He was promoted to become the president in 2009, and the board of directors at Bradesco Bank chose him because of his contributions to the company and his impressive background. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi had to do drastic measures that would ensure that Bradesco Bank would be back on track. He is facing the challenge to transform the company as the leading bank in the country, a recognition that is lost after the merger of Banco Itau and Unibanco in 2009 which paved the way for the creation of the Itau Unibanco according to istoedinheiro.com.br. As the new president, he looked for several ideas on how he could increase the assets and the investors working with Bradesco Bank.
One day, he had the idea to acquire the largest financial institutions in the country. He browsed all of the companies one after another, and the company that appealed to him the most was HSBC Brazil according to folha.uol.com.br. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi started to speak with the executives working with HSBC Brazil, and he presented his contract with them, persuading the executives to join Bradesco Bank. However, the executives at HSBC Brazil made it tough for the president of Bradesco Bank to get their approval. The talks lasted for months, and the contract was revised several times. In 2015, both parties finally agreed to sign the $5.2 billion deal, and it was considered as a victory for Bradesco Bank.
Today, Bradesco Bank enjoys a higher value at the stock market, and more investors are developing an interest to work with the company. Thanks to the brilliant plans of the former president of Bradesco Bank.
