Guilherme Paulus is the co-founder of CVC Brasil, and he recently picked up the Entrepreneur of the Year award. CVC has also recently been recognized as the largest tour operator in the whole of Latin America. Paulus originally worked with IBM when he was younger and has always been a driven entrepreneur with an ambitious attitude.
Guilherme Paulus started up CVC with Carlos Vicente Cerchiari and did so in the city of his birth, São Paulo. Around a decade ago, he decided to sale a piece of the company to the Carlyle Group, who has helped CVC to expand even more. Today, the company makes over $5 billion a year and continues to excel in the tourism sector in Brazil. With new locations cropping up in malls all over Brazil every day, the company is expecting to continue to be the number one tourist agency in the nation.
Guilherme Paulus has always focused on being as socially accountable as possible. He has made sure that CVC has been a part of many different positive causes, and one of these is the PIET project. This organization is in existence to offer disadvantaged youth educational opportunities that they wouldn’t have, otherwise. Paulus has also been a part of efforts to support the National Project of Professional Initiation in Tourism and has donated to the Dr. Klaide Care and Education Institution for many years.
Guilherme Paulus is proud to be a partner with other tourism companies and hotel groups that continue to create employment opportunities for people. The French government recognized his work to develop tourism in its nation, and he has also been recognized by the Brazilian government for the work he has done.
While attending college, Paulus studied business administration, and this gave him a headstart in the tourism industry. He has drawn on his other entrepreneurial abilities, over the years, to make new connections and come up with new concepts in his industry. He was able to build GJP Hotels & Resorts in 2005, which has continues to run as a larger chain of hotels in Brazil. Paulus expects to do many other great things during his career, which continues to be a notable one.
