In an era where Brazil had been struggling with economic instability, and life as an entrepreneur seemed impossible, Guilherme Paulus proved the world wrong. Shortly after completing his studies, he was lucky to secure an internship position at IBM. Paulus, however, didn’t last long in the post. He went out to live up his dreams and transform Brazil’s tourism sector.
In 1972, he partnered with Carlos Vicente to form CVC Tours. He currently serves as the chairman in the board of directors’ panel. Paulus managed to build CVC Tours to international standards. From the first store in Sao Paulo, CVC Tours expanded territories all across Brazil and now boasts of operating over a hundred stores presently. Although Guilherme made way for CVC Tours to be traded publicly in 2013, the company continued to grow to now a billion-dollar generating firm.
GJP Hotels and Resorts was Guilherme Paulus’ second masterpiece. Since GJP’s inception in 2005, the company has managed to build and manage a string of more than 20 luxury hotels and resorts. This development has caught the globe’s attention with one of the resorts, Wish Resort, winning the best golf hotel accolade in 2017 awarded by the World Golf Awards.
From time to time, you would like to wonder how Guilherme Paulus managed to build two empires from nothing. Paulus explains that he fell in love with the tourism industry and has shown it through his actions. He also attributes his success to the numerous healthy relationships he keeps with clients and employees. Paulus takes most of his time connecting with both employees and clients and getting to know their experiences with the ventures. Using this information, he is able to correct, improve and improvise where required.
Apart from working to see his businesses grow, Guilherme Paulus prides himself in lifting others. He actively participates in welfare programs targeted at fishing young potential leaders in the tourism industry. His organizations are also well-known for contributing to philanthropic activities that provide the mental and physical support to the less fortunate. Guilherme Paulus has achieved what most would dream of and plans to continue serving his country until the end.
