Guilherme Paulus: A Tourism Industry Mogul in Brazil

Brazil has been experiencing a growing tourism industry. The numbers of tourists who have visited the country in 2017 have grown to more than six million people, higher than the figures released for the previous years. The reputation of Brazil as a tourism hub is an influence of its portrayals in Hollywood films, as well as its role in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Guilherme Paulus is a businessman who benefits from the recent influx of tourists in Brazil, and in 2018, he managed to reach the billion-dollar mark and became the newest billionaire in the country, as verified by the Forbes Magazine.

Guilherme Paulus built his business empire through the establishment of the CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. in 1972. When he was still starting in the tourism business, he does not have any idea how to run it, so he had to read a lot of books about starting a business in the tourism industry. He also looked for a business partner who would be willing to fund his business. A Brazilian politician volunteered to become the business partner of Guilherme Paulus, and together, they launched their tour operator business with a positive outlook into the company’s future.

Even since he was still a young man, Guilherme Paulus has always dreamed of becoming a successful businessman. He started working for IBM during his teenage years, serving as an intern. He learned a lot from this experience, and after he graduated from his school, he established the CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. He was only 24 years old when he started managing his business. Through the years, the company began to be known among the tourists, and by the 2000s, the CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. is known as the most extensive tour operator services provider in South America and Central America.

In 2009, a business conglomerate called the Carlyle Group offered Guilherme Paulus a proposal that he would never refuse. The conglomerate bought 63.6% of the company, or an amount equivalent to $420 million.
