New Director of Sales & Marketing


We are proud to announce the promotion of Paulo Jacuzzi to Director of Sales and Marketing. Paulo will be assuming the responsibilities previously held by the National Sales Manager, as well as continuing to direct the Marketing and IT Departments.

Paulo has been an integral part of Jason International for many years. He grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where his father, and our founder, was the president of Jacuzzi Brazil. After the family returned to the United States, he graduated from Little Rock Catholic High and went on to UALR where he majored in Business Management.

Since the age of 14, Paulo has worked in various roles at Jason International, including Marketing Services Coordinator. He left briefly to serve as Director of Admissions at Burning Tree in Kaufman, TX, in order to gain experience and business perspective in a different environment. After returning to Jason in 2006 he assumed the role of Communications Manager, which he has held until his recent promotion.

Paulo is passionate about carrying forward the company’s heritage, as well as promoting the health benefits of bathing. “Jason has continued to move forward, even in this time of economic crisis,” says Jacuzzi. “I believe this is due to our innovative thinking, along with a consistently exceptional product. The history of this company has been one of progress, and it is with that attitude that we will continue to advance in our industry.”

Paulo loves new technologies and all things computer-related, and in his free time he enjoys cycling and working at the family farm in Vilonia. He lives in Little Rock with his wife, Jennifer, and has one daughter, Mallory, who is a sophomore at TCU.
