Within recent years, the tourism sector has boomed in Brazil. People have realized how beautiful of a destination Brazil is. There are more opportunities than ever before to travel to Brazil. Much of this has to do with the hard work of entrepreneurs in the services sector such as Guilherme Paulus.
Guilherme Paulus is one of the most well-known entrepreneurs in the Brazilian tourism industry. In 1972, him and another man founded a small tourism company called CVC Brasil Operadora e Agemcia de Viagens. Over the decades, CVC Brasil Operadora e Agemcia de Viagens grew to be one of the largest tourism companies in Brazil. The company is responsible for the existence of many hotels and resorts in the country. In the early to mid 2010s, CVC owned about 15 establishments and planned on building many more. Around that time, it was known that the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics were going to be held in Brazil. With this in mind, Guilherme Paulus decided that it would be a good idea to build more hotels. He specifically planned to build hotels near transit hubs such as airports.
Guilherme Paulus also got his feet wet in the airline industry. In 2006, he acquired Webjet, an airline company. Under his guidance, Webject turned into Brazil’s third leading airline. It served more than 20 cities and consisted of about 20 planes. When Paulus first purchased the company, he only had one plane under his wing. In 2011, Paulus sold Webject to Gol.
In the mid-2000s, he started a company called GJP Hotels and Resorts. Like every other company under his wing, it grew exponentially and became very successful. GJP started off with one establishment under its wing, and is now considered one of the largest chains of national hotels in the country of Brazil.
The hard work of Guilherme Paulus is paying off for the country of Brazil, as well as for him, personally. New jobs are being created with every establishment that he opens. Local economies, as well as the national economy, are being helped.
