His Contribution at JHSF
Jose Auriemo Neto’s skills in growing business manifested early in his life. He had founded a business at just 17 that was a network of parking lots named Parkbem. The venture opened up JHSF that was then run by his father Fabio Auriemo to the services sector. Since then, he has not relented in taking up opportunities that he believed could take the company further. He can visualize an idea before executing his plan; a trait that showcased when he convinced his father to develop a land he had spotted in the Marginal Pinheiros. Though he was hesitant at the beginning, his father took up the offer which birthed the largest shopping mall in Brazil, Cidade Jadrim Shopping Complex. This move introduced JHSF to the retail business.
José Auriemo Neto has over the years been instrumental to the growth at JHSF. He has led the firm to enter into strategic partnerships that have taken it to the top. Such partnerships include with Hermes as well as Pucci and Jimmy Choo. Five years ago, he brought Valentino on board after signing a partnership. The coalition saw the birth of the R.E.D Valentino stores. His efforts are also credited for the development of other shopping malls by the firm including Shopping Santa Cruz among others.
