Roberto Santiago is a very influential business person in Brazil. This is because of the ownership of the two biggest malls in the nation, the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall, and the Mangeira Mall. Santiago is considered the king of entertainment in Brazil.
Roberto Santiago, now 58 years old, was born in Joao Pessoa. As he grew up, he realized that his people had to travel to access recreational facilities. He decided to give them a well-equipped leisure facility. His dream was to see that they never had to travel to have fun. Many of them had given up the leisure time due to the extra cost they had to incur. Travelling also seemed to consume a lot of time.
Santiago’s dream did not happen in a fortnight. However, he was a young person with a difference. He accomplished so much at his age. He was too ambitious for his age. In preparation for his dream, he went to Pio-X-Marist College, where he studied finance. Santiago then proceeded and got a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Joao Pessoa. The education was a great foundation for his career.
Santiago then got his first job at a home décor company, Café Rosa. As an employee, he was competent and interested in everything that went on in the firm. Instead of being bored and looking forward to going home like many employees, he used this time to learn. Within a short time, he decided it was time to compete with his employer. He began his cartonnage company. At first, he only manufactured cardboards from cartons. They later upgraded and became one of the best home décor companies in Brazil.
Despite the success that he got from the home décor company, he knew that, that was not his final goal. This is why in 1987, he bought a piece of land to commence his ultimate project. Building the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall took him two years only. He launched the mall in 1989.
The mall is made up of 280 premises. There are hospitals, schools, colleges, banks, gyms, gaming arena, food courts just to name a few. The food courts of the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall are regularly updated to ensure that they serve all their clients.
In 2009, Roberto Santiago launched the Domus Hall. The hall is built at the top of the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall. The hall is designed to accommodate more than 10000 individuals. Various projects like concerts, watching the latest movies in 3D to social activities are held here.
The Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall has served many purposes to the people of Joao Pessoa. It has made their society lively through the unlimited entertainment. The presence of the mall has also facilitated their economy. Santiago is happy to live to see his dream come true.
