Jose Auriemo Neto is the chief executive officer of JHSF Participacoes, a Brazilian real estate, and property development firm. The founder of the company, Fabio Auriemo, appointed him to become the new leader of the company after he has shown leadership skills when he was under the Park Bem department. He was only 17 when he started to demonstrate his skills in becoming a leader. When he was 22 years old, he was given the position as the director of one of the company’s shopping malls. Jose Auriemo Neto is confident of his skills as a leader, and he accepted the responsibilities by the time he was appointed to become the company’s leader in 2003 when he was only 27 years old.
The JHSF Participacoes has a rich history. It was founded in 1972 by two brothers – Fabio Auriemo and Jose Auriemo. The company started as a small family-owned business, and they focused on the retail of construction materials. The company is selling these construction materials to contractors, and they are earning a decent profit out of it. However, when the construction boom started to be experienced in Brazil, Fabio Auriemo decided that they should enter the industry and become contractors themselves. Through the years, misunderstandings between the two brothers led to the crisis within the company, and JHSF Participacoes had to undergo a split in the 1990s. Fabio Auriemo continued to manage the real estate and property development division of the firm.
When Jose Auriemo Neto took over in 2003, the company has already entered the retail industry. However, in addition to the construction of malls, Jose Auriemo Neto also wanted to build luxury condominiums, and he started to expand the operations of the company. Overseas projects handled by the JHSF Participacoes started to appear in Uruguay and the United States, and in Brazil, the company continues to grip its influence to the public. Investors have also realized that the company will continue to grow, and its value of $312 million has a positive effect on those who own shares from the company. Jose Auriemo Neto demonstrated how effective he is in becoming the leader of the company.
