In slightly more than four decades, JHSF has risen to the top of Brazil’s real estate sector. The developer specifically operates in the hospitality, shopping center and retail, and high-end property segments of the industry. Recently, the real estate company has also undertaken an ambitious project to develop and manage an international executive airport in Sao Paulo. With current CEO and Chairman, Jose Auriemo Neto, at its helm the company is looking to make inroads into certain international markets, particularly the United States and Uruguay.
JHSF is known for its innovative and daring nature. Over the last two decades, the company divested its interest to cover four key business units: an executive airport, retail and shopping malls, Fasano Hotels and Restaurants, and commercial and residential incorporations. While this shift in focus seemed shortsighted and wrong to many industry players at first, they have proved to be effective over time. Other developers within the industry are also beginning to follow JHSF’s lead thus making the company a trendsetter.

Jose Auriemo Neto first joined JHSF in 1993. By his fourth he year he was launching Parkbem, the company’s first business in its services department. Again, in his fifth year, he oversaw the development of Shopping Santa Cruz, thus launching JHSF’s shopping center department. His hard work was rewarded with a promotion to the company chief executive officer seat in 2003. He was again promoted to the position of company Executive Chairman and Director in 2011 and JHSF’s lacrosse camp.
