Bradesco’s Own Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, His Younger Years, Career Moves, Awards, and High Points

The year was 2008. After decades upon decades of Banco Bradesco holding the title of the largest bank of Brazil, if not the entirety of South America, a late 2008 merger between Banco Itaú and Unibanco caused the newly-birthed financial ultra-entity to reign supreme as the largest bank in Brazil. Just one year later, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was promoted to President after 40-plus years of excelling in various appointments by Bradesco.

We fast forward six years to 2015. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi developed, pushed for, and negotiated the acquisition of HSBC Holdings’ Brazilian network of financial institutions, aptly named HSBC Brazil, for $5.2 billion, equivalent to an excess of 17 billion Brazilian reals at the time. Despite facing resistance from stakeholders, creditors, and fellow managers within Banco Bradesco’s ranks, the acquisition turned out to prove fruitful for the banking organization. The growth fostered by the deal was roughly equivalent to six years’ worth of organic advancement at Bradesco, helping it exceed the performance of all other banks, inching it closer to that number-one spot.

Bradesco’s executives have historically proved highly beneficial to its success across its eight decades of operation, each one spending long periods of time at their respective helms, meaning any executory position at Bradesco is highly coveted. Even with Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi being just the fourth President – a position in which job duties are equivalent to that of other corporations’ Chief Executive Officers – in the ranks of Bradesco, despite being in existence for 62 years at the time of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s Presidential promotion, he’s exhibited leadership at least as good as any of the other three Presidents since Bradesco’s 1943 incorporation.


Further, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is the only Bradesco President to have spend his entire career with the financial institution. Despite only working in one capacity, his career has been far from boring; Mr. Trabuco has hopped around locations, subsidiaries, and ranks of employment, including winning innumerable awards, honors, and accolades.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was born in Marília, São Paulo, Brazil in 1951. Mr. Trabuco got done with secondary school at a young age, an honor in itself, something none of his peers were able to accomplish. Striving to keep his early streak of accomplishment momentously rolling forwards, the teenaged Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi enrolled in the University of São Paulo. After a few years at USP, he fruitfully completed – more like demolished – a postsecondary-level degree from the Faculty of Philosophy, Letters, and Human Sciences.

Before turning 18, at an age where most others are still fiddling around in high school – or even four-year colleges, if they’ve performed outstandingly well – the young Mr. Trabuco went to the nearby School of Sociology and Politics of São Paulo. The future financial sector executive would soon complete that degree, as well, a graduate certificate in Socio-Psychology.

After earning multiple degrees at universities 270-plus miles away from home, as a teenager, to boot, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi found employment at Banco Bradesco’s original branch in Marília, coincidentally sharing hometowns with 18-year-old Luiz, in 1969. Shortly after, he was invited to join Bradesco’s metropolitan-based headquarters, bouncing around various departments and roles before settling in the marketing department as its Director in 1984. Trabuco was also President of both Bradesco’s insurance and pension subsidiaries, in 1998 and 2003, respectively.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi received consecutive awards in 2006 and 2007 for the Insurance Personality of the Year, given to the top performers in the field in Brazil. Mr. Trabuco was also named Entrepreneur of the Year in Finance by Isto É Dinheiro in 2015, following his advocation of and leadership in the purchase of HSBC Brazil.

Jason Hope sees possibilities for reducing social problems through technology

Since the late 1980s, when crime rates peaked in urban locations across the country, those same crime rates have been steadily falling, all the way to the present. This has been especially apparent across some of the most serious types of crime, including burglary, larceny and homicide. While many sociologists debate the cause of this dramatic decline in criminal activity since the late 1980s, increasingly, one of the most important explanations is being viewed as the role that technology has played in both reducing the impulse to commit criminal activity as well as reducing the number of soft targets for criminals to avail themselves of.

Jason Hope is one of the nation’s leading tech entrepreneurs. After having founded dozens of successful startups, including Jawa, the first premium mobile content streaming provider in the country, he has gone on to start a career as a tech journalist and blogger, talking about the most pressing issues in the technological space.

One of the areas that Hope sees the Internet of Things dramatically changing is the overall ability of criminals to commit crime and their desire to live a criminal lifestyle. Hope points to evidence that the increased availability of things like video games, content on demand and the ability to stay in constant touch with friends and family have materially contributed to the reduction in criminals’ tendency towards anti-social behavior.

At the same time, things like smart car alarms, 24/7 video surveillance and high-tech solutions like local gunshot detectors have dramatically increased the difficulty that criminals have in getting away with anti-social acts. Hope believes the Internet of Things will continue to make the commission of criminal acts vastly more difficult while, at the same time, giving criminals many activities with which to occupy their time.

Hope sees a future in which things like the universal basic income, paid for by the vast increases in efficiency and cost reductions seen from the implementation of technologies like self-driving vehicles, will be able to provide the former criminal class with the ability to live a life of leisure, engrossing themselves in video games and other activities that, while, perhaps, not exactly pro-social, are much less costly to society as a whole.

Why Mikhail Blagosklonny Made Oncotarget

As a successful oncologist, it is strange to think about the fact that Mikhail Blagosklonny was doing what he could to make even more people happy with their business. He wanted to make sure that they were getting what they could out of different situations and that doctors were going to be able to use all of the treatment options possible to make their practice the best that it could be. He also realized that things were not always easy for those who were in medicine and he wanted to be able to do something to remedy that no matter what was happening in the medical field or what type of issues people were having with the medicine that they were dealing with.All of the things that Mikhail Blagosklonny did were to help patients. Even when he is not directly helping patients, he is still trying to help them even through things like the peer review publication.

He wants to see patients have a chance at success and also wants to see them get better no matter which doctor they see or who they go to for their treatment. He believes that all cancer patients need a chance at survival.The way that things were before Oncotarget were not conducive to helping patients. Mikhail Blagosklonny did not know that things would get better, but he did know that the publication could get better if he was doing what he could to help other people. He wanted to ensure that he could show cancer patients that things would be better and that they would be able to experience more out of the options that they had in different situations. They didn’t have to rely on treatment from just one doctor now that oncologists had Oncotarget.The point of the publication was to bring many different doctors together. There, they can learn more about cancer what other doctors are using and how these treatments are working for the patients.

They can learn about the things that are making things better for them and they can find out what is going to make a difference in the world of cancer treatment. They can even connect with other doctors who are trying to find similar treatment options for all of their patients. It is what has made things easier for them and has given them a chance to experience so much more than what they could in different situations.Now that the publication has become more popular and Mikhail Blagosklonny has chosen to add different types of doctors to it, they are finding that more treatment options are available for the doctors who are using these things and it is what has made things better. They have been doing things like figuring out what will make the businesses better and how Mikhail Blagosklonny can use things like anti-aging treatments to help the patients have a better experience and not lose as much of their immunity as they would if they did not have the chance to do it.
