JHSF is one of the leading developers inBrazil they have been able to grow from a small local and family-owned business into a multinational brand that is now doing business the world over.The idea of setting up the company was first conceived by two brothers Fabio and Jose Roberto Auriemo who had seen the potential real estate held in the country and in 1972 they brought together the little finances each could contribute and registered the company.The company initially began as a general contractor offering services such as construction and repairs of commercial and residential houses.As they grew there portfolio through the exemplary work that they were doing, they were able to go into development of there own houses.
Initially, this was a challenge as financing a whole project is quite an expensive affair but through sheer hard work, they were able to achieve the success they had always dreamed of.
JHSF began its foray into big projects when it conceived the idea of building a mall in Brazil this had to be more than just a mall, but it had to have underlying uniques that would make it stand out from the rest.They came up with the Metro Santa Cruz Mall in Sao Paulo this was the first mall in Brazil to be conjoined with a subway station.Immediately it was opened it proved to be a major hit with clients due to the convenience it offered for them. This was a project that put JHSF on the map, and from there they could only go up.It is no surprise that now JHSF is involved in building of private airports some of the biggest development projects in Brazil.
JHSF has also benefitted from stable leadership beginning from its founders who had a clear vision for the company then when leadership was handed over to the young José Auriemo Neto; this proved to be a masterstroke.
José Auriemo Neto was always ambitious and since his early days had worked for the company.His first significant engagement was the development of a parking lot management system for Parkbem. This was no mean task as his tender age. He would continue to be fully engaged with the company until he was appointed CEO and chairman of the company.
