With the help of a Brazilian political figure, Guilherme Paulus co-founded CVC. It was in 1972 at the early stages of his youth. Guilherme was an ambitious 24-years-old young man. Four down the line, Paulus was left to continue operations of the venture on his own.
Under his leadership, the South African based Brasil Operadora e-Agencia de Viagens agency has emerged to be the largest tour operator in Latin America. Additionally, Paulus serves as the President at GJP Hotels Network. It is the largest group of hotels operating in Brazil. Following the recent boom of the tourism industry in Brazil, Guilherme is among the billionaires as listed by Forbes.
Guilherme Paulus graced the 2017 Top Seller Entrepreneurship Event as the guest speaker of the day. During the event, he shared his career achievements and his journey towards the ownership of CVC and GJP brands in Brazil. He also cites how his internship at IBM served as a significant base in his career. The opportunity enabled him to explore computing which he heavily relies on while carrying out his daily operations.
Moreover, getting the position of tourism salesperson was one of the greatest milestones in the tourism industry. While at it, the idea of designing engaging and fun activities for customers came up during a trip to Buenos Aires. That particular trip comprising a group of French individuals turned out boring; giving way for a great business idea for Guilherme Paulus.
During his tenure at Casa Faro travel agency, Guilherme Paulus desired to establish his own tour firm. Nevertheless, he was close to achieving his dreams after getting a proposal from a politician to start a travel agency during one of the trips. Guilherme shared the news with his boss and since then CVC hit the market. Paulus continues to generate new and thrilling ideas for his clients with an aim of maintaining relevance in the highly competitive industry. His customers are always expectant of new experiences on their trips.
One of the major breakthroughs at CVC was the introduction of the first ship to Brazil in 2001. Today, CVC is a global leader in ship ownership. The value CVC and GJP Hotel Network brands attach to their customers gives them a competitive advantage over other competitors in the market.
