JHSF Participacoes S.A is the leading Brazilian high-end real estate business today. It has concentrations in both homes, shopping centers, hotels, and airports. It first opened its doors for business in 1972. It was founded by two brothers. The brothers eventually divided the company into two with each of them taking the leadership of one. One of the brothers, Fabio Auriemo, was in control of the company that was still called JHSF. In 2007, Jose Auriemo began helping his father to enter the shopping center sector of real estate.
It took a while for Jose to persuade his father that this was indeed the best move for the company. He pointed out that throughout the 80s and 90 very few new luxury shopping centers had started in Brazil and that therefore there was a great demand for such. One of their first projects to this end was the construction of a luxury mall. The vast mall that resulted even had apartment sections and office space. It also had a number of spacious open-air areas.
Upon his father’s retirement, Jose eventually assumed the CEO position. Today it has a decided presence in Sao Paulo, Salvador, Manaus, Punta del Este in Uruguay, and Miami and New York in the USA. Jose’s retail vision for the company not only benefited the company but has astronomically benefited the Brazilian economy as well. He and his wife and children recently temporarily moved to New York so that he could more closely follow and supervise the construction of a new high-rise apartment.
