Guilherme Paulus is a businessman in the tourism and hospitality industries. He co-founded CVC which started out in 1972 as a small travel agency. It was based in Santo Andre which is located in the Sao Paulo state of Brazil. His leadership led to CVC eventually becoming the biggest retail tourism firm in Brazil and the largest travel company in Latin America.
He was born in Sao Paulo in 1949. Guilherme Paulus earned a business administration degree and started CVC soon after. His business partner getting this company going was Carlos Vicente Cerchiari who moved on to other things not long after getting the company established. Guilherme Paulus is said to be a very innovative and collaborative leader which resulted in his company being able to offer more products and services to tourists than any other company in the industry.
A few years ago he sold most of CVC in a $750 million deal. He retained 8% ownership, however. In 2017 he started a hotel chain called GJP Group and he is this organization’s president. His hotel chain builds and operates four categories of hotels. These are Wish, which are five-star hotels, Prodigy which are four-star hotels, Linx which are three-star hotels, and Saint Andrews which is his most premium group of hotels and is located in Gramado, Grande do Sul. His hotels have already won awards with the Wish Resort Golf Convention being named by the World Golf Awards as the best Brazilian golf hotel in the country. Near to this hotel and golf course he also built his first condominium project which has 109 units.
In addition to running GJP Group, Guilherme Paulus also still serves as the chairman of the board at CVC. He says that with both of his companies he is in the business of selling dreams to consumers.
