Richard Gurewitsch, an Immigrant Himself, Strives to Create Businesses that Help Fellow Latin Immigrants

Richard Gurewitsch knows that companies that care about immigrants and helping latin families and friends communicate and spend time together are what really make a difference for people. That’s why the companies he has founded and is CEO at, LlamaCuba and LatinPhone, as well as HaitiPhone and HolidaysCaribe, aim to do just that.

Finding Means of Communication Between Cuba and Other Countries

Richard Gurewitsch started LlamaCuba after the United States opened telecommunications to Cuba in 2010. He and a team of highly trained Cisco engineers were able to obtain federal FCC licenses to comply with all US rules and regulations. They then developed a VoIP platform with discounted prices in phone calls from the United States to Cuba.

Richard Gurewitsch says that he started this company to “serve a sector of the market that have been traditionally under-served.” Although the company started with communications between the US and Cuba, after 2010, Gurewitsch and his team were able to expand services to Cuba from all European and Latin American countries.  As technology became available, LlamaCuba even started providing phone top-up (mobile refills) to become one of the largest providers of top-up in the USA with massive presence in social media channels.

LlamaCuba has been awarded with a prestigious A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Richard Gurewitsch Continues Helping Immigrants Communicate With HaitiPhone

Following LlamaCuba’s success, Mr. Gurewitsch and his team founded HaitiPhone in 2014. Gurewitsch says that he started HaitiPhone with the purpose to “serve a niche market that has been ignored by many other major phone companies.”

The team applied the same concept that they used for LlamaCuba, and within a few years they were able to place HaitiPhone on top tier providers for communication for Haiti as well.

Richard Gurewitsch Has Companies in over 5 Latin Language-Speaking Countries

In 2012, Richard Gurewitsch founded and incorporated SBG Network Group LLC, which encompasses many of the services he created over 20 years in the telecommunication, internet, and virtual travel industries.

Currently, SBG Network Group LLC has office in Miami, Florida, USA, Mexico City, Cancun, and Merida, Mexico, Santiago de Chile, Chile, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Montevideo, Uruguay, and a new office opening soon in Barcelona, Spain.

On why he creates these companies to serve immigrants and the Latin community, Richard Gurewitsch says, “During my entire business career and being an immigrant myself, my focus always was to help underserved immigrant sectors in the USA and Europe to promote and have affordable access to communicating wth their families in their original countries.”
