Guilherme Paulus has worn many hats in order to achieve the worldwide entrepreneurial status he has earned. As a young man he worked diligently to become co-founder of the largest Brazilian travel agency, CVC, even without the financial ability to contribute to start-up capital. He used the knowledge and work ethic that he developed at that agency with co-founder Carlos Vicente Cerchiari to go on to establish other companies and earn a spot on Forbes coveted list of billionaires. Although Cerchiari and Paulus parted ways in business after just four years, CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencias de Viagen has gone on to become Latin America’s largest tour operator.
In 2005 Guilherme Paulus founded GJP Hotels and Resorts. Featuring over 20 hotels and resorts in such locations as Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Gramado, and more. The company is segmented into three distinct brands to accommodate travelers: Linx which offers budget-friendly options, Prodigy which was established to combine luxury with value, and Wish for the higher-end luxury traveler. Each of the GJP hotels feature carefully selected locations, meticulous accommodations, and exceptional personal service while catering to the specific needs of those traveling within each specified category.
