José Auriemo Neto is the CEO of JHSF Participacoes SA, where he also serves as the chairman of the board. The real estate company is involved in the construction of residential and commercial properties in Brazil, but it has been expanding its areas of operations over the years. The company is currently building residential houses for rent in New York. This prompted Neto and his family to move to the USA as he oversees the completion of this project.
José Auriemo Neto and his firm have in the past overseen the construction of iconic buildings and public spaces. His firm has so far invested heavily in a shopping and retail portfolio which includes the iconic Cidade Jardim shopping complex in Säo Paulo, Ponta Negra shopping centre in Manaus, Metrô Tucuruv, and the Bela Vista in Salvador. Under Neto’s leadership, JHSF Participacoes SA has also ventured out in projects involving world-renowned luxury brands such as Jimmy Choo, Hermes, Pucci, and Valentino. Through collaboration with JHSF Participacoes SA, all these luxury brands launched their operations in Brazil by opening their first physical stores in malls such as the Cidade Jadrim shopping complex and other shopping malls built by the company.
