AMERICATEL/1010-123

In 1997, Americatel was a $12 million telecom boutique owned by Entel Chile, the former state tele-monopoly.

Created collateral materials in US English to market business-to-business services. Then the company launched a campaign of events, direct mail, and television featuring Latin TV personality Don Francisco to sell pre-paid, dial-1, and 1010-123 dial-around services to US Hispanics. Created and produced the print, in Latin Spanish.

By 2002, Americatel was a $300 million common carrier. Its Chilean owners spun off the company, now based in Maryland.
