Industry veteran Carlos Rodriguez joins Prepay Nation to lead USA division

Berwyn, PA  September 21, 2015 — Prepay Nation, a leading provider of cross-border prepaid mobile airtime transfers, has welcomed chief operations and business development executive Carlos Rodriguez to their team as President of Prepay Nation USA. Rodriguez will be responsible for overall company growth in the US market, helping to expand Prepay Nation’s international airtime transfer.

With technical expertise and an entrepreneurial spirit, Rodriguez has over 27 years of delivering results through innovation, common sense management and a “Make it Your Own” approach. He has created customer loyalty by delivering excellence and providing leadership. He most recently served as Chief Operating Officer at Blackstone* where Rodriguez oversaw 275 employees throughout the US and Caribbean, that generated over $375 million in annual revenue.

“My goal is for Prepay Nation USA to become the industry leader,” said Rodriguez, “and to take the business to the next level of growth.” Rodriguez, part of the core team that brought international Top-up to the United States, said becoming President of Prepay Nation USA was the perfect match. “On the distribution side, I worked with Prepay Nation as a vendor. I am thrilled to move over to the vendor side, and work closely with Anurag Jain, CEO of Prepay Nation, who I have known for many years through the business.”

“Carlos was part of the core team which built one of the biggest airtime and prepaid distribution organizations in the United States. They were one of the first ones to sell airtime electronically and still hold the patent for that. Carlos is very well respected in the prepaid and telecom space. His experience in the telecom industry, building and managing a large organization and his deep understanding of prepaid distribution were the main factors in hiring him for this position,” commented Jain.

Prepay Nation has grown at an exponential rate over the last few years. “This is the time for us to have the right processes in place and an organizational structure that supports the growth we have had and which we anticipate over the next few years. Carlos will be the right fit to put that in place because of his wealth of experience and knowledge,” concluded Jain.
