Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has found himself in a unique position. Working as CEO of Banco Bradesco SA, and now also taking on the role of chairman after the previous one, Lazaro de Mello Brandao had made the decision to step down. The bank plans to elect a new CEO in March, but, until that time, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will be taking on both roles.
Brandao’s Retirement Leaves A Gap In Leadership That The Bank’s Executives Are Racing To Fill
Among the oldest serving bank chairmen globally, at 91, Brandao’s decision to retire comes as no surprise. Starting out as a clerk during the second world war, and eventually working his way up to CEO, and then to chairman over 25 years ago; one of only two chairmen that the bank has ever had. However, with him stepping down, and the current CEO taking on his role, a succession race was inevitable, and a number of executives at the company are now gunning for the position.
Banco Bradesco may never be the same without Brandao, but we’re excited to see which direction it will take after this shakeup in leadership. While it was Brandao’s own choice to resign, he has also taken the decision to remain in charge of a number of the bank’s holding companies. So while his presence is being reduced, he will by no means be simply fading away into obscurity.
Promotion From Within
Brandao held a strong belief that executives should be promoted from within, rather than being brought on from a pool of outside talent. This is a philosophy which Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi shares and the bank is set to continue along this path, with a new Chief Executive Officer being chosen from among its highest-ranking executives.

When it’s finally time for Trabuco to fully take on the role of chairman, a successor will need to be chosen for the role of CEO. There are a total of seven possible candidates, each of which brings their own unique talent to the company, and has contributed heavily to the success of the company. Regardless of who claims the position, Trabuco’s legacy will be hard to live up to.
