Guilherme Paulus Strengthens Communities Through Travel

Guilherme Paulus is a seasoned entrepreneur and co-founder of CVC, Latin America’s largest tour operator. He established the company in 1972 at the age of 24 along with partner and politician Carlos Vicente Cerchiari in Santo Andre, Brazil. Four years later his partner left the organization, but under the leadership of Mr. Paulus, CVC has become a multi-billion dollar company and is still growing.

A major contributing factor to the growth of CVC was the partial sale of the company to the Carlyle Group in 2009. Company stock was offered on the stock exchange in 2013 and future plans include the opening of 100 new stores annually. Currently, there are at least 540 CVC locations in malls, hypermarkets and commercial galleries. Read more about Guilherme Paulus at terra.com
