JHSF was originally founded in 1972 by the brothers Fabio Auriemo and Jose Roberto. It is currently the top dog in the high-end commercial and residential real estate scene. But this was not always the case. Eventually, because of a difference of vision, the company split with each brother taking the leadership of half. Fabio had three children, a son and two daughters. His son, Jose Neto, would one day play a very crucial role in the company’s success. In the 1990s its business kind of stalled.
It is more than just a regular, successful real estate company. It is recognized as a historic pioneer and visionary innovator in several previously unexplored areas. In fact, it is so important to today’s Brazilian economy that its existence is seen as imperative to its continuing stability. It has grown to encompass the whole world, with offices in Sao Paulo, Salvador, Manaus, Punta del Este, Miami, and New York. It has four primary departmental concerns: Shopping centers, incorporation, hotels and restaurants, and airports.
Much of its current success is thanks to Jose Neto. Neto actually opened his first business, a network of parking lots, when he was only 17. He inherited the top executive role from his father, Fabio Auriemo, in 2003 when he was just 27. But he quickly took the company out of the stagnancy of the 90s. He has successfully expanded the company and led the charge for its innovative spirit. Toward the end of last decade Neto also invested millions so that JHSF could join the Fasano hotel chain, a move that has been extremely lucrative for JHSF. Click here to know more.
But his expansive vision did not stop there. He had a clear vision of expanding in the area of malls, businesses, restaurants, and airports as well. He is still doing so not only in Brazil, but throughout the entire world. As much as he has accomplished, Neto is still relatively young at the age of 41. As young and as visionary as he is, there is little doubt that he has a lot more to accomplish in the years to come.
