Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s Dignified Exit From Bradesco

As they say, good things happen to good people. In Brazil is one good man, and Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is his name. Trabuco, who was once the President of Bradesco, plays an active role as a member of the board of directors in the same company.

Bradesco, which is also the largest private bank in all of Brazil, has been lucky to have a man like Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi lead its affairs from the front-line. It has not been easy for Cappi, but thanks to his dedication to service, has ensured that everything runs smoothly as the CEO.

Cappi’s exit from Bradesco is barely a year old. Carlos had the mandate of choosing his successor before taking leave of the banking institution, a responsibility he graciously took. Out of all the possible candidates, Luiz found Octavio de Lazari Junior the most capable. Hence, there is a lot in store for Bradesco now that it has a capable leader highly knowledgeable in matters banking and insurance.

Carlos, who has always protected the interests of Bradesco, made a wise move by selecting Lazari to take over from him. He settled for Octavio when he realized that Lazari would take Bradesco to the next level by boosting productivity.

Trabuco, before his exit, also nominated Domingos Figueiredo, Josue Pancini, Alexandre Gluher, and Mauricio Minas as vice presidents of the company. As you are aware, Cappi has always had Bradesco’s best interests at heart. According to, nominating more vice presidents was a move aimed at strengthening the corporation’s management structure, something that has worked even in Trabuco’s absence.

The new board composed of four new vice presidents would also ensure that the company spreads its roots into innovation and technology. In truth, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s approach is working, as each board member has been able to improve corporate efficiencies.

Why did Cappi settle for Pancini, Figueiredo, Minas, and Gluher out of all the other available options at the time? Trabuco has always been a master strategist. He appointed each of the members mentioned earlier for he knew everyone would bring something unique to the table. Pancini qualified due to his expertise in network and high income; Figueiredo for his specialization in in-house control; Minas for being an expert in technological matters; and Gluher in risk and audit. The witty Cappi was thus able to create a robust team, the kind of leadership that would alleviate Bradesco’s position in existing markets.

Above all, Trabuco had Cassiano Scarpelli and Eurico Ramos promoted to the ranks of vice president, to assist the other four corporate leaders in running the affairs of the company.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, who is now the ex-president of Bradesco, set the foundation stones long before Octavio’s arrival. The confident Trabuco knows that even with his departure, Bradesco will remain stronger than ever.
