The company at the time was facing a myriad of constraints, and a withholding tax introduced by the government then was not helping the situation. CVC was also being hit with a barrage of inspections that were constantly affecting its ability to operate. This would, however, serve to strengthen the resolve Guilherme Paulus had and he found himself working harder than ever. He began going after corporate clients by sending organizations’ proposals on ideas on where and how to plan their staff tours as well as giving them prices that were unbeatable at the time.

Life for Guilherme Paulus would change from that point on, and he focused more on improving this area of the company. By early 2000, the company was able to organize cruise ship tours to Brazil something that had not been done before. This was a time when innovative products were the key to remaining relevant in the market and as such they had to keep coming. The company invested in online marketing to further grow its portfolio.

Since becoming CEO of the AIA, Robert Ivy has been very outspoken about the necessity of architects collaborating with other disciplines to promote public health and resiliency. In May of 2016 he wrote a blog titled Architects of Health for the Huffington Post. The article discusses how the architectural sector and public health sector can collaborate to fight the obesity epidemic in America. He cites how the MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio had partnered up with an architecture firm to design a facility which encourages exercise to promote recovery. Ivy also cites how architects have teamed up with park planners in Manhattan to design the High Line.

In November of 2012, Robert Ivy did an interview with ZDNet in which he discusses how in the past architecture was mainly focused on “formalism”. That is, they focused on how a building looked as an object rather than how it could affect positive social change. Ivy believes the new architect needs to be more socially engaged by considering how a building can have an influence on sustainability and physical/mental health. He emphasizes the necessity of “well-being as opposed to welfare”.

In both Robert Ivy’s interviews and articles he discusses how the AIA is creating solutions to society’s problems through architecture. He discusses how the AIA is creating hackathons which bring experts from different sectors to coalesce around design solutions. Ivy emphasizes how architecture cannot operate in isolation and emphasizes that the field needs individuals from diverse backgrounds to have influence on future design.
