RiPSIM Names Wireless Industry Leader Juan Carlos “JC” Lazcano as Vice President of Sales


ASHBURN, Va. — February 12, 2024RiPSIM Technologies Inc., developer of the world’s first software-defined eSIM ecosystem for wireless service providers and private network operators, has named Juan Carlos “JC” Lazcano as its vice president of sales.

“JC is highly respected in the rarified SIM world, and for good reason,” said Chris Jahr, RiPSIM cofounder and CEO. “He possesses exceptional business acumen, combined with technical competence and the ability to create enduring, trusted relationships with his clients. But I’m guessing people in the know will find it most interesting that RiPSIM is bringing together former adversaries to join forces in revolutionizing an industry long overdue for disruption.”

In Lazcano’s two-decade career in the technology and communications industry, he has helped companies and their customers navigate major inflection points in the wireless world, including the emergence of mobile payments, advances in network data protection and data security, and the adoption of SIM cards for wireless access credential when TDMA/CDMA networks transition to GSM standards.

“I can’t think of a more exciting place to work right now than RiPSIM, which has created a breakthrough eSIM solution that gives wireless carriers an unprecedented level of ownership and control of their authentication credentials,” said Lazcano. “Having worked in the mobile credentials industry for many years, and witnessing firsthand the inefficiencies associated with outsourcing eSIM lifecycle management to third parties, I am looking forward to working with the team that has the vision and technology to transform the eSIM industry.”

Known for his customer-centric approach and keen ability to solve complex problems, Lazcano has served as a trusted advisor to some of the most prolific global brands, including Verizon, T-Mobile, SWIFT and Freddie Mac.

He most recently served in strategic account management positions for Paris-based Thales (TAL’-es) Group, one of the top eSIM manufacturers globally; Amsterdam-based Gemalto, an international digital security company acquired by Thales; and Germany-based UTIMACO, maker of cybersecurity and compliance solutions. Lazcano earned a bachelor’s degree in electronic systems engineering and a master’s degree in management of information sciences (MIS) from Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico.
