Luiz Carlos Trabuco: After More Than Four Decades At Bradesco, He Has Shaped The Bank Just As Much As It Has Shaped Him

Founded in 1943, Banco Bradesco is not only one of the oldest banks in Brazil, but it is also among the most successful. In eight short years, the bank had grown to become the largest private bank in the country, and it has consistently among the industry leaders since. The bank’s consistent success over the last seven decades has been down to the contribution of four key men: Amador Aguiar, Lazaro Brandao, Marcio Cypriano and Luiz Carlos Trabuco. Aguiar was the bank’s founding president opening up the bank’s first office in Marilia before overseeing its shift in headquarters to Sao Paulo in 1953. Brandao was Bradesco’s second president and he also currently serves as the chairman of the board. Marcio was the bank’s third president, having taken over in 1999. He is most remembered for aggressively expanding the bank through a number of high-profile takeovers shortly after the turn of the 20th century. However, the individual that has arguably had the greatest impact on the bank’s current standing is Luiz Carlos Trabuco. He has worked at the bank for 48 years and has had the opportunity to learn from each of his three legendary predecessors.

Before becoming president at Bradesco, the most important job Luiz Carlos Trabuco had held in his four-decade stay at the company was the president of the bank’s insurance division. With him in charge, the insurance company grew tremendously and successfully managed to cement its position as the leading player in the crowded market. A major reason for this quick success was the fact that Luiz Carlos Trabuco approached insurance as a sector to both effect social change and generate profit for the company’s shareholders. This outlook also earned him the respect of many in Brazil’s financial sector, leading to him being twice named the insurance personality of the year by Coverage Magazine. By the time he left the insurer, he had made it an integral part of the Bradesco brand as it generated 38% of the bank’s returns in 2008. These results got him named Bradesco president in 2009.

In the time since becoming the main man at Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has managed to grow the bank tremendously. He has employed both the traditional organic growth strategy, where the bank has been slowly expanding its network and attracting new clients through marketing campaigns and some smart acquisitions. The first series of acquisitions made during his term came in 2010 when Bradesco Ibi Brazilian and Ibi Mexican that were previously the subsidiaries of Dutch multinational, C&A. The next, and arguably the biggest in the Brazilian financial industry’s recent history, acquisition came in 2015 when Bradesco bought the Brazilian operation of London-based HSBC for an estimated $5.2 billion.

Bradesco and Luiz Carlos Trabuco himself have also received a number of awards since he became president in 2009. In 2011, Bradesco surprised many in Brazil by being ranked fourth on the list of the world’s 500 greenest organizations by Newsweek. The bank’s high placing globally also meant that it was the greenest company in Brazil. On the other hand, barely months into his tenure as Bradesco president, Luiz Carlos Trabuco was included in the list of the 100 most influential Brazilians in the country by Epoca Magazine. Six years later, his completion of the HSBC acquisition got him named the entrepreneur of the year in the finance category by Istoe Dinheiro Magazine. Further, in 2016 he had the honor of having his name included in the list of the best CEOs in Brazil by Forbes Magazine.

The Resilience of Aloha Construction

The construction industry has shown resilience over time. Despite the challenges facing the growth of the economy, the construction sector has recorded a significant growth. During and after the elections, most investors were hesitant to get into the market due to the unpredictability of the post-elections. This saw a decline across all economic sectors. However, since then the construction industry has recorded an upsurge of development opportunities, and it has created more jobs as compared to previous years.
According to the experts in the field, all is not rosy for the property developers. They are facing a myriad of challenges despite the seemingly flourishing sector.
According to Aloha Construction Company, one of the leading construction companies based in Lake Zurich, the industry has seen a decline of orders from non-residential sector. Apparently, more people are choosing to work from the office thereby reducing the need for a work space. Therefore, this has led to a decline in the need to develop more corporate building and created a shift towards the residential sector.
The other challenge facing the industry is the reduced demand for developing the property. This is due to increased cost of the raw materials. The high cost has contributed to a reduced profit margin for the developers. Aloha Construction Company has however experienced an increase in orders despite the current challenges. The following factors can be attributed to their resilience:
• Aloha Construction have made a name as one of the leading companies in roofing. Therefore, most clients trust their services and contract them alongside other developers who might be in-charge of other responsibilities in the property development.
• They have a team of certified specialists in charge of specific tasks. This is an assurance that they can deliver quality work.
• Aloha Construction believes in time management so that they can complete each task at the desired time and move on to the next project.

