Fintech company Sezzle has announced Executive Director and Chief Revenue Officer Paul Paradis has been promoted to the newly created role of company President. His new role reflects the growth of the company and has been created to allow for a focus on a broader set of growth initiatives. PayPal executive Veronica Katz will take over as Chief Revenue Officer.
"As a co-founder, Paul Paradis has been an invaluable partner for me since Day One," said Executive Chairman and CEO Charlie Youakim. "He knows our business better than anyone and his new role will allow the entire organization to benefit from Paul's expansive knowledge and experience in building Sezzle. Paul's move to President leaves big shoes to fill in the CRO role, but Veronica Katz is just the right person to fill them."
“This move enables me to focus on our growing expansion efforts in new markets and provide stewardship to some of our core strategic initiatives," said Mr. Paradis. "I look forward to assisting Veronica and the revenue team, and supporting and bringing to fruition an array of vertical and horizontal growth initiatives."
Ms. Katz comes to Sezzle from PayPal, where she has worked in a variety of positions since 2011. She most recently served as Vice President of Global Accounts, and will lead Sezzle’s business development, focusing on enterprise-level accounts.
"I am so thrilled to be part of the Sezzle team and help them accelerate their growth," said Ms. Katz. "Sezzle has an impactful product, an amazing mission-driven company culture, and incredibly talented people. There is a lot of synergy with this new role and my previous responsibilities at PayPal – I will definitely be hitting the ground running."
