Robert Santiago is a famous entrepreneur in Brazil and the owner of top modern Manaira shopping mall located in his hometown. He was born on July 16, 1958, in Joao Pessoa, the place in which he grew up from. He is a graduate of the University Centre of Joao Pessoa, from where he studied business administration. Before then he had also studied at Pio X-Marist College.
Santiago started his career at a décor manufacturing company, known as Café Santa Rosa, where he just worked for a while. He then went into business by opening his own company, Cartonnage Company, for selling cardboard cartoons and later on decorative products. His company grew and through it, Santiago was able to venture into real estate.
Investing in real estate worked out favorably for Santiago. He bought a parcel of land in 1987 and started building in it. In 1989, Santiago launched a mall, Manaira mall, which was his first venture.
The mall stands on a 75 000 meter square land in Paraibana Capital located on the north coast beaches of João Pessoa. The versatile and reputable mall has 280 stores. The mall is accommodative for the entire family and has modern movie theaters, a rooftop concert hall, a gym, gaming area, a college, a food court, a financial institution, and numerous shopping stores. The game station has about 200 gaming machines with various games suitable for all ages and preferences, not to mention the ballroom and modern bowling alleys.
While the initial construction was a bit smaller, the mall has to date undergone five expansions, making it the largest business venture in Paraíba.
The Mangeira Mall
other than Manaira Mall, Santiago also owns another mall known as Mangeira shopping, which he launched in 2014 in Paraíba Capital. Mangeira mall is built on the modern architecture and the only one of such design in entire Brazil. Mangeira shopping was built in over 2 years and its construction generated over 3,000 jobs to the locals.
Mangeira Shopping already has 350,000 potential customers by the time of its opening. And some of the shopping stores in it were able to record high turnover of up to five times over other malls by the time of its inauguration.
Robert Santiago aim for the mall was to bring growth and development to the area just like the case of Manaira.

The two malls are no doubt the home for family, fun, and entertainment in João Pessoa and great stimulators of the economic growth of the place.
