Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi And His Decades Of Service At Bradesco

Posted by eastcoop on

The head office of Bradesco that is located in Osasco’s Cidade de Deus within the Sao Paulo’s metropolitan area, is the usual venue where Bradesco conducts its replacement procedures in the hierarchy of ranks within the organization. Up to the present times, the names of those who are being chosen for the position of President for Bradesco Bank normally do not see the light of day.

And this is quite true with Marcio Cypriano whose name was rarely pointed out and who preceded Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi as Bradesco Bank’s president. The case is similar with Lazaro Brandao who succeeded Amado Aguiar in 1991. Brandao was considered as the second best that time and no one expected he would be the next Chairman of the Board in 1981.

But in Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s case the winds seems to have changed. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi started out as a teller with the Marilia Branch of Bradesco Bank. He faithfully and diligently did his duties until such time that he was selected and appointed as the President of the Bradesco Seguros Group that had an insurance company subsidiary which was likewise headed by him. The insurance segment of Bradesco was regarded as the largest insurer in Brazil in 2003.

The success of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi with the Bradesco Seguros Group did not go unnoticed and his name was often mentioned whenever the topic about Marciano Cypriano’s replacement is being discussed according to valor.com.br. He was given the heads up about the Presidency of Bradesco Bank when Cypriano took over the helm, although at that time he was still young at the age of 47 for the organization to actually appoint him.

When Marcio Cypriano reached the age of 65, as per the Bradesco organization’s employment stipulation, he doesn’t have the authority anymore to administer executive duties. And some changes were being deliberated on so he could still remain the president of Bradesco Bank. However, with the new challenges the organization is facing, the board of directors made the final decision to have a new president. And Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was chosen for the role as chairman, but the formality of his ascension will have to wait until the general assembly of the organization which will still happen in March 2009.

At that time Itau Unibanco was formed through the merger of Banco Itau and Unibanco. The merger affected the rank of Bradesco Bank in the private financial segment of the country since Itau Unibanco is now in the lead, and also besting Banco do Brasil, which was unheard of in the past years of the country’s banking industry.

Left with minimal alternatives, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi maintained the banks exemplary banking services for the time being, while meticulously planning to regain its lead in the private banking sector of Brazil. As it happened, Bradesco acquired HSBC Brazil to get ahead of its competitors. With the combined assets of Bradesco and HSBC Brazil, Bradesco was able to attain and even surpass its former ranking within the banking sector of Brazil. All thanks to the daring move of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi.

Aloha Construction: Winner of the 2017 Torch Award

Posted by eastcoop on

One of the very best attributes for any business to have is good ethics. Good ethics can help you succeed as well as help to get you farther in life. Good ethics should be practiced no matter the person and no matter the place. The way you conduct yourself is definitely worth its weight in gold. When it comes to good ethics, the general-contracting community awards its best pick with the prestigious Torch Award. This specific award has been around since 1996 and many companies have won it. For 2017, the undisputed champ of the year was Illinois’ Aloha Construction.

Aloha Construction, an Illinois-based general contractor, was presented with this award by the Better Business Bureau because it displayed all of the award’s criteria. This general contractor has been climbing the ranks since its birth in 2008, and it hasn’t slowed-down at all. Its coverage area is extremely large as it provides home-improvement services for the entire state of Illinois. That’s right! On top of that, this general contractor serves the Southern Wisconsin region. Aloha Construction has two locations, including Lake Zurich and Bloomington. Yes, both geographical locations are in the state of Illinois as it serves the municipalities of:

  • Lake Zurich
  • Round Lake
  • Washington
  • Round Lake Beach
  • Peoria
  • Vernon Hills
  • Hoffman Estates
  • Chicago
  • Morton
  • Libertyville
  • Grayslake
  • Lake Villa
  • And many other places


Another important component for winning the Torch Award is that a company must be involved with its community. Aloha Construction is more than the average general contractor thanks to its philanthropic ways and that truly speaks volumes.

Ricardo Tosto, One Of The Best Brazilian Attorneys In Brazil

Posted by eastcoop on

The only way to sum it up is to tell the straight truth: Ricardo Tosto as one of the best attorneys and the country of Brazil, pure and simple. This is according to the recommendation of the Chambers Latin America Guide of 2018. The law firm of Ricardo Tosto received high marks for their dispute resolution: litigation division, watch currently employs 91 lawyers and 15 partners.

Ricardo Tosto’s law firm was lauded for effective assisting clients in a number of areas, including the following: energy, infrastructure and banking within all forms of litigation.

