MPower Systems Names CTO

  • February 19, 2008
MPower Systems, a provider of software for fundraising and constituent relationship management (CRM) for nonprofits, has appointed Leo D'Angelo as the company's Chief Technology Officer.

D'Angelo has more than two decades of broad-ranging experience--from founding successful high-tech companies to developing innovative software and systems for some of the biggest names in Corporate America. At MPower, D'Angelo heads software development, services and support functions.

D'Angelo established himself as a leading-edge technologist in the 1980s when he designed and implemented a groundbreaking, open technology infrastructure for Fidelity Investments' next-generation equity trading floor. With financial backing from Fidelity, D'Angelo then launched a subsidiary company, Devonshire Technologies, to market similar solutions to the broader investment community.

Subsequently, as CTO of J2 Global Communications, the world's largest online fax services company, Leo developed and managed the first service for sending and receiving faxes anywhere one can access email. As part of the management team, he helped lead J2 during a period of tremendous growth--to more than 9 million customers and from $5 to more than $35 per share. D'Angelo joined J2 after the company acquired the firm he founded, Timeshift, which created and marketed a communications platform for purchasing online communication services.



Most recently prior to MPower, D'Angelo was CTO of Dragon Media, which offers email, Web marketing and lead generation solutions for higher education and whose clients include University of Phoenix, the largest online university. Before Dragon Media, he served as vice president of Product Development for Corprasoft, a top software vendor for Fortune 500 in-house legal departments. At Corprasoft, Leo worked with Aetna, Boeing, BMW North America, Goldman Sachs and Honeywell, and helped orchestrate the company's acquisition.
