Bradesco Scouting For A Chief Executive Officer

According to an article published by Bloomberg on October 11, Banco Bradesco SA—the second largest private bank in Brazil—is searching for a new chief executive officer. The new CEO, just like the previous ones, will be the overall head of the bank whose assets are currently slightly short of $420 billion. The bank has over five thousand branches with over 100 thousand employees dedicated to serving the bank’s clients. Owing to the importance of the presidency office to the overall functioning of the Osasco based bank, Bradesco will not take any chances that might compromise the position of the lender in Brazil’s financial sector. The bank is currently taking its time to scout for the most suitable candidate to replace the outgoing CEO, Luiz Carlos Trabuco, who is rightfully in office until March next year.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco has been with Banco Bradesco for 48 years. The news that Bradesco was prospecting for a new chief executive officer surprised many who have known him as one of the faces of the institution; however, they were delighted to realize that Trabuco is not yet done with Bradesco as he had just begun a new assignment as the chairman of the board of directors representing Fundação Bradesco, the controlling shareholder of Bradesco. Trabuco will discharge the duties of both posts until next year when his successor will assume office.

Banco Bradesco’s culture of appointing CEOs and other leaders from within the bank is well known. In fact, Trabuco stressed the same in the October 11 news event that marked the resignation of the then chairman, Lazaro de Mello Brandao. The comment from Trabuco prompted analysts to take a keen look at Bradesco’s staff, and luckily seven of them are thought to be in the line to succeed Trabuco. The seven include Mauricio Machado de Minas, Alexandre da Silva Gluher, Domingos Figueiredo Abreu, Josué Augusto Pancini, Marcelo de Araujo Noronha, Octavio de Lazari, and André Rodrigues Cano.


Lazaro de Mello Brandao

According to Bloomberg, the 91-year-old (before his resignation) was among the world’s oldest serving bank chairmen. Brandao resigned after a 74-year-career with the bank. The length of Brandao’s career corresponds to the numbers of years that Bradesco has served Brazilians. Brandao joined the bank the same year that Amado Aguiar founded the bank—1943.

As expected, Brandao was appointed to discharge the duties of a clerk. Even with incomplete fundamental studies, Brandao was not cowed as he dedicated his energy and time to serving Bradesco. He amassed skills and expertise along the way that propelled him through the ranks of the bank until his appointment in 1981 as the CEO and chairman ten years later. Brandao held the presidency of the bank until his resignation in 1999. However, he continued as the chairman of the bank until last month.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco

Brandao left the baton of the chairmanship to Trabuco; a man who he shares a lot of similarities. Trabuco, just like Brandao, joined Bradesco as a clerk. His performance got the attention of his superiors who handed him his first promotion 15 years after he first started working at the bank in 1969. Trabuco was appointed as the marketing director. For the many years that followed, Trabuco served the bank in different capacities until he was named the president of the institution in 2009 and the subsequent appointment as the chairman of the bank.

However, unlike Brandao who did not complete his fundamental studies, Trabuco attended the University of São Paulo where he studied philosophy. He later joined the Fundação School of Sociology and Politics where he pursued Socio-Psychology.

The American Institute of Architects, an organization with a vision for a better future

The American Institute of Architects, AIA, is an organization of professional architects in America that was founded in 1857. The AIA was set up to support the architects’ profession around the country. With its headquarters in Washington, D.C., the AIA works with other stakeholders in the construction industry for coordination purposes. The organization consists of 300 local chapters and around 200 employees. Every year the AIA sponsors educational seminars to assist architects in maintaining their licenses. By conducting market research studies, the AIA advice architects on any economic factors that may affect their profession. They are also responsible for setting industry standards that affect the operations of their members.

Robert Ivy is the CEO of AIA. He studied his undergraduate in English at the University of the South. He later received a Master of Architecture from the University of Tulane. His main role is to expand the architectural awareness to ensure the future of the practice is maintained. During the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting that was held in 2012, Robert committed to AIA improving the health care system by offering research grants, community planning programs, and digital programs for ten years. Before joining AIA, Robert worked for McGraw-Hill as the vice president and editorial director. While he was the editor-in-chief at Architectural Record, the magazine received various awards which included 26 Jesse H. Neal Awards. Robert also served as a spokesman for important architectural issues that were aimed at building the environment. He is also a member of the International Circle of Architecture Critics.

At AIA, Robert Ivy ensures the core values of the company are maintained. The company believes that human dignity ought to be maintained in all aspects of business, employment, and civic transactions. AIA ensures that all architects adopt a tolerance to the guidelines that are set regarding the way they treat customers and conduct their business. The organization believes that communities are strengthened by the infrastructural projects set out by architects. Public buildings have been left by the government to deteriorate, thus reducing the safety and quality of life of the communities. It is up to architects to guide policymakers in making informed decisions on reinvesting in the communities.

AIA continues to advocate for policies that are aimed at reducing the damaging effects to the atmosphere. They do so by encouraging the preservation and design of high-quality buildings. These buildings are designed in a way that reduces their carbon footprint which is good for the environment, at the same time, they generate income to the society and contribute to the GDP of the country.
