Founding and Vision

mxHero is founded and led by Alexis Panagides, a former consultant to the World Bank in Brazil and an early email pioneer. As the internet took off in the mid-1990s, Alexis started a major email technology provider that grew to serve government agencies, telecom providers and multi-nationals among others. With the web still in its infancy, these clients were already supporting 100,000 individual email accounts and serving millions of emails per day.

Today, companies are facing new issues with email – increased volume and size, lower productivity, virus and security threats, global accessibility- the list goes on. mxHero is constantly innovating to meet these challenges head-on.

That means enabling companies to oversee, analyze, and control email flow. mxHero seeks to tap into the wealth of information that flows through this medium, and provide an open-source platform for developers to offer innovation in this space.

Alexis and his team have worked together for a decade - bringing constant improvement to this thought-to-be-mature technology. mxHero is registered in the state of Delaware and the company is privately funded and backed by angel and institutional investors.


Apps developed for mxHero’s platform work with any email management program, including Gmail, Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange. More than 9,000 companies with 850,000 users have added mxHero to their email capabilities. Among these features include open and URL click tracking, attachment tracking, self-destructing emails, email read receipts and the ability to schedule an email for later.
