Fábio Auriemo and José Roberto are two Brazilians who were passionate enough to partner and found one of Brazil’s most successful construction and development networks. They founded JHS in 1972 as a construction company and propelled it to profitability and good repute through their skill and commitment. However, sibling rivalry and visionary differences had always strained the relationship between the two who ultimately differed on the direction of the company. The family business got split into two companies, JHSF and JHSJ. JHSF, Fabio’s, became a development while José Roberto’s JHSJ remained in the construction business.
Fábio Auriemo grew his JHSF into a gigantic real estate company which owns vast properties in Brazil as well as in other countries like the United States. The growth of the company has always been attributed to Fabio’s ability and commitment to superseding all of his clients’ expectations. The track record of satisfied customers has been what JHS has relied on to ascend into wealth and prosperity from return businesses and referrals.
Although Fabio has always been very busy growing JHSF, he has never been too busy to relate with his family and teach the trade to them. Fabio put his eldest son in charge of all of the JHSF shopping mall when the boy was only 17 years old. Surprisingly, José Auriemo Neto performed, in that capacity, more than his father expected.
José Auriemo Neto earned his father’s respect years later. He had conducted an independent review of a lot at the edge of Marginal Pinheiros. The lot was priced lowly at the time, and not even the attentive Fabio had appreciated it for its true potential. After his son laying emphasis and insistence, Fabio agreed to view the property and purchase it. His son had suggested they build a high-end complex there and so they did. The project, named Parque Cidade Jardim after completion, became the company’s most profitable business yet. It also became the company’s most valuable asset just as easily as it had landed the company a slot on the short list of most domineering high-end real estate property and service providers in the region.
