Guilherme Paulus is currently a billionaire in the Forbes List of the wealthiest men in the world. The man who booms in the tourism sector co-founded a leading tourism agency called CVC Brasil when he met Vicente Cerchiari in 1972 when he was 24 years old. Vicente left the company about four years later. With the guidance of Guilherme Paulus, CVC Brasil has been in a position to provide more than 10,000 clients with high-end travel packages coupled with affordable prices.

When he met Vicente, a leading government official, Paulus didn’t have the capital to establish a tour and travel agency. Their conversation coincided since they aspired to invest in the tourism industry. Since he was a committed student at that moment, Paulus learned more about the industry before joining the sales and marketing department. He would later show some interest in starting an agency that has since assisted clients to travel to their destination through various touring packages.

At the same time, Guilherme Paulus chose a strategic location for the agency. He realized that many Brazilians lacked the opportunity to book their air tickets at their convenience. Therefore, he intended to build the business in order to provide such clients with the chance to travel by convenient transportation systems while developing the country. Throughout his career, Paulus has recognized that it’s vital to give back to the less fortunate who need emotional and financial support. For instance, he is a contributor to the PIET foundation that caters to young generations who aspire to join the tourism sector. His interest is providing extensive care for poor teenagers by channeling funds toward medical care, educational classes as well as psychological counseling.

Guilherme Paulus has received outstanding recognition from different states and governments including France. He is admired for creating many employment opportunities to the youth as well as the established entrepreneurs who would like to be in the business. In 2017, he received Entrepreneur of The Year Award following his contribution to developing the tour industry. Until now, Guilherme Paulus has established a strong reputation as the head cheerleader of the sector.
