Roberto Santiago is a renowned entrepreneur who hails from Brazil. He joins Paraiba’s legendary entrepreneurs. As the owner of the prominent Manaira Shopping Mall, Roberto Santiago is defined as a dedicated business professional. But just how did he start it?
Roberto Santiago is 58 years old. He grew up in Joao Pessoa. Later on, he joined Pio X-Marist College before joining the University Centre of Joao Pessoa. Because he loved the idea of owning a business in future, Roberto Santiago majored in business administration. For his first job, Roberto Santiago worked at Café Santa Rosa. The interior décor manufacturing company had a lot of lessons to offer. While working in the company, Santiago learned the value of excellent service delivery. Being visionary, he left the company to establish a Cartonnage company.
Roberto Santiago worked with suppliers to sell the cartons manufactured from cardboard. The company developed into the manufacturer of multiple decorative products. With the leadership of Roberto Santiago, most clients were satisfied by the service delivery scope.
Roberto’s company started making a lot of profits when he decided to delve into real estate. At that point, he had made enough money to jump-start the real estate business. That must have been the best decision he ever made in his career. Instantly, he purchased land in Pessoa Joao. Wondering what he wanted to accomplish with the area, he settled for building a mall. What began as a boutique idea is now one of his initial success stories.

The Domus Hall
The Domus Hall sits on the rooftop of Manaira Shopping Mall. It can accommodate up to 10, 000 people. All too often, it is used during concerts and musicals. Perhaps the most exciting bit of the hall is the fact that it is air-conditioned.
