Guilherme Paulus is one heck of a guy when it comes to the tourism industry in Brazil. His success can be attributed to a passion in serving the public and his community. For Guilherme Paulus, one of the great joys of the business is seeing jobs being created for fellow Brazilians. The hotels and resorts that he opens up employs fellow countrymen.
In the early ’70s, he co-founded CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. In the middle 2000s, he founded another successful company called GJP Hotels and Resorts. The hard work that he puts into his business has paid off; he is currently worth over a billion dollars.
CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A.used to be a small-time company located in Sao Paolo. However, as time went on, it became one of the hugest travel companies in Latin America. The company is currently held by the public, and a group of market executives leads it.
Guilherme Paulus was born in the year 1949—just after WWII. He devoted his entire career to the tourism industry. Guilherme Paulus has invested much energy and faith in the company, taking it to a whole new level of sophistication. His company has more to offer potential clients—more than just the typical travel packages. His company offers a wide range of experiences for everyone. Knowing that he is providing so many more opportunities to people—pertaining to leisure—is another thing that adds fulfillment to his career.
In 2009, the businessman attempted to take CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. to a higher level of success by getting support from a global investment fund. In the pursuit of doing this, he sold part of the company to Carlyle Group in the late 2000s.
Currently, his companies are in the process of successfully running hotels and opening new ones. One of more recent ones to open up was St. Andrew’s Mountain. Located in the mountains of Gramado, it offers cozy, Victorian-esque interiors and high up views of mountains. This is definitely a great place for those who like more mountainous, temperate-looking settings.
