For Guilherme Paulus Its All About Value Addition

Brazil has proved to be attractive to visitors and this is one of the key reasons why investing in the country’s tourism industry has been so rewarding for Guilherme Paulus. Today he is listed in the Forbes magazine billionaires list as one of the richest men in the country. Guilherme Paulus did not always have this wealth as he was not born in a well-off family. In fact, the reason he did not study medicine was because his family would not afford his college fee and thus at 17 he opted to become an intern at IBM. This would expose him to a whole new world of possibilities while at the same time reinforcing his passion for pursuing a career in another sector other than computing and mathematics.

By the time he left employment to start CVC with his partner Carlos Vicente Cerchiari he knew very well that the tourism sector offered him the best chance of succeeding. What followed was a series of challenges until the company eventually took of and clients started coming in. This would make the company profitable and at the same time his profile as an investor was steadily rising. In 2005 Guilherme Paulus realized that there existed another opportunity that could be tapped. The opportunity lay in offering accommodation and this is how he would end up registering GJP.

GJP which is simply the abbreviations of his full name would run a chain of hotels and resorts all over Brazil and bring the same quality of service that CVC was offering its clients. By this time a private equity fund had bought a majority share at CVC for approximately four hundred million dollars and Guilherme Paulus was able to put in more money into his new venture. Today GJP has expanded to more locations and serves thousands of clients annually in its more than 3000 rooms spread across Brazil. For the hotelier this is more important than the wealth that he has created. He believes that not only is he offering a needed service but is able to create sustainable jobs for many more in the country.
