Meet Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi The New CEO Of Bradesco

Banco Bradesco, the second largest bank in Brazil in terms of market value, will have a new CEO in the person of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. The bank’s former chairman, 91-year old Lazaro de Mello Brandao is stepping down from his post. He has been serving in this capacity for the past 25 years. Brandao’s exit has triggered a race for his seat from among the hopeful executives of the bank.

Cappi has held the position of chief executive officer and will still function in this position until he assumes office in March of this year. The financial institution will hold an election for the person who will hold his former position of CEO.

Before relinquishing his post, Brandao has served in various executive positions at Banco Bradesco for the past 75 years, earning him the distinction of being one of the longest staying bank executive in the world. He started his career in the bank at 16 years old in 1943 as a lowly bank clerk. Through the succeeding years, Brandao eventually climbed up to become an executive of the bank. He held the bank’s CEO post from 1981 to 1999. After that, he became one of two chairmen of Bradesco, the first time the bank ever had the experience.

During his tenure as chairman, Brandao followed the management style of promoting the bank’s executives instead of looking for outside talents. The selection of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi for the chairmanship of the bank is in keeping with this culture. Company insiders revealed that the choice for the next CEO to replace Cappi was limited to the seven highest ranking bank executives at Bradesco. Underlining the bank’s management culture, Cappi said in a media event that the choice will be coming from the bank’s own talent pool.