They also received high marks for their client satisfaction rate. They go the extra mile for their clients in many different ways, including legal knowledge, commitment to processes, and careful monitoring of cases.

When it comes to attention to cases, the best way to describe their style would be of “proactive.” When a problem arises in one of their representations, their skilled and trained attorneys immediately try to find solutions for the issue. This would also include responding to any questions the client might have as quickly as possible.

Ricardo Tosto’s firm, which is called Leite, Tosto, and Barros, was also prized for their legal knowledge. Indeed, one company referred to them as “first on the litigation list” because they are able to appropriately strategize and give this company the legal tools they need to be successful.

Legal noise was also saying as a strength from this law group. The firm of Leite, Tosto, and Barros has become extremely skilled in the field of mass litigation, a common legal strategy in Brazil. This is particularly noteworthy considering that many legal firms in Brazil have abandoned the practice altogether. They have also developed a solid fiscal and labor action as a result of being so stellar in this area. There is no question that we can expect continued good things from the firm of Leite, Tosto, and Barros in the future.

Posted by eastcoop on


Jeff Yastine is the editor of Total Wealth Insider. He has only worked for Banyan Hill Publishing Company for around two years however he has several decades worth of experience as both a stock market investor and financial journalist. He originally entered the mainstream during his work on the PBS publication The Nightly Business Report from 1994 until 2010.

He has posted a video that went viral where he described an investment that he referred to as Kennedy Accounts a unique way for you to purchase stock in companies. He has also recently posted about investment opportunities in the cybersecurity industry and even on Internet retail giant Amazon and potential competitors of the company.

Last June Amazon purchased Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. At the time Jeff Yastine posted a controversial statement that he believed that the purchase would not work out well for the company. Since then there have been several announcements that individuals have noticed a decline in the quality of Whole Foods. Jeff Yastine leaves that this is just one of the first signs that this partnership will not work out as well as investors had anticipated. Follow Jeff Yastine at stocktwits.com

If you look into recent announcements made by the insiders of the company it does seem that integration between the two corporations is occurring at a pace that is slower than expected. Jeff Yastine believes that the corporate culture is significantly different between the two companies and lead to further difficulties into the future. Amazon typically has a focus on low-cost products whereas Whole Foods has focused on employee happiness and overall customer satisfaction.

Currently, there has only been around a 1% decries in the total cost of goods after the acquisition by Amazon of the grocery store chain. However, since the original announcement of the merger Amazon has experienced around an 18% increase in their stock value. Many of the promises that Amazon has made have yet to be seen implemented. Jeff Yastine believes that Amazon could have made a better deal just acquiring large numbers of real estate in developing their own unique grocery store chain.

Tony Petrello Helps Fund Dallas’ Neurological Research Center For Children

Posted by eastcoop on

Tony Petrello is an American businessman who serves as the current president and CEO of Nabors Industries, a massive off-shore oil and natural gas company based in Houston, TX. Tony Petrello is one of the highest paid CEOs in the world and one of the most generous. Years ago, Tony and his wife Cynthis Petrello have donated $50 million to the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. This donation was to help fund the brand new Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute for children that opened in 2010. The center was one of the first basic research institutes in the world that solely focused on children inflicted with neuropsychiatric and neurological diseases.

The successful opening of the neurological research facility meant a lot to the Petrello family. They have a daughter who was born with a neurological disorder that effected her ability to walk, eat and talk. Anthony Petrello and his wife were completely in shock that there were zero research centers that specialized in childhood neurological diseases. Their donation to the children’s hospital will also help educate and reassure other parents that are going through the same thing, seek proper help and received adequate information for their child in need. The Nabors Industries president actively serves as the director of Texas Children’s Hospital.

When Hurricane Harvey destroyed hundreds of homes in Houston, Dallas and many other areas nearby, the aftermath of the storm had affected thousands of individuals for months. Nabors Industries and other local businesses used their resources to help the survivors of the storm. Nabors’ CEO Tony Petrello had provided his employees paid time off to volunteer to help with relief efforts. He also helped set up the Nabors Disaster Relief Fund that had donations totaling $173,622. Petrello matched the donation total and all of the proceeds went to all of the hands-on relief efforts along the entire Gulf Coast. Nabors Industries also kindly opened its on-site kitchen and provided three hot meals a day to the local community.

Tony Petrello went to Yale University and received his Master of Science degree in Mathematics. When his Yale mentor and friend, Prof. Serge Lang, had passed away in 2005, Petrello created an endowment fund worth $150,000 to honor his memory. He then continued to match donations provided by Yale’s alumni. The entire fund was expected to be awarded as a prize to individuals in the mathematics community.
