Matthew Saxon will join the company as chief people officer, effective immediately.

Saxon brings more than 20 years of experience in human resources and people operations. He was most recently Meta people operations vice president and previously Humana compensation, HR operations, and shared services senior vice president. Saxon will lead Zoom's people experience team and report to chief operating officer Aparna Bawa.

Saxon will help Zoom's continued growth and help scale all elements of the organisation, including culture, organisational design, talent acquisition, engagement, training and development, employee experience, and infrastructure.

"Our Zoomies are at the core of everything we do, and we know that having the right leader in place to help shape the future of Zoom's workforce will allow us to better serve our customers' evolving needs," Bawa says.

"We are excited to welcome Matthew, who has a deep understanding of the complexities today's workforce is facing, and we are confident that his skill set will help elevate and strengthen Zoom as we navigate the next phase of work together," Bawa adds.

"I was drawn to Zoom's clarity in its core value of care. It is obvious in everything the company does, but most importantly, it's clear the leadership team genuinely cares about employees," Saxon says.

"Zoom has completely transformed the way people and businesses connect, and I'm excited to help drive the company forward by elevating and advocating for our employees.

"Together, Zoom will continue to lead and demonstrate how companies can thrive to drive successful business outcomes."
