Guilherme Paulus is the co-founder of CVC Brasil Operadora and founder and chairman of GJP Hotels and Resorts. A renowned chain of resorts and hotels that employs over 5,000 workers and has welcomed over 95,000 guests since its start in 1995. Twenty-four successful years later, the chain of resorts and hotels currently operates over 20 hotels and resorts in Brazil.
An avid student of business, Guilherme Paulus started career as an intern at IBM. But, while working at IBM was a dream come true, he had an incredible entrepreneurial drive and ambition to serve community members. Plus he always had a vision of tourism in Brazil. So when Carlos Vicente pitched him the idea of bringing tourism to Brazil, he was immediately sold on the idea. But since he was only 24 years old at the time, he didn’t have any money to invest in the venture. So Vicente offered to invest with the understanding that Guilherme Paulus would be on top of the day to day operations.
The two opened their first store in Sao Paulo in 1972 and continued their partnership for four years before Carlos Vicente departed from operations. And while having one store was no doubt magnificent, the sky was the limit for Guilherme Paulus.
So he continued to open even more stores in Brazil. In 2009, Guilherme had the idea of taking the company public and sold 63% of the company’s shares to make that dream a reality. And in 2013, CVC started to trade as a public company. Thus raising more capital for growth. Right now, CVC has about 1,200 storefronts around the world and more than 3,000 dedicated employees who work towards CVC’s vision.
But it’s not all business with Guilherme. He also values social accountability and has an undying drive to serve the community. As a result, his company has participated in various noble causes. These include donating funds for medical care and educational classes. Also, CVC provides educational opportunities for disadvantaged children. And especially those who would want to work in the tourism industry in the future.
In recent years, the world of investment has experienced rapid growth in terms of items that people can invest in and the number of people who want to invest. Unlike before, when investors where either the older generation, large organizations and individuals or families with large pockets, the today’s investor is anyone. With as little or as much as one can, Investments are being made left, right and center. This has expanded to the investment market capacity making it harder and harder for the investor to get a good item they can invest in. The increase in the number of investors has created the need for investment advisors to bridge between the two. Investment advisors like Matt Badiali, who are able to direct average investors to items that will help them get their returns and when possible more than three times the investment.
Matt Badiali is an experienced writer and investment /financial adviser. He graduated from the Penn State University with a bachelor’s in earth science, after which he pursued a masters degree which he majored in Geology. It was during his pursuit of a Ph.D. that he met a friend who would change his path and life forever. His friend, a Ph.D. holder in the financial industry, advices him on his potential if he joined the financial industry as an adviser. Having knowledge in geology would help Matt Badiali explain and advice on the science behind the natural resources investment industry. After embracing his new found path, Matt Badiali has been able to advise investors on what is the next best thing to invest in the market.
Natural resources, in most countries, are usually under the strict eye of the government, with it also being the main investor and the overall manager of them. This has therefore made it difficult for investors to get enough information to help them invest in such resources and actually get returns. Matt has created the platform that is much needed by investors through writing on different resources and how they are lucrative even for small investors. Through his articles on energy, natural resources, and metals, many of his readers have gained twice or triple their investments.
As one of the largest meat processing companies in the world, OSI Industries employs 20,000 people. That means providing jobs for folks in more than 17 countries — but it also means creating a workspace where multiple ethnicities, races, ages, genders and nationalities all come together to work on a common goal and a shared mission.
OSI Industries is an organization that has never taken workplace diversity for granted. In fact, this company is deeply committed to creating jobs for people from all walks of life — and bringing them together in an environment where all are treated with dignity, respect and equality.
OSI Industries is extremely proud of the deep level of diversity it has achieved among its 20,000 employees. For example, in OSI’s European and American (North and South) facilities, 40% are women. In the Asia-Pacific zone, 40% of those holding management positions are also women.
Age discrimination is also something OSI officials have looked at and taken proactive measures to ensure nondiscriminatory policies. Consider that 32% of all employees in the Americas are age 50 to 65.
OSI Industries is also proud of the fact that its employees have developed a deep sense of loyalty and belonging as they work for a company that strives to treat everyone like family. That’s probably why almost a quarter of all OSI employees have worked for the company in excess of five to 10 years. That’s one of the highest employee retention figures among large, international corporations.
OSI employees are also encouraged by company policy to become active in their local communities. That means getting involved in charity drives or programs — but also taking the initiative to start their own projects. An example is OSI’s major partnership with Feeding America, the premier organization in the United States which provides for food banks that feed families experiencing food insecurity. OSI employees contribute hundreds of thousands of pound of food per year to Feeding America outlets across the nation.

However this is just one of the many positions Mr. Seacrest has held through the years. He hosted American Idol from 2002 to 2016 and even signed on to host their reboot.

