Paradox has just announced the promotion and appointment of Adam Godson, President and Chief Product Officer, to the role of Chief Executive Officer.

Aaron Matos, who is the Founder of Paradox, is moving into the Executive Chairman role. 

“Serving Paradox continues to be the ultimate honour and I couldn’t be prouder of the progress we’ve made toward that goal. As we look to our next chapter, Adam is the ideal steward for Paradox’s future,” said Matos. “He’s passionate about recruiting and HR and he cares deeply about the people he serves. Adam is a great partner and we share an obsession for transforming this industry — and our clients’ organisations — for the better. I couldn’t be more excited for our clients and Team Paradox.”  

Godson, who started his career as an HR practitioner and served as the Chief Technology Officer at Cielo, joined Paradox in 2020 as Chief Product Officer and was promoted to President in 2023, leading Paradox’s global product and engineering teams.

“It’s an incredible privilege to follow Aaron as CEO and lead Paradox on our next phase of innovation and growth,” said Godson. “We’ve seen the impact that Conversational AI can have on our clients and we’re proud of building a different kind of software company — where care for our clients and the candidates we serve is what matters most.

As Executive Chairman, Matos will continue to serve as an advisor and mentor to Godson, Paradox’s Board of Directors, and the company’s executive team — focusing on developing and refining the company’s strategic vision and working collaboratively with the product team on future innovations.
