Jose Auriemo Neto (known as Zeco by his friends) became the president of the family-owned JHSF when still under 30. He had a long history before that, having worked for the company since a teenager. After graduating high school when only 17, he studies engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of Sao Paulo. However, during these years he decided to pursue a career at JHSF instead. He was a leader in the company by the time it started concentrating on incorporation in the 90s. During the early 2000s Ariemo began leading JHSF into retail and then into luxury shopping malls. Auriemo later assumed the position of CEO upon his father’s retirement, see also (Istoedinheiro.com).
