An Amibitious Couple's Blog Experiment

In Brazil, there is only one agency that is responsible for almost 60% of all the booking for traveling and for staying at hotels. And, in 2010, before the popularization of other ways of booking such as Trivago, it was responsible for 70%. This highly influential company is CVC, the go-to agency when Brazilians want to travel and get away from work.

CVC was founded in 1972 by Guilherme Paulus, who wanted to create an affordable solution for Brazilians to travel around the world and around their country. It was surprising how many Brazilians didn’t actually know their own land. Because of the extensive territory of Brazil and because there weren’t any comprehensive agencies that took care of everything, the population didn’t have the best ways to travel around by airplane and to book a room in a hotel beforehand. This is why CVC was game-changing.

Fast forward to a couple of years after its foundation, and CVC was already spreading across the country. Initially Guilherme Paulus inaugurated it in Santo André, São Paulo, but now CVC is creating their own establishments in shopping centers around the state, in cities such as São Bernardo do Campo, São Caetano, Campinas, and the list goes on. It also started to spread to cities located outside of São Paulo, such as Curitiba. Guilherme Paulus abrirá hotel de luxo com nova bandeira em SP.

Very soon, Guilherme Paulus’s traveling company was the solution to almost all of the Brazilians that wanted to move around the country or to other lands. It had packages and combos where the airplane tickets and the booking were all taken care of, effectively taking away all of the burdens of organizing a trip off customers’ shoulders.

Guilherme Paulus obviously had the golden idea, and CVC still holds the crown of the most sought national agency to this day, even after decades of being the number one in the industry. This shows the expertise and competence of the founder Guilherme Paulus, who graduated from business administration before creating his startup.

Now, in 2018, the company has more than 100 agencies spread across the country, and it is estimated that the firm profits, per year, around R$ 5,2 billion.

The 35 year history of CAOA in Brazil is amazing. With a little trip down memory lane, you will see why the group is one of the largest auto companies across the country and world.

The Beginning

It all started back in 1979. Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade is the founder of the automotive group. He started in the field as an automotive selector after gaining the Ford dealership in Landau. The re-seller had filed for bankruptcy and did not hesitate to offer him a great deal on the dealership. In this way, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade founded his company and quickly became the largest Ford company dealership in Brazil over the next six years.

Official Importer

In 1992, Brazil had started to allow the importation of vehicles. To use this to his advantage, Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade became the country’s official importer for the Renault brand. His company ended up making the Renault brand the top seller in the whole country in less than three years.

Here Comes Other Imports

Very soon after allowing imported vehicle brands, Brazil began allowing the import of Subura brand vehicles from Japan. Sales of these vehicles quickly escalated in less than one year.

Now On To Hyundai Brands

Later in the 1990s, Hyundai was allowed to be imported into the country as well. The brand, however, was unsuccessfully branded by other dealers in Brazil in the past. With the company owned by Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade, the brand became a huge success with the importation of the new Tucson model.

Now The Largest Dealer

Fast forward a few years to 2006. CAOA is now the largest automotive dealer of Ford in the Latin America. It is also the exclusive distributor and importer of the Hyundai and Subaru brands across the nation. The following year, the very first factory for Hyundai was built in Annapolis. This new factory ended up earning Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade a very important award in 2007.

The company works hard to make great choices for the environment. They like to reuse waste from the vehicle production facilities as a way to help with reforestation in the Midwest.

When women of substance are singled out, one notable name that will pop up is that of an American iron lady named Whitney Wolfe.

Matt Badiali has made significant contributions on various projects over the year. Recently, Matt Badiali made an announcement warning the public to prepare for high fuel prices. The announcement was made last month by the leading natural resource expert to help prepare fuel consumer for high fuel prices. Badiali predicted that fuel prices in the United stated would rise in fall. In his view, the decision to back out of the nuclear deal between the United States and Iran will have a tremendous effected on crude oil prices in America and its friends. In addition to backing out of the deal, the US president, Donald Trump also orders sanctions on Iran, which included stopping the importation of crude oil from the country. The imposed sanctions took effect in August.

For a long time, Iran has been a major player in crude oil distribution. Before the sanctions took effect, Iran was distributing 2.2 million barrels of oil each day. In his view by removing Iran from the equation, other key distributors will not be able to meet this demand. With the sanctions already taking effect, some countries have already started having fuel problems. Matt Badiali also believes that the current fuel condition in Venezuela will have some effect on US Crude Oil price. Venezuela crude oil production has significantly dropped in the last couple of year. Currently, the crude oil distribution is enough to sustain the market. This, however, might change drastically if a mishap occurs in the industry.

According to Badiali, any incident that could affect the current crude oil production could greatly destabilize the global economy. Some experts in the industry do not agree with Matt Badiali. They believe sanctions on Iran will not have a significant effect on the economy. They state that the crude oil industry is stable enough as it currently as an extra 900,000 barrel of oil produced each day. Matt Badiali has over 20 years of experience in dealing with the global energy market. He has traveled the world to do research and analysis of different energy markets. He has also sat with key players in the industry to learn various issues and create solutions in the energy and financial sectors.

Most people wonder how Dick Devos is doing in Washington with his wife Betsy Devos, as the US Education Secretary. The truth is that he has been campaigning for her since day one, but it’s also clear that he is still in pursuit of some political career. Why else would he accept a position on the Management Advisory Council for the FAA? Well, he is an avid pilot, aviation enthusiast, and pilot mentor to the West Michigan aviation academy in Grand Rapids.


Most people don’t know the man that Devos is today. They frequently are reminded of the businessman who worked with the Shaquille O’Neal trade back in the 1990s. However, Devos has moved on from his Amway days. He now works as the founder and strategist behind The Windquest Group, which he formed with his wife Betsy Devos. He is also involved in several projects with the Devos Family Foundation. For example, that school is just one of many that the Devos’ have helped in the past.


Devos has been helping the airport in Grand Rapids as well. The Gerald R. Ford International Airport has been around since the early 1900s, but it went through a re-launch in 1999. The re-launch didn’t bring in much traffic, and so the CEO asked Devos if he would be able to help knowing that Devos had some previous relationships with certain airline executives.


One of the most notable is the Air Tran Airways conversation. This was a brief phone call in the early 2000s that Devos made to the CEO of Air Tran Airways. He wanted to talk to him about expanding at the airport. After the call was concluded, the Air Tran Airways CEO was able to open up new flights and terminals at the location, bringing in a large influx of business travelers.


There were some difficult times when Dick Devos had to call up the Southwest CEO to prevent the airline from closing some of its terminals at Grand Rapids location. However, Devos convinced the CEO not to do that as it would be a detriment to the success of the airline. The truth was that the Gerald R. Ford International Airport needed a big boost to expand the airport’s offerings. That came in 2015 when it was announced that the airport would be receiving a $45 million renovation.


It’s these acts and future growth that can help the FAA see a brighter place for air travelers in 2018. Devos will be meeting with the council once every months.
