The Brazilian real estate development company, JHSF is currently grabbing attention for pushing the boundary with its most recent projects. The company is currently in the process of developing an international executive airport to be located in Sao Paulo. The airport is the company’s most ambitious project yet and represents a growing trend of risk-taking and innovation adopted by JHSF since its current chief executive officer, Jose Auriemo Neto was appointed.
When first launched in 1972, JHSF’s sole business operation was developing commercial and residential housing projects. With time, however, the company expanded into the retail sector by developing and managing shopping malls. These malls are primary attractions in all the areas they are located in, and many hold the flagship stores of some international luxury brands. Later, it then expanded into the hospitality sector by acquiring the Fasano Group of Hotels and restaurants. In addition to the recent airport project, many in the industry have consistently predicted that these secondary business operations, at the times of their launching, cannot work. However, JHSF has been able to consistently grow and expand on the back of these diversified business units. With the real estate sector in the country experiencing a slowdown in the last two years, these unique business operations have allowed JHSF to remain profitable while its competitors in the real estate industry have faltered.
