Since his ascension to the helm of the real estate giant JHSF, Jose Auriemo Neto has been instrumental in leading the company to greater levels of success. Founded in 1972 by brothers Fabio and Jose Robert alongside two other partners, JHSF is one of the pioneering real estate companies in Brazil. It has created a reputation for itself by coming up with innovative and modern real estate solutions which have been much needed in the country. For instance, JHSF became the first company in Brazil to construct a green building in the year 2011. Since the environment-friendly luxurious residential building Vitra was constructed, no other real estate company in the country has been able to emulate the eco-friendly design that JHSF used to achieve this feat.
Having worked by his father’s side for many years, Jose Auriemo Neto took over as the company chairman and chief executive officer in 2003. He brought a new vision and direction for JHSF, helping steer it into a more diversified portfolio than before. He has led the company on a more diverse route, herding it into other lucrative industries such as the hospitality industry. They entered the hospitality industry in 2014 by launching their premiere hotel named Hotel Fasano. This was followed by a buying spree that saw them acquire many other hotels and restaurants across the country.
Further, Jose Auriemo Neto has guided the company into attaining global expansion. Currently, JHSF has operations in two other countries namely Uruguay and the United States. In the United States, JHSF has established operations in the highly competitive markets of New York and Miami. In Uruguay, they have established operations in Punta Del Estate. Mr. Neto has been instrumental in expanding the operations of JHSF beyond their Sao Paolo home in Brazil to other parts of the world, effectively turning it into a multinational enterprise. His visionary leadership and passionate management talent have helped grow the company beyond the expectation of its founders Fabio and Jose Robert.
