The center of Bradesco, Brazil’s second-largest private bank, is endlessly operating. Spartan-styled low-rise structures encapsulate processors with data from 28 million different clients and 4.5 million businesses. There are important units like computers and human resources. In this step of critical episodes of financial and banking times, an extra change was recorded in history recently.
Lázaro de Mello Brandão, that continued holding the chairing the organ for as long as 1990, amazed his co-workers and bestowed a note of resignation. At 91 years of age, after 75 years in the bank and 27 years in the Council, Brandão, an example of the most influential bankers in Brazil and confidant to numerous presidents of the Republic, inquired for the reservation of his duties according to folha.uol.com.br. His period at the bank, he reveals, has grown to a conclusion. He also composed a conventional retirement message, in which he praised customers, stockholders and personnel and, of course, his family.
The development was expected. Trabuco is suspected to fulfill both positions as CEO and chairman very soon. Partner of a substantial amount of assets and about 1% of the bank’s divisions, a lot whose worth is valued at around R $ 200 million, Brandão could conclusively appreciate retirement. However, dropping business is not a hypothesis for him, as he’ll remain and appear at his profession before seven o’clock in the morning, as he has done regularly since 1942.
It will be up to Trabuco to be the director of this development. He should not continue as much as Brandão in the chairmanship of the Council. One of the differences predicted in its program is the founding of an age deadline for the continuity of the managers. He would not eliminate the chance that in the eventuality this will happen, he noted. With 66 years freshly finished, its voyage may have nearly a decade if it is deserving of the notion of confirming a 75-year-old limit. Enough time, nevertheless, for him to lead the developments.
Certified in Philosophy from USP and a post-grad in Socio-Psychology, Trabuco is a sophisticated, traditional man. Thus, it is permissible to excerpt “The Leopard”, a classic of the Italian author Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa (1896 – 1957). In the novel, Lampedusa details the legislative execution of a Sicilian noble throughout the Italian union, at the conclusion of Century XIX. The noble, called Leopard, had the responsibility of bartering the reforms. And it is one of the most excerpted quotes in the story: “Things have to change to remain the same.” Never has anything more suitable been able to explain the test to Bradesco. Presently, in this current period, the bank is under the charge of Luiz Carlos Trabuco being the CEO.
