It is clear that the success of the Insurance industry and the Banking sector are tied to the performance of the economy. Mr. Trabuco is upbeat about the trends.
Mr. Trabuco has been awarded severally in various categories. Some of the highlights in the Insurance industry include the award for Insurance Personality of the Year. Luiz Carlos Trabuco was also awarded the entrepreneur of the year in 2015. He ingeniously led Bradesco to purchase HSBC, a move that shot the group back to its status as one of the best banks in Brazil. He is now preparing to hand over the presidency of the bank.
A Long-Standing Career
Mr. Carlos Trabuco Cappi has worked with Bradesco for the longest period among the staff of the bank. With over 38 years serving in various capacities, culminating in the presidency of the bank, Mr. Trabuco Cappi acquired the skills he needed to choose the best for the bank. He also enriched the insurance wing with the long-standing banking experience. He is known to be a strong advocate for the selling of insurance policies via brokers according to istoedinheiro.com.br.
Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi believes that the state needs insurance more than anything in its social welfare pursuits. He points out that insurance is an important tool in the maintenance of social welfare. He further states that since Brazil is evolving fast, the insurance sector is experiencing the urgency to expand. It had been a low moment for the Bradesco investors because prior to Mr. Trabuco’s entry, Bradesco had just lost the pride of being the leading bank to its main rival Itau Unibanco. Shortly after his appointment to the position, Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was interviewed and asked what his opinion was regarding losing out to Itau, in terms of leadership in the banking sector. Mr. Trabuco indicated that it was not his priority to lead other banks; rather he thought that providing the best service for customers as the core agenda. Indeed, Mr. Trabuco embarked on a customer service campaign that helped to build trust among the existing customers and its prospective clients. Mr. Trabuco managed to increase the number of the bank’s customers and even recorded the highest recruitment rate just after a few months. There was a point when Bradesco was recruiting up to 3500 customers per day. With that number of accounts being opened every day, the bank was set to become greater. Mr. Trabuco also helped to build strong links between the bank and the media.
It has come to a point that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has to pave way for a new President. Mr. Trabuco’s term was extended by two years from 65 to 67 two years ago. Mr. Octavio De Lazari has been chosen to succeed Mr. Trabuco at the helm. Mr. Octavio is also an experienced hand in the bank.
A journey of a thousand miles commences with a single step and every fruitful tree grew from a seed. Everything on the face of the earth requires time to pass over it so as to bring forth their full potential. Mr. Greg Aziz who is the Chairman, the President and the CEO of the National Steel Car Company in Hamilton, which is among the leading companies globally in railroad freight car manufacturing, has his own giants he has fought in his journey to success.

The state of politics in America is abysmal thanks to the disastrous 2010 Supreme Court decision, Citizens United vs. FEC. Since then, we have seen more dark money pour into American politics than ever before. That’s thanks to corporate super PACs funding their own interests and promising a green-lined pocket to any politician that is willing to play ball.
End Citizens United is a grassroots political action committee that is dedicated to ending the careers of politicians who choose to support big moneyed interests over those they are elected to support. The Big Money 20 is a hit list of Republican politicians that have knowingly accepted large corporate PAC donations and have knowingly supported legislation to allow even more corporate donations.
One of the prime targets on the list is Senator Ted Cruz from Texas, who accepted more than $3 million in outside spending during his election bid of 2012. Cruz even went so far as to introduce a new bill that would allow corporate interests and mega-donors to contribute an unlimited amount of money directly to candidates seeking re-election. He’s been very brazen in how much he believes that money should equal speech and he believes any effort at campaign finance reform is an effort to silence citizens.
That’s why End Citizens United has endorsed Beto O’Rourke, who is Cruz’s Democratic challenger in the 2018 elections. Many people have downplayed O’Rourke’s chances of unseating Cruz since Texas hasn’t sent a Democrat to one of its Senate seats since 1988. However, O’Rourke’s commitment to campaign finance reform and his refusal to accept corporate money has made him a favorite with Texans who are tired of the same Republican representation they’ve had for years.
In fact, there’s at least one Democrat challenging a Republican in all 36 congressional races during this year’s midterm elections. Most of those challenges will be an uphill battle, but with help from grassroots organizations like End Citizens United, it’s possible for the people to take Texas back from those who think more money = more speech. End Citizens United was founded in 2015 and is hoping to raise more than $35 million dollars during the 2018 midterm elections to support candidates like O’Rourke.
It’s entirely possible to change the way politicians are funded, but the first step is voting for those politicians who support campaign finance reform and more transparency in election funding. End Citizens United continues to endorse Democratic candidates that refuse to accept donations from corporate PACs and promotes the idea that every single citizen’s voice matters, no matter how much money you have. The average donation to the organization during the 2016 election was just $14. E Pluribus Unum, from many one. That’s the way America should be and that’s what End Citizens United hopes to achieve.
