Bradesco is one of the top banks in the world. Even though Brazil has economic recovery on its mind, Brazilian banks are putting more profit on their bottom lines. The banks aren’t using home or car loans interest to make millions. A lot of Bradesco’s profits come from investments and their insurance division, Banco Seguros. The man responsible for the profitability of Seguros is fifty-four-year-old Octavio Lazari Jr. He is the current president of Bradesco’s insurance and the next CEO of the bank if the shareholders vote him for him at the March 12th shareholders meeting. The current CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco is stepping down because, at 67-years-old, he is past the CEO age cap of 65.
Trabuco is not leaving the bank. He is the new Chairman of the Board of Bradesco. He replaces Lázaro de Mello Brandão, the man who took founder’s Amador Aguiar place as Chairman. Mr. Trabuco is only the third chairman in the bank’s 75-year-old history. Amador Aguiar and Lázaro de Mello Brandão were both instrumental in bringing Trabuco up through the banking ranks. Aguiar and Brandão gave Trabuco a job as a trainee in 1969 even though he didn’t have a banking background or a degree in economics or finance. Trabuco was a people’s person with degrees in philosophy and psychology, so he did have some banking personality traits. He just wasn’t a typical accounting or finance banking trainee. But Trabuco was a fast learner. He was a director of the bank during the tumultuous 1970s and a vice-president in the 1980s. He took over as president of the bank at the end of 2009 after six successful years as the president of Seguros.

According to bank memo written by Núcleo Cidade de Deus on February 5, 2018, four other CEO candidates, Alexandre da Silva Glüher, Josué Augusto Pancini, Domingos Figueiredo de Abreu, and Maurício Machado de Minas are in line to become members of the board of directors if the shareholders approve their nominations and elect them as board members. Most of Trabuco’s executive team will reap the rewards of new positions or extra responsibility when Lazari takes over in March. Brandão will still have a desk, and he will play a part in the bank’s new executive structure. But he is officially off the executive team and the board. But at 91, he is still the oldest bank executive in the history of Brazilian banking.
Bradesco’s board thinks Lazari background and his age will help the bank maintain its position in the international banking world. In another February 5, 2018 memo, Núcleo Cidade de Deus gives stockholders a chance to review Lazari’s impressive education credits as well as his successful banking positions. Lazari has more than 40 years of service with Bradesco and his track record for producing profit for the bank is well-known. Lazari is a graduate of the College of Economics and Administration in Osasco. He also studied Financial Strategies and Marketing at Fundação Instituto de Administração.
Bradesco has momentum behind them after a successful 2017. Trabuco Bradesco and the executive team gave the bank the direction to focus on the IT part of banking, and that is changing the direction of banking in Brazil. IT Vice-President Maurício Machado de Minas put the bank in a position to take advantage of the Brazilian mobile phone craze. Brazilian across the country are using their mobile devices to bank, and Trabuco and Maurício Machado de Minas are responsible for putting new data-based banking programs in place.

SahmAdrangi is the founder and chief investment officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC. It was in April 2009 that he founded this investment company which is located in New York City. One of his bigger transactions occurred in 2016 when he raised $100 million from other investors. The money was used to bet against one single stock, as his research led him to believe it would fall and by shorting the stock he could make back a lot of money.
Usually hedge fund managers raise money in order to invest in a company or sector they expect to experience growth. The capital can be raised to invest in distressed companies that are on the verge of a comeback or it could be invested in other asset classes such as residential mortgage-backed securities. Sahm Adrangi, though, is flipping this on its head by shorting a company he sees as losing a significant amount of money per share.
When writing about raising this capital, Sahm said that because he was able to swiftly raise the $100 million he knew that his idea had been seized upon by others in the alternative investments community. He hasn’t publically revealed the name of the company, only that it is worth more than $10 billion. Along with one of his analysts at Kerrisdale, Shane Wilson, he put together a presentation including a video, a report, and a website which is being used to show other investors why he is right about this company’s stock.
Adrangi received his bachelor of arts in economics from Yale University. He has worked in the financial industry for about 13 years. He started out his professional career as an analyst for a number of firms including Chanin Capital Partners, Deutsche Bank, and Longacre Fund Management LLC.
Under Sahm’s management, Kerrisdale now has about $150 million in assets under management. He is well-known for making money by shorting stocks. He was one of the first investors to see that several Chinese companies were actually fraudulent in nature. He shorted a number of these companies in 2010 and 2011 from which Kerrisdale made a significant amount of money.
Having a good reputation goes a long way in business. It ensures that the business continually attracts new customers while also retaining the old ones. As such, many businesses attempt to cultivate positive reputations. Unfortunately, however, this is a process that is easier said than done and many of those who try often fail quite miserably. That said, one business that has made this process seem simple is Richard Mishaan Design. The interior design outfit is known as the go-to firm when one wants luxurious and maximalist designs. The firm is run by famed Colombian-American interior designer, Richard Mishaan.
Richard Mishaan Design offers a quality that is often lacking in most other firm’s designs: uniqueness. There are no two projects completed by Richard Mishaan Design that look the same. This is largely down to the fact that the firm has perfected the art of mixing elements drawn from different eras and styles. Consequently, it is not uncommon to see combinations of modern and classical pieces on some of the firm’s projects. However, that is not to say that the creations of Richard Mishaan Design are overwhelming to the eye: far from it.
Even with the mixing of different elements, Mishaan ensures that only a few pieces do the talking while the others only serve a complementary role.The projects completed by Richard Mishaan Design also stand out because the firm actively incorporates the input of their clients in the final design. In addition to making the designs more unique, this also makes them more comfortable and acceptable to the clients.Consequently, while it is difficult to associate Richard Mishaan Design with a particular design style, one cannot deny its excellent service delivery. It is for this reason that Richard Mishaan has consistently been included in the A-List for Elle Décor.

The role of Chief Executive Officer is perhaps the most powerful position that a person can hold in American business. Those who fulfill that role understand that their decisions dictate whether a company will prosper or perish. The position of CEO honorable one not because of the salary, but because of the responsibility that they willingly and capably shoulder. It is an honorable position because it requires a near superhuman level of foresight, adaptability, composure, wisdom, and leadership.
No man is more deserving of this honor than Sheldon Lavin, the CEO of OSI Group. When he financed a small facility in West Chicago named Otto & Sons, he had no prior experience in the meat processing industry. However, he had owned his own financial consultation firm, and it was this experience that proved the most pivotal. Over the next four decades, Sheldon and his associates managed to transform Otto & Sons into the multi national food supply juggernaut that it is today. His experience as a business owner gave him a competitive edge, as he understood the importance of maintaining workplace moral. The meat processing industry was notoriously apathetic about the well being of it’s workforce, and Mr. Lavin able to dominate the industry by carefully and deliberately cultivating a family-like company culture that instilled loyalty in his workforce. By showing compassion for the people that work for him, he inspires his employees to go above and beyond the call of duty. A workforce that is both loyal and motivated is a workforce that is unstoppable, which is why Mr. Sheldon Lavin’s success should come as no surprise. He is the personification of everything that a CEO is supposed to be: a leader and a visionary that shows compassion for his workforce.
