Industry Veteran James Sims Appointed as Airgain’s Chief Executive Officer

Advanced antenna technologies leader, Airgain, has announced the appointment of James K. Sims as its new Chief Executive Officer. Sims first became involved with Airgain over a decade ago when his vision was to build a specialized wireless company by solving complex RF engineering problems across the technology ecosystem.

When Sims took over as Airgain’s interim CEO last May, he embarked on several course granularity initiatives that prioritized the company’s operational efficiencies while investing in R&D, realigning the sales and marketing efforts, and focusing on sustainable profitability. He believes these initiatives helped to secure the company’s long-term competitive position and above-average industry growth while expanding innovative and differentiated antenna solutions.

James K. Sims has served as Airgain’s Chairman of the Board since November 2003 and interim Chief Executive Officer since May 2018.
