We are very pleased to announce that Jose Isaac Peres, Founder, President and Chairman of the Board of Multiplan as the Brazilian honoree of the 2022 Brazil-Florida Business Award. This prestigious honor is awarded annually to remarkable business leaders and corporations for their extraordinary contributions to the economic development of Brazil and Florida.

An internationally recognized developer and owner of major residential and commercial real estate holdings, José Isaac Peres has been involved in the conceptualization and construction of more than 35,000 residential condominium units in over 350 projects around the world. The self-made father of five launched his first business as a passionate 22-year-old student in Rio de Janeiro and today manages and owns one of the largest real estate portfolios in South America. His Golden Green oceanfront condominium in Rio de Janeiro, for example—which comprises 14 water-front towers surrounded by spectacular amenities, including a private golf course—is a landmark for the city and, to this day, one of the preferred luxury beachfront developments in Brazil.

It is with this same focus that Peres launched Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management in the United States, building upon his long-standing history of excellence with iconic projects that herald a new and prosperous era for South Florida.

As the founder, Chief Executive Officer, President and member of the Board of Executive Officers of Brazil-based Multiplan Empreendimentos Imobiliários S.A., Peres has amassed a portfolio of 19 malls with more than 800,000m2 of Gross Leasable area, which serve more than 5,400 stores and approximately 180 million visitors per year. Adding to his achievements, Peres’ Multiplan Group is the first Brazilian real estate-focused enterprise to receive an investment-grade rating from S&P on a global scale. As a founding (and still active) member, he established the Brazilian Association of Shopping Centers (ABRASCE) and is also a member of the Association of Managers of Real Estate Companies. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Faculdade de Economia da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro.

Dark suit (tie required) for gentlemen and suit/ cocktaildress for ladies recommended.
