He co-founded the CVC with Carlos Vicente Cerchiari, a politician he met during a trip. Carlos Vicente Cerchiari soon left the business venture after four years.

The company now generates an annual revenue of $5.2 billion.

The next of his famous business ventures was the founding of the GJP Hotels and Resorts in 2005. The GJP Hotels and Resorts is now in control of 19 hotels that are placed all around the country of Brazil. There are 7 hotels in the Southern Region of Brazil, 5 hotels in the Southeast Region, and 7 hotels in the Northeast Region of the country.

For Guilherme Paulus, the necessities were good beds, good showers, good free internet and good service.
