The founding of GJP coincided with announcements of the potential mega sports events expected in the country. The FIFA world cup was coming to Brazil and would be followed by the summer Olympics two years later. To Guilherme Paulus this were investment opportunities and he embarked on getting the required approvals to build hotels near the country’s key airports that would be the major entry points for those visiting Brazil. These approvals were granted and the process of building hotels begun.
In 2007 Guilherme Paulus would be approached by a private equity firm who had an interest in acquiring a 63.6 percent stake at CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. with the vision of growing it to greater heights while having a controlling stake in it. The deal would cost the equity firm 420 million dollars, which would help Guilherme Paulus grow GJP. His focus at this time turned to GJP which was a young company and would require the same hand holding that was given to CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. in it’s formative years. This level of attention to details has seen GJP as achieve success almost similar to CVC and hopefully will surpass it in the near future. Brazilian businessman continues to remain committed to nurturing more entrepreneurs and help them attain success similar to his.
