If you pay attention to the headlines about the state of physical retail industry in the United States you will probably not be surprised that traditional retail is taking a bit of a hit in the United States. When the internet became available to American consumers they were quick to change their habits with regard to their consumption of media and the way that they obtained goods and services that they needed. This quick internet adoption by consumers has put a strain on a number of industries. Brick and mortar book stores for instance have seen their sales fall and have felt the need to shutter their doors as the internet slowly ate up their market share. Retail companies like the bookstore Borders are now a memory instead of the thriving retail businesses they once were. Retailers that sell clothing to consumers that are located in the United States are also finding that their sales are falling and that maintaining physical stores is a feat that is becoming harder and harder to accomplish with each passing quarter of the fiscal year. However while retailers that are focused on US consumers might be experiencing difficulty companies that pin their hopes on Brazil’s retail market might have more success. In Brazil retail executives like José Auriemo Neto are leading companies to success while other retail markets around the world flounder.
José Auriemo Neto is the chief executive officer of a Brazilian company that is known as JHSF JHSF Participacoes SA. The company that Jose leads works in the retail industry in an indirect way in that his company manages real estate properties including the commercial real estate properties that major retailers rent in order to reach consumers in the Brazilian marketplace. Jose is responsible for overseeing various kinds of real estate including commercial real estate in some of the most upscale shopping centers in Brazil including Sao Paolo’s Cidade Jardim, Ponta Negra and Bela Vista. Jose has been responsible for closing some important real estate deals with major retailers that include high end brands such as Valentino, Jimmy Choo and Pucci.
