Eric Nelson to join as Chief Revenue Officer, Jessica Rush as Chief Marketing Officer, and Fay Hennessy as VP of Talent.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - November 8, 2018 -- Paradox, the leading Assistive Intelligence platform for talent acquisition and candidate experience, announced the expansion of the company’s leadership team with the appointment of three new senior roles: Chief Revenue Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and VP of Talent.

“I’ve said for many years that recruiting is a people game and that the key to an organization’s success is hiring the right people. We’ve had an incredible first two years at Paradox with market leading growth, but we’re just getting started,” said Aaron Matos, Founder & CEO, Paradox. “We are excited to expand our executive team with three proven leaders who share our passion for talent acquisition and commitment to creating a better experience for organizations and their talent.

Eric Nelson will serve as Chief Revenue Officer for Paradox, responsible for the company’s global growth and expansion strategy. Nelson is an industry veteran who most recently served as SVP of Sales for HireVue, where he led the high growth North American sales organization for the last six years. Prior to HireVue, Nelson spent nine years in leadership and sales positions with cloud-based talent management solution, Taleo.

Jessica Rush joined the team in early September as Chief Marketing Officer, responsible for driving the company’s brand, digital and experiential marketing efforts, and sales enablement. Previously, Rush served as CEO of, where she also led digital marketing, channel partnerships and client experience. Rush began her career at local job board,, where she held marketing and sales leadership roles.

Fay Hennessy is appointed to VP of Talent, with leadership responsibility for talent acquisition, talent development, and performance improvement. Hennessy joins Paradox from her most recent consulting role at EY, where she partnered with corporate executives to solve business challenges, including organization alignment, performance improvement, strategic planning, and people and process change management.

Paradox, which launched in late 2016, was founded with the belief that recruiters should spend their time with candidates, not software. After decades of founding and growing recruitment software and media companies, Matos noticed a striking trend. Walking into almost any corporate office, talent acquisition teams are glued to their computers.

“Most recruiters tell us they spend 80% of their time doing administrative work and 20% engaging with candidates. We’re on a mission to flip that ratio through Assistive Intelligence,” said Matos. “That message is resonating with talent acquisition leaders and teams who are committed to finding the best talent for their organization. Olivia is helping them transform their recruiting and that’s why our business is experiencing triple digit growth.”
