Guilherme Paulus Wants To Have 2000 CVC Stores By 2020

Starting out as an IBM intern, Guilherme Paulus is currently one of Brazil’s most influential businessmen. He co-founded CVC Brasil Opradora in 1972, at the age of 24 years old, and through his dedication managed to turn his tourism company into the largest operator in Latin America. In 2017, CVC transported 6 million tourists.

Guilherme Paulus started CVC alongside an investor, but 4 years into the business he was the sole owner. When talking about his vision that helped grow his business, he notes that he did not focus on just one market. While International tourism is strong, he valued domestic tourism. A key factor was when they started chartering flights in the 80s and 90s. Back then international tourism was also strong, but since there was no national operator that was investing in domestic tourism, CVC entered the scene.

In 2009, Guilherme Paulus sold a portion of CVC to Carlyle Group. The company’s annual revenues are at $5.2 billion and are continuing to rise at a fast pace every year. CVC has a big presence in Brazil, in a large number of malls and Guilherme Paulus plans on opening stores in areas that are less populated, with a population of up to 50,000 inhabitants, in order to attract new clients. His plan is to establish 100 stores every year, and by 2020 to have 2000 stores throughout the country.

He notes that in the last decade the biggest change was online presence. Online is seen as a support for offline, whether for research or to close sales. He collaborates with Omni Channel in order to integrate online vendors into physical stores.

Besides owning the largest tourism operator in Brazil, Guilherme Paulus is also the owner of GJP Hotels and Resorts, which operates more than 20 hotels and resorts in places such as Sao Paulo, Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, and others. What became as a small business venture in 2005 turned into a large hotel chain in Brazil. Since opening the first hotel, his properties had more than 95,000 people pass through the door, and currently have 5,000 people employed.

Citizens United Wants You To Feel Empowered This Election Season

It’s easy to feel despair when it comes to our political process. After all, Donald Trump somehow won the presidency while 3 million fewer people voted for him than for Hillary Clinton. It seems like it’s all rigged and that the wealthy are simply the political class in our country. Read more about the group on Wikipedia.

But End Citizens United wants you to feel empowered. The political action committee is working hard to restore your power as an individual voter. This organization of dedicated professionals has been implementing a multi-layered plan to give control of the government back to the people.

End Citizens United was formed a few years after the Supreme Court decided the Citizens United case in 2008. The prevailing decision, written by five conservative Supreme Court justices, was one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever read. It essentially states that corporations are living, breathing individual people, and, of course, people have constitutional protections.

What does this mean, exactly? It means that giant corporations with incredible sums of money can toss rivers of cash at election cycles through PAC’s. This spending of money is seen by the Supreme Court as an expression of speech protected by the First Amendment. That’s right, your Supreme Court believes that corporations are people with the ability to express themselves. Learn more about the group on Crunchbase.

End Citizens United was put together in order to end Citizens United. The grassroots organization is putting its fundraising potential behind Democratic candidates that are also committed to ending Citizens United. The organization is full of lawyers that are able to police elections across the country. They’ve already filed a lawsuit against Rick Scott in his bid for Senate in the state of Florida. End Citizens United alleges that he is coordinating with his Super PAC and has received over $3 million from executives he’s done favors for as governor.

You can help this organization and its fight to restore your voting power. You can help them change campaign finance laws in your state and local governments, and you can donate as an individual to one of the many candidates that the group is endorsing across the country in 2018.
