Sitting pretty at the top: The Evolution of JHSF Real Estate and José Neto

When you speak of the high end commercial and residential real estate sector in Brazil, the name JHSF group is always never far away from mention. He has earned the reputation of being the best in the niche.

From residential and commercial markets acquisition, development and management of shopping malls, upscale hotels to an international executive airport, JHSF has cemented its mark all over Brazil as the most prominent real estate development company.

Started in1972, JHSF boasts of massive experience of not only creating spectacular work but also in its capacity to identify new modern opportunities through innovation, quality and to provide sustainable solutions in all the developments where they are involved.

The company has invested heavily in office buildings, hotel, public, retail, and shopping. Some of the iconic projects include the great Cidade Jardim shopping complex in Säo Paulo, the MetrôTucuruv, the Bela Vista in Salvador and the Ponta Negra shopping center in Manaus. Many other buildings are on the way to suit an ever-growing and ever-changing market.

Across its 42 years of spectacular growth, JHSF now has offices in São Paulo, Salvador, Manaus in Brazil as well as in international markets in Punta del Este in Uruguay and Miami and New York cities in the United States of America.

One would tend to wonder how one company has become the cream-de la- cream of this sector, not only in its parent home. Without a doubt, the ability to efficiently deliver and satisfy markets through its division into four business units makes them stand out. They include; the Shopping Centre, Incorporations, Fasano Hotel & Restaurants and Executive Airport.

At the helm of the JHSF is JoséAuriemoNeto, the chairman and CEO. AuriemoNeto is an expert in his field having joined JHSF Par in 1993. He immediately founded the services management department that created the parking lot management company Parkbem in 1997. He has served as the Chief Executive Officer of JHSF Par since 2003.

In 1998, Mr. Neto initiated the shopping center department. He obtained the necessary rights to develop, implement and manage the Shopping Santa Cruz that has been one of the most outstanding malls in Brazil. AuriemoNeto’s educational background is in engineering and business administration.

As he shapes the future of the Company, Mr. Neto has redirected the focus of JHSF to the recurring income space. It is already paying off with increased company revenues. JHSF has therefore given more precedence to projects such as shopping malls, high-standard hotels, and Urban Developments. The Catarina Executive Airport and Catarina Fashion Outlet are the first developments under the Catarina Integrated Urban Development.

Additionally, Mr. Neto has moved to New York with his family at the JHSF apartments and hotel. The apartments are not for sale but rather rental to create recurring income. The thinking behind this is that apartments should not be for sale but rather only available on a need-to-rent basis.