JHSF has graced Brazil with its real estate brilliance in these recent years. It, however, would have had a substantially harder time impressing everyone so much without the guidance of Jose Auriemo Neto. This man is leading JHSF’s charge in his prized CEO position, and he made the progressive business decisions to build luxury residential properties, retail properties and even an exclusive airport. Auriemo is proving to be extremely adept at finding the best opportunities for his business to exponentially grow and move further forwards.
Brazil first saw JHSF come into the market in 1972, and Mr. Auriemo’s father made the bold decision to found it. It has been very lucrative for the company to now operate with the vision of Jose Auriemo Neto as its sole compass. JHSF has also been known to contribute significantly to a few important causes, and one of the strongest ones it has donated to is the area of sustainability.
There are many things that Brazil is thankful for regarding the projects of JHSF, but there are actually a number of newer markets that it has been operating in recently, and these are much-coveted international markets. There are successful JHSF projects located in parts of Uruguay, New York and Florida. Jose Auriemo Neto is lucky, clearly, to have such a wonderful team of leadership with whom he can work in order to bring his thoughts of JHSF’s future into the physical reality.
Jose Auriemo Neto has gained Brazilian real estate respect for all that he has done with JHSF, and that is something that is extremely well-earned for this talented chief executive officer. Developing new, and usually luxurious, properties is what he is best at, and there are hotels, malls, offices and academic projects that have been heavily influenced by him and this entity.
FAAP University gave to him an education that thoroughly prepared to lead JHSF. Jose Auriemo Neto is on pace to become even more successful with Jimmy Choo, Pucci and Hermes all agreeing to form partnerships with him and the powerful organization with regards to JHSF’s retail endeavors.
Betsy DeVos is no stranger to being in the public eye, or “in the ring” when it comes to politics. Admirers and critics of DeVos alike both characterize her as a polite and cordial politician, who can truly break out the big guns when it comes to the ideals that she believes in.
Ms. DeVos grew up in western Michigan, and even spent time in her youth working for her father, Edgar Prince, at his company supplying auto parts. Prince, too, was a fighter. Like Betsy, Edgar was a devout backer of causes both conservative and Christian at home; at work, he built his company into a billion-dollar business. Her brother Erik’s company also represented conservative values as an overseas contractor for personnel from the United States. Betsy’s husband, Dick, came from a wealthy family, shares conservative values, and is similarly a political fighter with a hand in many businesses.
Mr. and Mrs. DeVos each were educated in private schools, as were their children; because of this, opponents tend to believe that they have a bit of a disconnect with the average American family. Supporters of her plan to redirect tax dollars from public schools toward charter or private schools will cite that this move actually gives more choices to lower-income families; further, it creates a sense of competition that will encourage improvement for all schools in the long run. Due to the effort of Betsy DeVos, along with husband Dick, the largest concentration of charter schools is in the city of Detroit, where the couple has put in great effort in the education system with their philanthropy.
Ms. Devos has been known over the years as not only an advocate of charter schools, but also as an advocate for school vouchers and a major donor to the Republican party. Those who know her in a political light warn against the belief that she will be meek, or will be focused on seeking approval as a team player. While she puts on a sweet and gracious face publicly, there are politicians who know her better than that. They describe her as effective and relentless. She is reputable as resourceful; especially because, in her case, she has great resources to work with.
The effectiveness of Betsy DeVos is proven greatly in her home state. Those who know her, and have seen her in action, are well aware that her resources and family wealth are vastly overshadowed by her hard work and determination.
Wes Edens Interest In Sports Has Gone International
Wes Edens is CEO and co-founder of the Fortress Investment Group. He began his successful journey in the finance industry by receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Business Administration at Oregon State University. However, finance is not Wes Edens only love. He is also a big sports fan.
In 2014, he and his partner purchased the Milwaukee Bucks from previous owner Herb Kohl. Kohl sold the Bucks for 555 million dollars with the understanding that he would build a new arena for the team. Edens also promised to keep the team in Wisconsin.
After having much success with owning a basketball team, he has gone international. Wes Edens, along with billionaire Nassef Sawiris, recently purchased a majority stake in the Aston Villa Football Club. Sawiris and Edens, however, are new to the soccer experience. To help guide them on this new journey, the previous owner, Tony Xia, a Chinese business, will stay on as co-chairman of the board. Xia is excited to have both Sawiris and Edens on board and hopes this investment will significantly help the club.
The club itself is considered to be an upcoming team despite the fact that they once a popular club in the Premier League. However, the club over the last several years has fallen on a bit of bad luck. In 2016, they were kicked out of the Premier League to the second tier due to too poor performance. The Villa Club had also started to have financial difficulties due to lack of interest in their team.
The team has begun to restructure and narrowly lost out on the bid for the big leagues this past May. However, with the new investment from Edens and Sawiris, the club is not giving up. After all the Premier League is always interested in teams that come with money and with Edens and Sawiris backing them, they should be playing for the league soon.