Securus Technologies Tightening Grip on Drugs in Jails

Drugs inside the jail are just a dangerous mix for anyone who has to spend time behind the prison walls. Not only are me and my fellow corrections officers in danger when we have to confront an inmate who is high, so are other inmates, prison staff, visitors, and those contractors working inside these walls. To keep drugs out of the jail, we have to work hard at being able to identify any weaknesses in our system.

Our quest to stop the drugs from getting into the jail begins with me and my fellow officers searching every guest and inmate that meets in the visitor center. This is the one time these two are in close quarters, so stopping the flow here does help. Next, we check inmate cells throughout the day for anything that should not be in there. Even with these efforts, the inmates still have been able to score drugs when they want.

When Securus Technologies installed out call monitoring system, things began to finally take a turn for the better for everyone looking to increase safety inside this jail. Securus Technologies is run by CEO Richard Smith, and has well over two thousand of these systems in jails around the country. The entire Dallas-based staff are committed to making this world safe, and it really does show in how they helped us learn to use the LBS software.

Once we are ready to run the software, it instantly picks up on chatter from the inmates on a number of subjects. We have heard inmates talking about selling drugs to other inmates. One time we heard an inmate ask his mother to bring him all of her prescription drugs an tell the insurance company she was robbed. Each time we get an alert we take the appropriate action to clean up the jail.

Music Remains a Passion for Financial Expert Cassio Audi

The latest financial moves made by investment specialist and economic guru Cassio Audi may make headlines across the nation as many everyday people look to his advice for their own investment portfolio but Cassio Audi had a career long before he became a finance specialist. It may seem to be a long way from the usually conservative world of the financial markets for Cassio Audi to move from his initial career as a drummer with one of the most successful heavy metal bands ever to appear in the Brazilian music industry.

In 1985, the heavy metal genre was only just starting to appear on the streets of Brazil following the end of the austerity and conservative regime of a dictatorship controlling almost every aspect of life in the South American nation. As often follows a strict regime disbanding, a creative boom followed and Cassio Audi rode this wave as the drummer for the still touring band, Viper. The birth of Viper came in the city of Sao Paulo when Cassio Audi joined the Passarell brothers in developing a heavy metal band that would become the now legendary Viper.

The work of Cassio Audi with Viper would shock the music critics of the world who did not believe a group of Brazilian teenagers could create and craft an album that would go down in the history of the heavy metal genre as one of the best ever created. In 1987, Cassio Audi and his fellow Viper band members signed a contract with the Rock Brigade label to record the album, “Soldiers of Sunrise” across the course of a single week. Although Cassio Audi’s drumming and musical skill were praised by critics and fans alike, he decided to return to his studies and embark on the career in finance which would make his name on a global scale.

Aloha Construction Advises Pet Owners On How to Keep Their Dogs Safe

If you own a dog and you plan on renovating your home, you have to take the right steps to make sure that your dog is safe. If you follow the instructions of Aloha Construction, your dog will be safe and happy.

First, you might want to distract your dog, according to Aloha Construction. You can take your dog to the park and play some games there. Exercising together is a great way to bond with your dog. If you can not take your dog to the park, take it to a quiet room and play some games there. Brainy games are a great way to distract your dog and stimulate its mind at the same time.

Also, says Aloha Construction, you need to make sure that it does not get injured in any way. That is why you should keep it as far away from the construction site as possible. There are fumes, chemicals, dust, debris, and various sharp objects and tools that can cause injury to your dog or harm its health. Keep an eye on your dog at all times. Another reason you want to keep your dog away from the construction, according to Aloha Construction, is because all the noises and the strangers at the site will likely spook your dog. It will not know what is going on and it will become very nervous and anxious.

Aloha Construction has a lot of experience with working with pet owners. They know that dogs love routine. You want to keep your dog on its regular routine, or at least as much as possible, according to Aloha Construction. Obviously, some things will be different when you’re working on your home. However, you can still keep its meal times, play times, sleep times, and walking times on their regular schedule. You can play its usual games and give it its usual food.

Beneful Dog Food-What Does It Mean?

To me when I hear the word Beneful I think of the word nutritious. The reason I think of the word nutritious is that I have always thought of Beneful as a dog food brand that made dog food that is not only good tasting but also has everything in it that a dog needs to maintain health thus making it Nutritious. Along with thinking nutritious I also think of the word full. I always used to think Beneful stood for a dog who’s name was Bene and that he was Full because i believe that Beneful is a delicious dog food with many different flavors so that every dog at the end of the day can be full. The real question is what do you think Beneful means? Do you think that it means that a dog is full like i do or do you think it means something else?
