Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s Succession Contest Narrowed Down to Seven High-Ranking Executives

     The office of the presidentCEO of Banco Bradesco SA will fall vacant in March when the incumbent, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, steps down. Cognizant of this fact, the Osasco-based Bradesco is in the process of picking Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s successor. Reliable information suggests that the bank has narrowed down the succession contest to seven high-ranking executives.

  • Mauricio Machado de Minas
  • Domingos Figueiredo Abreu
  • Alexandre da Silva Gluher
  • Josué Augusto Pancini
  • Marcelo de Araujo Noronha
  • Octavio de Lazari
  • André Rodrigues Cano

The seven are high-ranking Bradesco’s staff meaning that they are in charge of departments or subsidiaries. Mauricio Machado de Minas oversees the smooth running of the bank’s IT department. Domingos Figueiredo Abreu is at the helm of Bradesco’s treasury and lending departments. Alexandre da Silva Gluher is the bank’s chief risk officer. Pancini is responsible for Bradesco’s branch network including the bank’s high-income segment. Marcelo de Araujo Noronha is the president of Bradesco BBI; a subsidiary tasked with the bank’s corporate and investment banking as well as its card operation. Just like Noronha, Octavio de Lazari is the president of Bradesco Seguros, a subsidiary in charge of Bradesco’s insurance business. André Rodrigues Cano is the team leader of Bradesco’s human resources department.

Looking at their ages and the duration the seven have been at Bradesco, one can quickly conclude that most of them started their professional careers at Bradesco. For instance, the 57-year-old Pancini has been an employee of the bank for 43 years. Lazari, Gluher, and Cano are 40, 42, and 41 years respectively and each of them has been part of the bank for over 40 years. Its only Minas and Noronha that joined Bradesco recently as compared with rest. Bradesco hired Minas in 2009 and Noronha in 2003.

Elevating one of its high-ranking executives to succeed the outgoing Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will require the bank to fill the vacancy that will arise. Put differently, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s resignation is likely to ignite a far-reaching succession chain. This will be made possible by Bradesco’s culture that favors elevation of junior staff to higher ranks whenever vacancies arise.

What’s next for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

Contrary to expectations, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is not leaving Bradesco anytime soon as he was appointed unopposed to replace the immediate former chairman, Lazaro de Mello Brandao. The executive is in Bradesco to stay. He confirmed this when he declined to take former president Dilma Rousseff’s offer to be in charge of Brazil’s ministry of finance.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has been an employee of Bradesco for almost five decades. In fact, he started his banking career at the bank. He is an embodiment of loyal staff, sticking with the bank through thick and thin. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has had a hand in important business strategies undertaken by Bradesco. For instance, he credited with convincing the board of directors that acquiring the Brazilian branch of HSBC was a worthy inorganic growth strategy. To date, the acquisition ranks among the best business decisions undertaken by the bank.

Lazaro de Mello Brandao

Holding a job for one year is an achievement for some people, but Lazaro de Mello Brandao thinks otherwise. According to him, an achievement is keeping the same job for more than seven decades and maintaining the zeal to serve. Brandao, 91, resigned having dedicated more than 80 percent of his life to the Osasco based bank.

Starting in 1981 to October 11, 2017, Brandao held senior management positions at the Osasco-based Bradesco. At the helm of Bradesco, many people found it hard to believe that he started his career at the bank as a clerk.

Betsy DeVos is Publicly Polite, but a Political Fighter

www.nytimes.com/2017/02/23/us/politics/education-secretary-betsy-devos-donald-trump.html

 

While Betsy DeVos privately supported an Obama Administration policy that allowed students to use school lavatories consistent with their gender identities, President Trump disagreed and reversed the rule. Still, the recently confirmed Secretary of Education gave no public sign of discord existing between Trump and herself. Instead, she voiced support for the decision. Some took that as a sign that she would be a weak and demurring Secretary of Education. Her “motherly” appearance and temperament reinforced that perception.

 

Her supporters say nothing could be further from the truth. Apparently, hardball politics is her game. She’s a billionaire, and she’s not afraid to use her money to reward supporters and steamroll opponents. Even the pro-Democrat president of the American Federation of Teachers said, in effect, “She may speak softly. But she carries a big stick.”

 

Ms. DeVos’ confirmation hearings were anything but smooth. She seemed confused about federal laws requiring public schools to serve students with disabilities and had little or no knowledge of the long-standing debate in the education community on whether to use standardized test scores to measure a student’s proficiency. She even suggested that protecting students “from potential grizzlies” was a reason guns should be allowed in schools. Still, her appointment was confirmed by a margin of 51-50. Vice President Mike Pence had to step in and cast the deciding vote. Friends say that while she was annoyed at being made to look incompetent, she remained unbowed.

 

The education philosophy of Ms. DeVos boils down to one word: choice. “Parents no longer believe that a one-size-fits-all model of learning meets the needs of every child,” she said. “And they know other schooling options exist, whether magnet, virtual, charter, home, faith-based or any other combination.”

 

Ms. DeVos has long been in favor of diverting funds away from public schools and into privately run schools of choice. She is said to be ambivalent about what form schools should take, but she is fiercely committed to the idea that allowing parents to decide where their children, and their tax dollars, go to school is the ideal free-market solution to improving educational outcomes. She has expressed a desire to issue publicly funded vouchers so that parents can send their children to whatever schools they see fit –- even schools run by for-profit educational companies.

 

In her home state of Michigan, she mustered all of her resources, political and financial, to oppose state lawmakers pushing for rules to govern the formation of new charter schools and the shuttering of failing ones. Again, she believes winners and losers should be determined by the free market, not legislative forces.

 

Certainly, there’s nothing sacred about public schools in the eyes of Ms. DeVos. She has gone on record saying the failing public schools in the state’s largest city cannot be salvaged and should be shut down. Her supporters say she understands what too many Americans do not: that even “good” U.S. public schools under perform relative to the schools found in other developed nations.

Eric Lefkofsky’s move of treating Cancer at Tempus

Modern improvements in the health sector have resulted in more effective treatments for numerous cardiovascular and infectious diseases. This has dramatically increased the life expectancy of people in the United States. The recent years have seen significant improvements in the treatment and screening of individuals diagnosed with cancer. These upgrades have driven the need for cancer-based measures to increase medical care for people living with the disease.

After a well-established analysis of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) cancer registries, scientists found that the cancer prevalence varied by the patient’s age. The type of cancer also varied by the age of the patients. SEER is doing all it can to differentiate new cancers from metastatic or recurrent ones, to reduce doctors from mistaking the new ones from the recurrent ones. It is, however, difficult to distinguish them as they are dependent on factors like the patient’s prevalence of tobacco use and SEER’s new approach to medical practice.

The analysis also helps to improve care for cancer patients. It also explains the importance of taking both a holistic and nuanced approach to health care when it comes to treating cancer. Careful attention to the general health of patients is vital. This is important as every cancer patient counts.

Erick Lefkosky is the co-founder of Tempus, a technology company that is working towards fighting the battle against cancer. He is also the chairman and co-founder of Groupon, a global e-commerce marketplace. Erick has dedicated his life towards cancer research. He has been working with Tempus to build a health-tech infrastructure that modernizes the treatment of the epidemic. His love and care for cancer patients have made him be motivated to battle the disease.

He and his wife went on to form a charitable trust, which supports charitable and educational organizations in the world. Tempus, the company he works at, focuses on collecting and analyzing data using proprietary algorithms and statistical analysis to find opportunities to help a patient’s physician in providing accurate and personalized medicine. Its primary goal is to help doctors to develop better treatment and care plan for patients.
