Zoom Communications has announced the appointment of Matthew Saxon as Chief People Officer, effective immediately. He takes over from Lynne Oldham, who joined investment, banking, and finance platform Stash in February this year. 

Based in the US, Saxon joins Zoom from Meta, where he was Vice President of People Operations and headed the tech giant's global People Operations organisation. Before that, he was Senior Vice President Compensation, HR Operations and Shared Services, at US-based health insurance provider Humana. He has significant international experience as well, having headed the complete HR function for the Asia Pacific and Middle East region at Motorola Solutions, and earlier in his career, held several HR leadership positions with Campbell Soup Company in Australia.

In his new role at Zoom, Saxon will support the company's continued growth in the post-pandemic period, including the scaling of all people management elements from culture to organisational design, talent acquisition, engagement, training and development, employee experience, and infrastructure. He will report to Aparna Bawa, Zoom’s Chief Operating Officer.

"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,” said Bawa.
