Richard Gurewitsch

Richard Gurewitsch is a serial entrepreneur with a passion for helping connect the people of the Carribean islands with the rest of the world. He was recently quoted describing his purpose: "During my entire business career, having been an immigrant myself, my focus always was to help underserved immigrant sectors in both the USA and Europe to develop an affordable platform that enables cost-effective ways to communicate with their friends and families back in their home countries".


Specifically, in 2010 Richard Gurewitsch started LLAMACUBA after the United States laws changed and opened telecommunications to Cuba. With a team of highly trained Cisco Engineers, they obtained Federal FCC Licenses to comply with all US rules and regulations. LLAMACUBA developed a VoIP platform with discounted prices on phone calls from the US to Cuba to serve a sector of the market that has been traditionally under-deserved. After 2010 they were very honored to expand services to Cuba from all European and Latin American Countries to help even more families stay connected. Then as technology became more scalable, Richard's company started providing phone top-ups (mobile refills) and went onto become one of the largest providers of top-up in the United States, with a massive presence on all Social Media channels.


Following the success of LLAMACUBA, Richard Gurewitsch founded HAITIPHONE in 2014 to serve another niche market that had been ignored by many other major phone companies. He and the team at Haitphone applied the same concept and in a few years, they were able to place Haiti Phone as one of the top-tier providers for Haiti as well.


In 2012, Richard Gurewitsch went on to found the SBG NETWORK GROUP LLC a well-recognized entity that encompasses many of the same services that he had created over the last 20 years in the telecommunication, internet, and virtual travel industries. SBG currently has offices in Miami, Florida, Mexico City, Cancun and Merida, Mexico, Santiago de Chile, Chile, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Montevideo, Uruguay.  Richard Gurewitsch is very excited that SBG Network is in the process of opening in Barcelona, Spain in March 2020, thus continuing the trend of connecting immigrants with their families still back at home in Central and South America. 


After experiencing such rapid growth in the telecommunications industry, Richard realized there was another way to serve the same clients - travel. That is why in 2018  they launched HOLIDAYS CARIBE leveraging a Florida Travel Seller License to offer excellent prices for superb hotels and air tickets around the world. With an emphasis on the Caribbean and beyond, Holidays Caribe has offices in both Miami, Florida and Cancun, Mexico.
