An example of good leadership is not in the books that you get from libraries or schools that don’t offer reality-based ideas that are applicable as practical world solutions. You may be able to read a lot about people in the books on how they are able to improve their company, grow their brand and improve the lives of their clients. But none of them could probably be as sustainable and consistent as the kind of example set by Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi.
There are many business solutions, practical ideas and intuitive heuristics that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is able to share to the world and to the operations of its company, but one of the recently impactful ideas and tips he’s been able to showcase is about the need for Brazil to restructure its financing system, especially in public-private projects.
Being the Chairman of the Bradesco Board, Mr. Cappi understands the need and power of change to improve the operations of a company, as well as the healthy growth of the company. In his analysis, he believes that the policies right now on subsidies on government projects should be needing an overhaul. The slow development that we have as a country could be because of a weak capital market that is from weak systems and financing infrastructure systems that are not conducive to growth.

That is why Mr. Cappi sees it his duty to improve the capital market. This is the reason that he shared at the Forum Estadao convention that he attended that the fundamental change that Brazil needs is going to be directing towards the acceptance of the public that their projects should be fully privatized. Private investments are getting better and are more competent in projects and that’s why the government sector today should accept such change.
One of the people today that accept such thinking process is Ms. Elena Landau, the Former Executive Director at BNDES. She believes that the kind of change that the country needs is only in accordance to making it into a private project system, so that it is able to offer the kind of service that is competent and high-quality.
Right now what stands in the way, according to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi and Elena Landau, is the fact that projects involving the state are considered sacred or what is called “Holy Cow”. They believe that the story of the sacred cow should now be over. The people should now accept that the economy is getting more sophisticated and getting more demanding according to oglobo.globo.com. Brazil has to adapt to such changes or it risks losing opportunities that end up wonderful and fantastic and beneficial to its people.
Right now, what gives the power of an economy is considered by Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi to be in the hands of the enthusiasm of the privatized companies. Unfortunately, there’s no political will in Brazil to make sure that this happens. There is no leadership that can instill these kinds of changes to make sure that the vision of better Brazil is delivered.
Luiz Carlos Trabuco is an alumnus of University of Sao Paolo. He started in Bradesco as clerk. Because of his hard work and dedication, he holds different executive positions in the bank. Now he will retire as the CEO of the bank.
