my eye and decided to come work for one of the best web hosting companies in the industry! Almost 4 years later I still love coming into work every day and have the privilege of working with the best team around.

What’s your current role at Web Hosting Hub? What do you like most about it?

I have the privilege to work with all of our various partners here at Web Hosting Hub no matter how small or large. Those partners range from small website owners who join our affiliate program to help spread the word about our amazing products and services all the way to industry leaders who reach millions of people on a daily basis. No matter how small or large the partner, they all bring something unique to the table and I really enjoy working with each of them to ensure that Web Hosting Hub can offer the best hosting product suite in the market!

Coolest aspect of your job?

I love to travel and it’s even better when your company has so many places to send you! One month I may have 2 WordCamp’s and 3 Trade Shows to attend all over the country and the next month I get to visit a partner to talk about how we can offer our customers a better hosting experience. For example in January I will be attending WordCamp Phoenix, Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas, PressNomics back in Phoenix, and not to mention visiting my team in Los Angeles then planning a trip to visit some partners in Australia in February. You can’t tell me that’s not a pretty cool part of the job!

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I’m 6’4”, a Taurus, enjoy long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners… Just playing. As you can tell I am loving my job here at Web Hosting Hub and if you have an idea on how we can work together please contact me anytime! I love to meet new people and hear new ideas!

What’s one word that would describe your personality?

Left-Handed for those 10% of you who are a southpaws you know what I am talking about!

Position: Affiliate Marketing Operations 
Web Hosting Hub team member since March 2010

Last week’s blog post focused somewhat on the company culture here at Web Hosting Hub and I wanted to continue with that theme and introduce you to one of our team members, Maria Abugan. I believe it’s important that we recognize those who are behind the scenes and who help make Web Hosting Hub one of the best web hosting companies out there. At this company, it’s about the people and for the people. Finally, having great web hosting doesn’t happen without dedicated personnel.

How did you get started in the web hosting field?

Before working at Web Hosting Hub, I had worked with a few different ad agency creative departments and helped coordinate multiple web development projects. You can’t get a website online without a web host, so that’s how I was initially introduced to web hosting.

What’s your current role at Web Hosting Hub? What do you like most about it?

My current role is handling Affiliate Marketing Operations. I like the diversity of the tasks with this role. Each day is slightly different and I’m always learning something new.

Coolest gadget you own, want, or have read about?

I’d like to one day own a custom electric guitar that has a touchpad & synth built into it. I love both organic and electronic instruments, so the combination of the two would be amazing.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I LOVE music, it’s a big part of my life outside of the office, whether creating/playing it or going to concerts.

What’s one word that would describe your personality?

I’d say “detail-oriented.” This is why I naturally swayed toward project management, which was my initial role when I first started at Web Hosting Hub.

Halloween and Why We Have Fun

Here at Web Hosting Hub we like to HAVE FUN and nothing beats a costume contest on Halloween. This years costumes ranged from the creative to spooky and everything in between and you could say that this diversity mirrors the uniqueness that everyone brings to our relaxed and positive centered company culture. Halloween is a reminder of how we at Web Hosting Hub celebrate our diversity all year round, because it’s what makes us unique and great as a web hosting company. Plus, conformity is boring and does not foster an environment of innovation, inclusiveness or ‘thinking outside the box’ on complex issues.

We work in an industry that supports the free flow of information, expression, innovation and sharing of ideas and it wouldn’t make much sense if we didn’t hold  true to these values ourselves. These are just some of the things that make working at Web Hosting Hub so rewarding. In addition to the lavish costumes this year, we had our weekly company lunch and engaged in a few good hours of bowling. We do all these things, not just because it’s fun, but because building a strong company culture and team is what has helped drive our success.

Make sure to check out all the fun and creative costumes of those who took part in the Halloween spirit and costume contest this year!
