Guilherme Paulus is part of an extremely small percentage of people that has attained the level of entrepreneurial success that would bring hope to many entrepreneurs that are still at the beginning stages of their journey for independence. Guilherme Paulus is a Brazilian native that joined the billionaires Forbes list in March of 2013. He had an internship with IBM for a short while when he was still under 20 years old before he realized that computing was not what he wanted. He still managed to benefit from the learning experiences while being a trainee for IBM. Visit Guilherme Paulus at Bloomberg to find out more.
Guilherme Paulus made the billionaire’s list because of the successes of Brazil’s tourism sector. Paulus was responsible for co-founding CVC, the travel agency in 1972. The CVC has become the largest touring operator due to Guilherme’s leadership. The company was founded by Paulus and a partner that was a politician at the time. The partner ended up leaving the venture after four years of being involved. The CVC is estimated to be priced at approximately 420 million.
Guilherme didn’t stop there. Even though his company has been having tremendous success, it didn’t completely scratch his entrepreneurial itch. Paulus went at it again and founded what’s known as GJP Hotels and Resorts. Gilherme’s new venture has control of more than 15 hotels and resorts in Brazil. The company is looking to build and maintain more hotels near Brazilian airports.
Paulus credits the success of the CVC and GJP to the consolidation and expansion of the two brands. He got his first taste of tourism because of an advertisement in the newspaper. This is where he got his first glimpse at the opportunities that awaited him in the traveling business. He realized that he could bring joy to people that were traveling after experiencing a boring trip with a group of French people. He set out to create activities that would be able to cheer up the customers. The trip ended up being a success and he felt more motivated to continue playing the same game. Guilherme Paulus is a dreamer and is encouraging to other dreamers.
Arpaio was not happy with the two. He ordered a Grand Jury to convene in secret for the purpose of finding a reason to imprison them. Ironically it was a story ran in the Phoenix New Times, owned through village Voice by the two, about the secret Grand Jury that was the reason Arpaio had them arrested. Larkin and Lacey found about the Grand Jury but didn’t know what its purpose was. They were arrested in October of 2007 on charges of interfering with the Grand Juries investigation by revealing it.
The nation was enraged by the imprisonment of two journalists simply for doing their job by an overbearing, unpopular and seemingly racist elected official. The two sued Maricopa County over the wrongful imprisonment and won, being awarded $3.7 million from County companies. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase
The two took this money and started the Frontera Fund in response to Arpaio’s negative effects on the state of Arizona. The Frontera Fund fights for the first amendment of citizens wrongfully denied this right by the government. They are focused primarily on Latino victims, as Latinos were the group most targeted and effected by Arpaio’s 24 years of policing.
Arpaio was brought up on charges and found guilt after he lost re-election for a seventh term as sheriff in 2016. President Trump pardoned him and he is now running for the Senate with Trump’s endorsement. Arpaio was one of the first public figures to endorse Trump during his presidential bid and many feel there are “favors for favors” happening between the two in plain sight.

Bruno Fagali has a law firm in Sao Paulo, Brazil, named Fagali Advocacy. He takes on cases that are involved in areas of the law like compliance, election law, advertising law, parliamentary law, and public law among other specialties. He earned his MSc in Administrative law from the University Of Sao Paulo Law School. In addition to managing his own law firm he also has worked for Nova/SB for the past few years as their corporate integrity manager. He was also the coordinator for the commission on “Ethics and Advertising Agencies” for the Brazilian Institute of Business Law and Ethics.
In recent years combatting corruption has been a big focus of the Brazilian federal government. They passed an Anticorruption Law which businesses have to be in compliance with. Bruno Fagali says that compliance is such an important issue in Brazil that most of that nation’s MBA programs are making teaching about it one of their focuses. He says that these types of courses can definitely help future business people learn about the challenges of compliance and why it is so critical of a thing for them to be addressing.
The reason for the focus on compliance is that corruption scandals have been erupting on a regular basis in Brazil over the past few years. Bruno Fagali says that one in-depth study, the Deloitte audit study, delved into efforts at companies to limit fraud and corruption. The study looked at 100 companies in different sectors of the economy, and of different sizes, to see how they were addressing anti-corruption measures. He says that this study shows that 73% of these companies are now putting place formal anti-corruption initiatives, something that only 59% of companies were doing the last time this study was conducted two years ago.
All this being said, Bruno Fagali says that the Deloitte study also shows that efforts in regards to anti-corruption still need to be beefed up at most businesses. He says that less than half of the companies looked at in this study have raised their efforts in this regard up into the good or optimal levels of risk management.
