JHSF Worldwide specializes in high income real estate. With operations in Brazil, the company was founded in 1972. Since that time, JHSF has become an industry leader in commercial and residential real estate acquisitions, this includes upscale hotels, luxury apartments and condos, international airports and retail shopping centers. A part of the company’s much larger mission is to maximize opportunities for super deluxe real estate buildings. To do this and excel at it, takes a unique strategy. For JHSF this strategy means offering the very latest innovations with an Eco-friendly aspect. Sustainable development isn’t just a side vision for the company, it has become an integral inclusion in every design project.
Because the requirements for shopping centers and malls have changed to match the times, building projects now adhere to higher standards. These standards drive more traffic to the new businesses, which leads to increased profits once the buildings are fully operational. The results have meant more revenue JHSF. This unprecedented revenue growth allowed the company to go public in 2007. Shares of JHSF are traded on the Brazil Stock Market (BOVESPA).
For Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, José AuriemoNeto the growth of JHSF comes as no surprise. Neither does the fact that the firm is called, “the king of luxury in São Paulo.” He’s known as “Zeco,” to his family. When Zeco spoke with his father, FábioAuriemo, who’s the Executive President and Key Developer of JHSF; about plans to build a “high-end” 80,000 square meter super complex. His father told him it wouldn’t work. José showed him how to convert the rear of the complex into the entrance. The completed building went on to become the “largest real estate complex in the country.”
And in 2009, his unique blend of direct talent and a propensity for finding retail land to develop helped to ink a deal with Jimmy Choo, Hermes and Pucci. For that project, JHSF ventured into unheard of territory for a luxury real estate developer. With José AuriemoNeto leading the way, JHSF opened the first developer owned luxury brand retail outlet, the CidadeJadrim shopping complex.
