Renowned Technology Innovator and Open Systems Advocate, Leo D’Angelo, Named CTO at MPower Systems
High Tech Entrepreneur and Systems Architect Joins Leading CRM Firm for Nonprofits
DALLAS--MPower Systems – provider of the most open, flexible, and powerful software for fundraising and constituent relationship management (CRM) for nonprofits – today announced the appointment of Leo D’Angelo as the company’s Chief Technology Officer.
A technology visionary with a longstanding passion for open solutions, 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.
"We've already experienced the unique value that Leo brings to MPower and the nonprofit community, more broadly," said Mike Clark, Chief Information Officer of RBC, an MPower client. "He is extending MPower's open approach to software and technology so nonprofits can build the best possible technology solutions for their organizations by easily integrating best-of-breed products that we choose -- versus having to accept products that may be inferior from vendors with closed or proprietary systems."
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 (NASDAQGS: JCOM), 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. Leo 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, Leo 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, Leo 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.
“Joining MPower is the perfect marriage of my career in software development and personal passion for helping organizations that make a difference in our world,” said D’Angelo. “I am excited about continuing to ‘push the envelope’ in developing even more open and flexible solutions to benefit the nonprofit sector.”
