José Auriemo Neto – The Face of Real Estate in Brazil

José Auriemo Neto is one of the most popular Brazilian businessmen. He has vast interests in the development of properties and is the current chairman of JHSF properties. He is also the chief executive of the company and has seen his company grow from scratch to the giant properties agent it is in the present day. His company has been in the forefront of building properties in several properties in Brazilian towns. His projects majorly include office blocks, new residential houses, shopping malls, and public developments as well.

Some of the most notable projects he has undertaken in the recent past include the Cidade Jardim shopping complex -San Paulo, Ponta Negra shopping center – Manaus, Bela Vista in Salvador, and Metrô Tucuruvi.

The group’s first venture was JHSF’s Cidade Jardim shopping complex. This was in 2009 when the company entered into an agreement with Pucci, Hermès and Jimmy Choo. This is perhaps one of the company’s most successful partnership agreement to date. The construction of JHSF’s Cidade Jardim shopping complex put José Auriemo Neto on the front lines of Brazilian real estate.

Later, José Auriemo Neto through his company also secured finances and was able to construct the Valentino and the Red Valentino shopping complexes. The group seems to have had increased appetite for investment in prime and luxurious properties. While the past two years have not been very successful for business in the real estate, José Auriemo Neto has remained steadfast in his quest for better business deals. All along the company has been posting yearly profits despite the hard economic times.

José Auriemo Neto went to the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) University based in San Paulo. He began working on his company in 1993 as soon he left campus. During his tenure, the company has also been able to introduce a parking lot management application known as Parkbem. This venture was a success and gave him a platform for building even bigger platforms. Other large projects that preceded Parkbem include the Santa Cruz- a luxury shopping mall in Santa Cruz.
