CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A has grown to become one of the biggest tour operators in Brazil and Latin America in general. The company that was founded in 1972 by a twenty-four-year-old has undergone some of the most radical transformations in the country and today commands the largest share of Brazils tourist travels.
When Guilherme Paulus started CVC Brasil, he may never have seen this level of success coming and him growing to become a billionaire. Today Guilherme Paulus has become one of the most respected voices in the Brazilian tourism sector in part due to these investments, but also due to his knowledge and understanding of the dynamics that affect tourism in Brazil. The investments made by CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A have seen it have a presence in more than four hundred fifty cities in Brazil and serves an average of three and a half million passengers every year.
One of the reasons CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A is able to maintain these numbers based on the fact that its chairman Guilherme Paulus has always insisted on constant innovation. This is driven by a belief that lack of innovation creates boredom and clients soon get exhausted from having to experience the same service over and over.
Guilherme Paulus was among the first people to bring a cruise ship into Brazil. This would count as one of the biggest achievements for CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. After the successful completion of this trip, the news spread like wildfire and soon clients were calling to book similar cruises with them. This would mark a turning point not only for CVC but also the Brazilian tourism industry.
Over the years Guilherme Paulus would lead the company into rapid growth, and soon enough he was able to attract interest from other potential investors. Banks were willing to loan him money to support growth while others were willing to underwrite the company’s initial public offering the minute it decided to list on the stock exchange. However, before CVC could go, public Carlyle group, acquired a controlling stake in 2009.
