Twenty-four-year-old Guilherme Paulus started his first company in the tourism industry with the aim of revolutionizing the sector. The name of the company is the CVC Tour Company. The company was established at a time when the tourism industry in Brazil was at its peak with several numbers of tourists trickling into the country for its tourist sites.
CVC Tour Company basically offers services like giving tour guides, directing tourists to the best destinations that they have not visited before and are fun and memorable. The company also directs the tourists to the best hotels and resorts to stay in, the best foods to take and the best souvenir to take back home among many other services. For years, Guilherme Paulus run the entire CVC on his own after buying out his two-year politician of a partner. He then sold a part of the company to a private equity firm but still remains part of the management of the company with more than thirty-five percent of the company’s shares.
The launch of GJP Hotels and Resorts
After years of directing tourists to the best accommodation areas in the country, Guilherme Paulus realized that with the tour business and the influence he has, it would be a wise investment to start his own hotel and resort business so that he wouldn’t have to send clients to other businesses but rather would offer his clients the full experience. so he launched GJP Hotels and resorts a few years before he gave up full control of CVC by selling part of the company. the company has since then developed more than twenty luxury resorts in different parts of the country that Paulus operates. His company has also been commissioned by the government several times to partake on hotel and resort development projects during the world cup series and the Olympics that the country has hosted over the years.
Guilherme Paulus was named the Hotelier of the Year and is recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year in Brazil. He has also accumulated a net worth of more than a billion dollars over the years and his companies are considered to be leading in their respective industries.
