Guilherme Paulus Helping Change The Face Of Brazil By Giving A Boost To Tourism

The tourism industry of Brazil has been growing at a rapid pace in the last few decades. The part of the contributions for the growth of the tourism industry in Brazil goes to CVC Brazil; a company started by Guilherme Paulus when he was just twenty-four. Under the leadership and guidance of Guilherme Paulus, CVC Brazil has become the largest tour operators in not only Brazil but all of Latin America.

After he worked at IBM for a while, he was approached by Casa Faro to join as an airfare salesman. During this time, he got to know more about the tour and travel business. It helped him develop the idea of starting his own company by the name of CVC Brazil, which has now gone on to become one of the largest tour operators in the world.

Guilherme Paulus has won many awards in Brazil and from other countries due to the success he has achieved as a businessman and his contributions to the tourism industry. He is also the founder of the GJP Hotels and Resorts, which currently has 19 properties in different locations in the country. The success of both CVC Brazil and GJP Hotels and Resorts can be attributed to the leadership and business skills of Guilherme Paulus. After he worked in the tour and travel business for some years, he understood what the people are looking for. It is why he started many different tour and travel packages that weren’t available earlier. He was one of the few people to take tourism in Brazil seriously and try to attract tourists from different parts of the world to visit their beautiful country and was quite successful.

Guilherme Paulus said in the interview that one of the good habits that he has continued till now even after becoming the chairman of CVC is that he continues to monitor and supervise the day to day operations of the company. It has helped him stay connected to the ground level employees as well as the customers. It helps him get the information he needs from time to time that allows him to make strategic business decisions.
