Banco Bradesco Searches For A New CEO After Luiz Carlos Trabuco Rises To The Role Of Chairman

Lazaro de Mello Brandao recently decided to retire from his position as chairman of the board at Banco Bradesco. He had held the position of chairman for over 25 years, and, at 91 when he made the decision to step down, was one of the oldest acting bank chairmen still in service. He had worked his way up over the course of more than 40 years with Bradesco, starting out as a simple clerk, and over the course of his long career, has brought significant success to the company. Brandao had chosen Luiz Carlos Trabuco as the board’s new chairman, which was made effective immediately. Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the current chief executive officer of the company, will be naming his own successor in May 2018, but, until that time, he will hold both positions.

The Time to Appoint a New CEO is Fast Approaching for Banco Bradesco
The bank’s current chief executive officer will be selecting his successor in March. The talent pool for the new CEO is by no means shallow, and there are numerous executives itching for a shot at the prestigious position. The race will likely come down to a number of the company’s highest-ranking executives and board members, with a strong focus on the success of the company and its unique employee culture.

Since Lazaro de Mello Brandao first took on his role as chairman over 25 years ago, he has strived for an employee culture that promotes the selection of executives from within the company rather than from without. Due to this, many of the current executives have had long and storied careers with Banco Bradesco, and have always been encouraged to look toward the success of the company in order to advance. Brandao’s philosophy of internal promotion is poised to continue under Luiz Carlos Trabuco, with the most likely candidates for the position of CEO being current executives.

However, the bank’s newest chief executive officer will not be chosen until this March, and there are several candidates who are extremely likely to take home the position. With their enormous contributions to Bradesco and their years of service under both Luiz Carlos Trabuco and Lazaro de Mello Brandao, there are seven executives with the best chance in the upcoming bid for the position. Those executives are Alexandre da Silva Gluher, Octavio de Lazari, Josué Augusto Pancini, Marcelo de Araujo Noronha, André Rodrigues Cano, Mauricio Machado de Minas, and Domingos Figueiredo Abreu. Although de Minas and Noronha have only been with Banco Bradesco since 2009 and 2003 respectively, far fewer years than any of the other candidates, their contributions to Bradesco have been immense. Overall, we’re excited to see where this race will go, and who will come out on top.

About Luiz Carlos Trabuco
The current chief executive officer of Banco Bradesco is still Luiz Carlos Trabuco. While he was promoted to chairman after Brandao stepped down, he will be maintaining his position of CEO in addition to that until such a time as a successor can be chosen.

Although, you would never have guessed as much based on his education, having graduated with a degree in Philosophy. Prior to his appointment as CEO of Banco Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco served as Investor Relations Officer and Executive VP of Bradesco, being appointed as CEO in 2009. In addition, he has served six cumulative years as the chief executive officer of Grupo Bradesco Seguros. His professional life thus far has been almost entirely dedicated to Bradesco and its subsidiaries, and if anyone is fit to carry on Brandao’s legacy, it’s Luiz Carlos Trabuco.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco earned his Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Science and Letters from the University of Sao Paulo. Later, he joined the Foundation School of Sociology and Politics to earn his Master’s in Socio-Psychology. He joined Bradesco bank during his college days at the age of eighteen as clerk.

George Soros Puts His Money Where His Mouth Is

George Soros is known to many as one of the world’s most wealthy people. To those who know him well he is one of the most generous men, donating billions of dollars of his fortune in order to further the social justice issues that he believes needs to be addressed. This was ever present in January of 2018 when Soros announced that he has donated $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations over the past few years. For Soros, this was over two-thirds of his $26 billion fortune he has amassed as an investor. This comes on the heels of the $11 billion he has donated over the past 40 years to progressive and liberal groups in the United States and abroad.

The announcement makes the Open Society Foundation second only to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as the largest foundation of its kind in the entire world. The foundation was founded by George in 1993 in New York City and currently has a presence in 37 countries around the world. The name “Open Society” stems from the popular book by Karl Popper, whom Soros studied under as a student.

Born in Nazi-occupied Hungary in 1930, George Soros escaped to the United Kingdom to attend college in 1947. From the late 1940s to 1954, Soros obtained Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Philosophy from London School of Economics. Early on in his adult life, George struggled to find work but finally got a job in banking in New York City for F.M. Mayer buying and selling European stocks.

After this big break, Soros became an expert of sorts in the European marketplace, using his theory of reflexivity to locate booms and busts in the market. This theory served him well and he eventually became vice president at Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder, where he worked from 1963-1973. This job did not particularly suit him and in 1966 he used $100,000 of his company’s money to invest using his own theory. By 1973, he had amassed a sum of over $12 million in this fund.

Using his fund, over the next 20 years Soros would become one of the richest men in the world. In the early 90s he shorted the British pound at a time when shorting a major currency was unheard of. This move resulted in an over $1 billion profit, cementing Soros as one of the world’s most savvy investors. After starting the Open Society Foundation, Soros has made his life’s work to influence society through philanthropic work and politics. He is the largest single donor to Democratic Party in the United States, lobbying for liberal ideas such as open border, abortion, and drug policy reform.

George Soros has dedicated his life’s work to progressive ideas and helping the needy. His contributions to economic theory is perhaps understated because of his philanthropy but nevertheless, Soros is one of the great economists of the 20th century. His current net worth after this donation, is now estimated at $8 billion.

Fabletics’ Innovative ECommerce Formula

Today, the world of activewear and retail sales has changed significantly, even from just a few years ago. Today, online sales are where a lot of the profits are being made, and all of this has been a real game-changer for the business world. E-commerce sales are a huge part of today’s fashion business, and the truth is that amazon.com already has 20 percent of all of those online sales.

 

 

So, how can any new company succeed in this fierce sales environment? What it takes these days, is a quality product, last mile service, great brand awareness, and the promise of a great customer experience. Right now, the Fabletics activewear brand, which was started just three years ago by actress Kate Hudson and her partners, is showing how it’s done, as this startup brand is now a $250 million company.

 

Kate Hudson’s Entrepreneurial Spirit

 

Kate Hudson began her career with a major success in the film “Almost Famous.” She garnered an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress, and followed up with a string of roles in popular romantic comedies. Through it all, however, she still held onto a dream of making a mark as a fashion entrepreneur. By partnering in Fabletics, she has been able to realize that dream and take it on to a powerful place in the industry.

 

Membership Based

 

Fabletics is subscription based, and this innovation has been shown to be very appealing. Those who buy a membership fill out an online survey on the site about their taste in workout wear and their fitness routines. This allows the company to select clothing that suits their tastes, and to try on pieces at home.

 

Physical Stores

 

Today Fabletics is also making a mark by using a concept of “reverse showrooming” in its physical stores. The company is adding more stores nationwide, to add to the sixteen already existing. The stores bring in about 30-50 percent of customers who are already members, and more customers become members when they visit stores. Customers can try on clothes in the stores, but order them through their own subscription. This has proven a winning formula for customers and for the brand, and it goes against the trend of seeing actual stores as a losing proposition.

 

As the Fabletics brand looks ahead, more growth and more success is seen, as this affordable and innovative fashion brand moves along.
