"At a time when the oil and gas industry is undergoing transformation led by global demand and technology advancements, new opportunities lie ahead for exploration and production breakthroughs," said Matin. "Paradigm is using a scientific approach to advance these innovations and support new upstream discoveries by our customers.  I look forward to leading the company through this next phase of growth."                                                                              

Founder and former CEO of Paradigm, Eldad Weiss, will continue his long time association with the company as non-executive chairman of the Board of Directors. "I am excited to be working alongside Arshad on the Board. We will continue to focus on strengthening Paradigm's position as the leading provider of upstream software solutions for the global oil and gas industry," said Weiss.

Apax Partners (, a leading global private equity investment firm and majority owner of Paradigm, managed the selection process.

"Arshad brings extensive experience with a track record of value creation through his vision, innovation and disciplined management approach in both public and private company context," said Jason Wright, senior partner Apax. "After a thorough search for the next Paradigm leader, Arshad was our clear choice to lead Paradigm and take the company to the next level."

He also led Seismic Micro-Technology (acquired by IHS) as president and CEO where he implemented rapid growth strategy while transforming a family-owned business into a professional organization. As president and COO of BindView Corporation (acquired by Symantec), Matin created significant shareholder value by leading the turnaround of the company.  He also led an enterprise security business at Symantec Corporation.
