Bradesco’s Chairman Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Is Facing Challenges As The Bank’s Stock Drops To A 52-Week Low

Banco Bradesco is a giant in the Brazilian banking industry. Bradesco is right behind Itaú Unibanco in terms of assets under management. But Bradesco has something Itaú doesn’t have, and that is CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi.

Cappi has an unstoppable desire to make stockholders proud as well as make them a lot of money. That’s the way Cappi rolls because deep down inside he is a man on a mission. And that mission is to make Bradesco the best digital bank in Brazil.

Trabuco Cappi took over as chairman when long-time Bradesco Chairman Lázaro de Mello Brandão decided he was going to retire at the end of 2017. Brandão was around when Bradesco was just a small Sao Paulo bank. That small bank helped farmers make ends meet. That was 75-years ago. But Brandão was able to adjust to the big bank mentality, so he was instrumental in giving the bank the direction and the executive energy it needed to make the Bradesco a banking force to reckon with in Brazil.

Even though Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi doesn’t have Brandão’s tenure, he has the reputation for helping Bradesco stay current in the Brazilian banking world. While he was CEO, Cappi put one acquisition after another together, and he built a team of high-powered banking executives that rival any bank team in any developed country in the world.

And the interesting part of the Cappi story is he’s not a banker in terms of education or personality. Cappi is a philosophy and psychology aficionado. He needed a job when he completed his post-graduate studies in psychology, and Brandão is the man who hired him. For decades, Brandão and Cappi worked as a well-oiled banking machine and Wall Street loved that executive combination.

Now that Brandão is not as active, Cappi has another long-time banking executive by his side. Octavio de Lazari, Bradesco’s insurance division director, is the new CEO. Octavio is building an executive team that can handle the challenges that face the bank in 2018 and beyond. Even though the new Bradesco team is stronger than ever, the bank’s stock hit a 52-week low recently. And that’s not what Cappi or any team member expected, but there are reasons for the stock’s lackluster performance, according to Cappi. Brazil’s startup digital banks are taking customers away from the big banks, and Bradesco’s digital bank, Next, isn’t performing as well as expected. Plus, Brazil’s high-interest rates are coming down. Even though Cappi and Octavio de Lazari are not pushing loans to middle-class Brazilians, the digital banks are pushing them, and that is having an impact on Bradesco’s stock.

But Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi and his executive team say the drop in stock prices is temporary. Cappi is making adjustments, and Octavio de Lazari is making sure those adjustments happen in real time. Bradesco’s management team is ready to show the world that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is following in Lázaro de Mello Brandão footsteps. But Cappi is expanding those footprints so Bradesco can stay current in the changing social environment in Brazil.

The Recent Promotion Of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Speaks To Bradesco’s Commitment To Nurture Its Staff

Banco Bradesco SA is in a critical phase of selecting a new chief executive officer. The office will fall vacant sometimes in March next year when Luiz Carlos Trabuco will resign to serve only as the chairman of the board of directors of the second largest private bank in Brazil. Presently, the business leader is both the CEO and the chairman of the bank; he assumed the latter when Lazaro de Mello Brandao resigned mid last month.

Trabuco is not the first executive to hold both the crucial positions at the same time. The founder of the bank, Amado Aguiar, was both the CEO and the chairman of the bank. Brandao relieved him of the presidency duties in 1981. Ten years later, Brandao also took over from him the chairmanship of the bank. Starting in 1991 until 1999, Brandao was both the president and the commander of the board of directors of the bank. He resigned as the president of the bank in 1999 allowing Marcio Cypriano to preside over the bank as the CEO. However, he continued discharging his duties as the chairman of the board until his resignation on October 11. Brando, who is over 90 years, was quick to state that his departure was willful; it came out of his conviction to the bank’s smooth continuity. Indeed, the 66-year-old Trabuco is suited to preside over the board of directors. The chairman of the board represents Fundação Bradesco which is the controlling shareholder of Banco Bradesco SA.

Brandao, who is the holder of the no. 1 employee badge at Banco Bradesco, retired after serving the bank for a whopping 74 years. In fact, he began working at the bank when the financial institution was just starting out in 1943. Brandao joined the bank as a clerk. Although Brandao did not complete his fundamental studies, his track record is a testimony he was devoted to establishing Bradesco not only as the leading bank in Brazil but also in Latin America and the world. His regular calls for promoting results-oriented employees of the bank to preside over leadership ranks within the bank is what is informing the bank’s next choice of the chief executive officer.

Sources revealed to Bloomberg that one the following seven professionals is likely to take over from Trabuco.

• Mauricio Machado de Minas

• Alexandre da Silva Gluher

• Domingos Figueiredo Abreu

• Josué Augusto Pancini

• Marcelo de Araujo Noronha

• Octavio de Lazari

• André Rodrigues Cano

Of course, the seven are Bradesco’s employees presently in charge of essential departments. For example, Cano is the head of the human resources department, Lazari is the president of Bradesco Seguros, di Minas is in charge of Bradesco’s IT department and the list goes on.

Trabuco joined Bradesco in 1969. He was a teenager then—only 18-years-old. He served the institution in the capacity of a clerk and was promoted successively until he achieved his significant breakthrough in 2009 when he was named as the overall president of the bank.

Trabuco was appointed unopposed to chair the board of directors. An analysis of his track record indicates that Trabuco deserved nothing short of the recent appointment. His name prominently features in large transactions undertaken by the bank. For example, he is credited with overseeing the bank’s purchase of the Brazilian branch of HSBC for over $5 billion. He is also the man behind the establishment of the award-winning Unibrad Corporate University.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s work speaks volumes about his abilities as a leader. In fact, in 2015, the then Brazil’s president requested him to be his point man in the country’s Ministry of Finance; he declined the generous offer choosing to serve Bradesco.
