Guilherme Paulus – Visionary, Patriot, And Success Story

Guilherme Paulus started in the tourism industry at the young age of 24 by becoming co-founder of CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. in 1972 with his partner, a Brazilian politician who later withdrew from the company leaving Guilherme in complete control.

Guilherme led the company to unimaginable heights with CVC growing exponentially and becoming Brazil’s and Latin America’s biggest tour operator. With the growth of CVC, it got noticed by investors and in late 2009, global private equity firm Carlyle Group bought 63.6% of the stake earning Guilherme Paulus quite the payout of $420 million.

Guilherme, rightly called the ‘Most Powerful Man in Brazilian Tourism’ looked forward and started his own chain of hotels called GJP Hotels and Resorts. He did so with the 2014 FIFA World Cup right around the corner which made having hotels near airports in several parts of Brazil extremely important.

He is not just looking to grow himself, the man that is part of the Forbes’ list of billionaires wants his country to progress and grow with him. It is with that intent that he started his own venture and it grew to have more than 10,000 employees all around Brazil.

His Midas touch with tourism isn’t based on luck, it’s his foresight into the changing economic climate of the country and recognizing what’s important that makes him a success.

Guilherme Paulus saw how the country was developing, as part of the BRIC nations, Brazil looks to be a global player very soon. Becoming a superpower is no longer a distant dream but a near reality. This revelation has made Guilherme think about the needs of the growing populace. Employment, always an important factor to consider in a growth of a nation as well as the need for a higher standard of living. It’s that need, Guilherme believes, he will be able to satisfy with his new venture – GJP Construction.

A construction company that not only provides employment for many more people in Brazil but also gives answers to the wants asked for higher income housing like Villas and Condominiums.

With such foresight and dedication to his country, it’s no surprise that he was chosen to be on the Board of Tourism of Brazil by the President. And to add yet another feather to his cap, Guilherme Paulus won the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from IstoÉ Dinheiro Magazine.
