The beauty of starting a business is always in the way it is able to levitate the lives of others, improve the wellbeing of job seekers and generate prosperity in communities or the country itself. It is always the passion of the risk-takers and business leaders that such wealth generation is made possible in the world. One of these risk-takers in Brazil is Guilherme Paulus, the man behind Latin America’s largest tour operator, CVC and The GJP Hotels and Resorts.
Being the tour operator of CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. is a great achievement in itself, but doing this at age 24 in 1972 makes the feat even more remarkable. Which is why reading the article from Istoe Dinheiro about Guilherme Paulus’ new recognition as The Entrepreneur of The Year in 2017 is hardly surprising. In the feature, it is revealed that under Guilherme Paulus’ leadership, there’s at least 20 units of his hotel enterprise that are scattered all over Brazil. This means more jobs are being generated, and more families are given the livelihood that they need for them to experience the fantastic life that they deserve.
Guilherme Paulus is already 68 years old today, and yet his passion for the hospitality business is still not stopping. He is even known to be the man who is investing about R$ 600 million in the hospitality industry in Brazil. This is because Paulus believes that there’s so much potential in the art of hospitality that can help Brazilians reach their dreams. The report also featured some of the new initiatives and strategies that Paulus employs in his hotel enterprise to gather more following. His network of hotels can be divided into five-star hotels, then three stars and the premium line. This diverse way of dividing the hotels means that his business can attract different target markets.
At the Revista Hoteis is also another highlight in the career of Paulus. Paulus has been invited to be a motivational and opening event speaker at the Top Seller Event, 5th Edition. This event is one of the most fantastic, sought-after and attended events in Brazil that was held at the prestigious Mabu Thermas Grand Resort. He captured a lot of listeners with the stories that he shared about how he succeeded in starting CVC and his other insight about entrepreneurship. With the current success that Paulus already has, he was the best to speak for such event.
