Executive Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi – President Of Bradesco

Executive Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was born in the year 1951 in Marilia city of Bradesco. Later on, after his high school, he joined the University of Sao Paulo where he enrolled in the faculty of philosophy, science, and letters. Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi then joined Bradesco Bank in 1969 where he began as a clerk. He then went ahead to be a chairman of the insurer of Bradesco group in 2003.

He also participated in other areas such as the private pension and marketing fields, and due to his eye catching determinations, he got promoted to the vice president at the age of 47. Much later on, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi got nominated for the presidency of the bank of Bradesco. The bank of Bradesco during this time was in an unstable condition due to poor management conditions. The bank had just lost its financial rankings to its rival Brazilian bank Itau Unibanco. This situation advantaged Itau Unibanco as it made it the first Brazilian multinational in the financial sector. Due to this kind of challenges, Cypriano, the former president, got overwhelmed as he was also aging, and this eventually led to his retirement at the company’s 65th year.


The board members of Bradesco decided to renew its command, and later on, in March 2009, Trabuco took over the presidency of the bank.  As the fourth president of Bradesco bank, his name managed to take the front line despite the usual disputes. The other three directors by the names Amador Aguiar, Lazaro Brandao, and Cypriano had also contributed to the bank’s success. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s first mission was to enable Bradesco to go back to its previous place in the banking rankings. He, therefore, came up with a corporate university whereby, he rationalized the leadership cadres, while at the same time he coordinated with the executives. He then bought the Brazilian branch of HSBC in 2015, for about US $5.2 billion with the same motive of battling to the top position in the private sector. Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, in his statements, said that the acquisition of HSBC had contributed a lot especially in the bank of Bradesco market shares sector. Within a short period of time, the leading Brazilian Itau Unibanco bank was outperformed by Banco de Deus, a Bradesco branch in Osasco. Bradesco together with HSBC market shares combined overwhelmed the Brazilian bank in various sectors such as; the branch network, number of account holders, and total investment funds among others. According to him, this was a massive unnatural growth to the bank that would have, otherwise, been achieved without the HSBC initiative.

Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s 40 year’s existence in Bradesco has resulted in significant changes in the company’s 65 years of history. From a mere employee to a top level position, he managed to acquire the experience needed to rescue Bradesco. Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi era as the company’s president to date has contributed much, to about 30% profit. For instance, during his time, his leadership skills wildly aided in the elevation of Bradesco share market. This is factual as the statistics showed a whopping two percent rise of total premiums from 23% to 25% . Not only to mention this, but the bank’s profit from insurer contribution also had received a high rise by a stunning 9 % from 26 % the previous figure to 35 %.

How Nathaniel Ru Used Branding To Put His Restaurant Chain Sweetgreen On The Map

A restaurant company can be many things to many people ( It can be the place that a married couple remembers as their first date. A space for celebrating an occasion like a birthday or for commemorating the end of a long productive career by serving as the site of a retirement party. Good food, after all, has a way of bringing people together and serves as an activity that can build community. Restaurant industry newcomer and venture capital darling Sweetgreen knows this better than anyone. Founded by Georgetown alumni Nathaniel Ru and a group of his good friends, the company has successfully brought healthy and tasty salads to communities across the country including to areas like Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Virginia, Maryland and the Bay area in the state of California. The company has been able to launch approximately 40 different locations. Learn more:


The company started because Nathaniel Ru and his partners recognized that there was a need for food that would be nutritious for the people who bought it, taste good and also be as easy to access as a cheap hamburger and a side of fries were at McDonalds or Burger King. With that goal in mind Nathaniel and his friends set out to create a business that could come to define what it means to be a restaurant in the new millennium. One of the things that Nathaniel Ru and his team have done to make Sweetgreen a success is to create a restaurant atmosphere that delivers on a superior customer experience. They go out of their way to train their staff to treat guests like family and to do things like helping a customer who comes through the door with her hands full carry her heavy bags or like covering the seats of bikes belonging to customers with shower caps to keep them from getting wet on rainy days. These are just a few of the things that put the “sweet” in Sweetgreen according to the company. Learn more:


The other factor that sets Sweetgreen apart and makes it a restaurant company to watch is its emphasis on being as much as lifestyle brand as it is a restaurant brand. According to Ru, one of the ways that the company has accomplished this is by hosting a music festival called sweetlife. The music festival has served to successfully build a strong relationship between Sweetgreen and its customers and, according to Nathaniel Ru, built an “emotional connection” with the people that eat at the restaurant. While companies frequently sponsor music festival there are not very many that can say that they actually started one organically in a way that makes perfect sense for its brand.
