JHSF is the first real estate company in Brazil to focus on projects with recurring expenditure, and as a result, it is the most successful and profitable real estate company in the country. The company was established in 1972 by Fabio Auriemo. He ventured into property development with the aim of making Brazil a leading real estate market in the region. It was initially known as JHS and was under the management of Fabio and his brother Jose. They, however, differed on the direction the company would take, leading to a split. Fabio created JHSF to deal with property development. JHSF succeed in its path of business, and it is now the biggest real estate development company in Brazil.
In 1992, Jose Auriemo Neto, commonly known as Zeco Auriemo, joined JHSF. He is the son of Fabio, the founder of the company. At the age of 17, Zeco was ready to learn from his father. Zeco Auriemo managed some of the projects the company was involved in as a way of learning from practical experience. Zeco is a name that he received due to his generosity and love for the community.
Zeco Auriemo later took over the business from his father. He is now the chairman and CEO of JHSF. Under his leadership, this company has recorded the biggest gains in its history.
