JHSF CEO Named Influential Fashion Icon

José AuriemoNeto may not be the first person that comes to mind when you think of Brazil’s fashion world; after all, he’s not a clothing designer and doesn’t work directly in the fashion world. He has, however, helped bring a variety of top international brands to Brazil. These include the likes of René Caovilla, BrunelloCuccinelli, Hermés, Valentino, Jimmy Choo and Pucci. José Neto has worked in the real estate world for decades and has quickly become one of the market leaders in the industry. Mr. Neto founded JHSF in São Paulo, Brazil in 1972 alongside his brother Fábio and two other partners. Throughout the company’s history, the brothers firmly established the foundation for their success and grew on an almost constant basis.

In 1990 the company was split in two with both brothers taking a half. JoséNeto took JHSF Participações and focused on the real estate market operations in Brazil. However, Mr. Neto then realized that it would be a profitable business decision to look into more commercial real estate. Because of that, JHSF began investing in the shopping center segment; this ended up being massively successful. One of the most notable investments the company made during this time is the Shopping Metrô Santa Cruz in São Paulo, Brazil. The shopping center was the first mall in the country to feature a subway station. This ended up being sold in 2010 to BR Malls for quite a significant sum.

In 2014, José Neto led the company into the luxury commercial outlet market with the development of the Catarina Fashion Outlet. The luxury retail premises brought in a significant amount of internationally renowned brands, such as Jimmy Choo and others; these brands either only had a minimal presence in the country or none at all. Because of that, the Catarina Fashion Outlet was the first step in putting Brazil on the fashion map.It’s also one of the few notable decisions that helped José Neto become somewhat of an icon in the fashion world. This led him to become one of the 500 most influential fashionistas according to Business of Fashion.

Tidal Bore Capital CIO Sandy Chin Excited About The Future Of New Summer Reading Program

Sandy Chin is The Chief Investment Officer at Tidal Bore Capital. Chin has over 20 years of experience in the financial sector. Chin has developed a reputation for being able to complete tasks in a timely manner.

Recently, Sandy Chin noticed that something needed to be done at PS11, a public elementary school in New York City. Many of the students there needed books to read over the summer, which put a financial strain on those families. PS11 serves students who live in low income housing projects, so Sandy Chin offered to help those in need.

Many children experience a decrease in their reading skills over the summer because they are performing other activities. Some children may not read at all during their summer vacation because they do not have access to books. As a result, many children forget some of the lessons they’ve learned by the time that the next school year starts. While Chin’s son attends PS11, she makes sure that her son has access to a large supply of books.

To help children stay engaged during the summer, many libraries have organized summer reading programs. However, many kids don’t have the opportunity to go to the library. Research has shown that many children become attached to books, holding them in the same regard as their favorite toys. Chin fell in love with reading books at an early age.

To help children possibly find that love for books that she has, Chin decided to hold a summer book drive at PS11. The goal was to collect used books that could be given away to the students at PS11. This would allow all of the kindergarten children to take home books during their summer vacation.

The event, titled Books, Boxes, & Bodies, was a success. Chin notes that more books were donated than she expected. There were more than three thousand books donated over the course of the week. The extra books made it possible for children in each grade level to take home multiple books to read during their summer vacation.https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=262047475&privcapId=328177958&previousCapId=328177958&previousTitle=Tidal%20Bore%20Capital
