Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Resigns From Bradesco

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi recently announced that he was resigning as CEO of Bradesco. This announcement was a surprise for many people. From the outside, it looks like Bradesco is doing well. Although the company is growing, it is not as profitable as some people would like. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was a solid business leader, but he was simply not delivering on some of the most important numbers for the company.

The race to become the next CEO at Bradesco will be extremely competitive. Bradesco is one of the largest banks in Brazil, and everyone in the industry wants to lead the company. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is going to pursue other interests in his life.


For many years, Bradesco was stuck in terms of sales growth. The economy in Brazil was not growing, and lending requirements were getting more strict from the government. This caused the company to continually lose money and take on more debt.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi took over the company and quickly implemented various changes. Not only did he develop more loan options for people, but he also made it easier to borrow money with online options.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi also wanted to attract the best talent in the industry. He quickly got to work hiring people from the industry who he knew from previous companies. This is one of the reasons why the company started to do so well. Not only were employees passionate about their work, but they were also making more at Bradesco than at other banks in the area.

Although sales growth started to increase, the total profits of the company never improved. According to Bradesco was lending more money, but many of the clients were defaulting on their loans. This hurt Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s reputation at the company. Bradesco believes that they can hire a CEO who can both increase sales and profits. The search has already started to find a new leader of the company.

Community Outreach

Banking Trends

The good news for Bradesco is that the overall banking industry is solid. After years of struggling to grow, the banking industry is one of the best industries in the economy. More people than ever before are moving to Brazil to start businesses and invest in real estate. This has resulted in a huge increase in demand for loans.

Although Bradesco has some things to improve, the company is in good shape due to the leadership of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi being the president. He is the type of person who had the innovative thinking needed to get the company to a new level.


Luiz Carlos Trabuco Rises From Clerk To Global CEO

Since 2009, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has been at the helm of Brazil’s second-largest banking conglomerate, Bradesco. His tenure hasn’t been without challenges, the company’s stock price has stagnated and there were some teething issues in performing the largest acquisition in Brazil’s history, that of HSBC Brazil. But overall, his tenure has been a success.

The Brazilian banking market has become one of the most competitive in the world, with a strong trend towards the largest companies acquiring anyone smaller who is in the black. Although Trabuco has only been able to oversee a small increase in Bradesco’s market cap, he has successfully grown the bank to be a strong competitor in the race for the title on Largest Bank in Brazil, in a period where almost all of Bradesco’s competition has lost money.

By all accounts, Trabuco is a highly capable leader and agile businessman. But he is proof that, sometimes, great leaders are made, not born. In a sense, he is very much an old-time CEO. Bradesco has been the only job he’s ever had. This has given him a front row seat to not only witness the profound changes in Brazilian banking over the last 50 years but to participate in them. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Trabuco is one of Brazil’s foremost living banking experts.

Shortly after graduating high school, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi got his first job as a teller at the firm. In 1969, at just 18 years old, Trabuco landed in the firm where he would one day be catapulted to the company’s top slot. Over the next 40 years, he worked in almost every department, eventually reaching his first executive role, at the age of just 41, in 1992.

In that year, he was appointed as the head of Bradesco’s financial planning arm. He quickly proved to be an able leader, growing the business from an insignificant department into one of the company’s most important revenue earners. Eventually Groupo Bradesco de Seguros e Previdencia would contribute 30 percent of the companies total revenues.

In 2003, he was again promoted, this time taking over the firm’s hugely lucrative insurance underwriting arm. Again, he grew the business from low double-digit percentages of the total revenues into a money-printing powerhouse that represented over 40 percent of the firm’s total revenues. By the time Trabuco left the insurance wing of Bradesco, it was the single largest underwriter of insurance policies in the country.

In 2009, company CEO Mario Cypriano was slated to retire due to the company charter requiring that all executives do so once they have reached the age of 65. Trabuco was, again, a natural fit for the slot. He was eventually appointed to the top slot at Bradesco, becoming the company’s 4th CEO and completing the journey from the lowliest, entry-level employee all the way to the head of one of the largest banking conglomerates in Latin America.

Over the past 8 years, Trabuco has again proven himself a capable leader and a visionary. He recently completed the acquisition of HSBC Brazil, the largest business transaction in the country’s history. This has, once again, put Bradesco in the running for the largest bank in Brazil. In fact, by some measures, it’s already larger than its closest competitor, Itau Unibanco.

Today, Bradesco has over 5,000 branches in every state of Brazil. It has more than $400 billion in assets and has more money under management than any other bank in Latin America. It also has more deposits, checking accounts and account holders in general than Itau.

Under Trabuco’s leadership, Bradesco has truly become a world-class player.
