The real estate industry in the country of Brazil has quickly grown into one of the best investment opportunities in that area, and one of the most prominent property development companies there is JHSF Participacoes SA, which is based in Sao Paulo and is led by Jose AuriemoNeto, who has served as its Chairman and CEO since 2003. JHSF is known for having invested in a number of real estate development ventures, such as shopping centers, retail stores, hotels and residential buildings. The company operates in several areas of Brazil, as well as internationally in countries like the U.S., where it was responsible for completing a project involving a property on Fifth Avenue in New York, and in Uruguay, where it was a builder of a condominium called Las Piedras, which is located in the city of Punta del Este.
Under Jose AuriemoNeto’s direction, JHSF acquired partnerships with the luxury brands Hermes and Jimmy Choo, which are featured in the retail store at the shopping center the company opened up called CidadeJadrim. Another luxury brand the company formed a business partnership with is Valentino, and because of this deal, JHSF opened up the first Valentino stores in Brazil. Although Jose AuriemoNeto is the current president of JHSF, he began working at the company in 1993, and a few years later, in 1997, he started a parking lot management business through the company’s services department called Parkbem.
Jose AuriemoNeto obtained his education at Fundacao Armando AlvaresPenteado University, where he took courses in Engineering and Business Administration. Family members, Fabio and Jose Roberto Auriemo, along with two other partners founded JHSF, which they had initially named JHS, in 1972. By the year 1990, they split JHS into two companies, one being the real estate venture JHSF, which is now worth over $3 billion.
