Guilherme Paulus has had an exceptional and enviable career. It started with him having his degree in Business Administration and joining Casa Faro Turismo in 1971. While working, his experience with a small group of French tourists would create a spark that Guilherme would turn into a raging fire. The French tourists were bored with not knowing what to do, Guilherme would step in and suggest a way to spend their vacation. His service was so well received that at the time of leaving, the tourists had already booked their next trip with him. View Guilherme Paulus profile at Forbes.
This ignited the drive in him which would end up with him owning what is now the largest tour operator in Latin America – CVC. Founded in 1972, Guilherme Paulus started CVC with a partner, a Brazilian politician who would eventually take his leave from the partnership.
Guilherme, alone at the helm of CVC would take the predicament as an opportunity and spend the next forty years taking CVC to unimaginable highs.
In 2009, Guilherme would part with 63.6% of CVC in a sale to global private equity company – Carlyle Group. The sale would net Guilherme Paulus $420 million, yet allow him to stay on as the chairman of CVC. He would demonstrate his ability to turn any situation into a positive when he took control of struggling aviator – WebJet, which only had a fleet size of one aeroplane and turned it into the 3rd largest domestic aviation company in Brazil, with a fleet size of 20 aeroplanes at the time of its sale to Gol.
His mind has always been active, in spite of CVC’s incredible growth, Guilherme Paulus continued to look into what his beloved country required as the times changed. He noticed how the tourism sector in Brazil needed a boost and founded the GJP Group of Hotels and Resorts which now owns sought after tourist spots across the nation and employs upwards of 2,000 people. With his involvement in the tourism sector, he quickly realized that Brazil was changing, and it’s people were demanding a higher standard of living. It was no longer a case of necessities. This realization made GJP start the construction wing of the company, aimed at building condominiums and villas, something that was being demanded by the people of his country.
His career has seen him win countless awards and honors, including a place in the Brazilian Board of Tourism, an arm of the government to which he was invited by the President, recognizing that Guilherme Paulus was the perfect expert on tourism.
He started his career with Bradesco in his teen years. He was 17 when he was employed at one of Bradesco’s groups. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is an enigma in his own right. He worked in various positions at Bradesco and became the president of the bank in 2009. Prior to his appointment as the president of Bradesco, Mr. Luiz was the president of Bradesco Seguros. It seems that Bradesco Seguros Presidency is a preparatory position for the bank’s presidents.
Like Mr. Trabuco, Mr. Octavio de Lazari who is slated to take over the leadership mantle from Mr. Trabuco is also the current president of Bradesco Seguros. Trabuco is about to leave the helm of the bank. He will be remembered for building the bank to the much-respected position it holds now. Bradesco is the second largest bank in Brazil currently. Here is a bit of Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s career path to the helm of Bradesco. He served as the MD of Fundacao Bradesco, a position he still holds today. He was also the CEO of Banco Bradesco. He served as the CEO of Bradesco Seguros from 2003 to 2009. He was the CEO of Bradesco Vida E Providencia among other positions. He is a graduate of philosophy from the University of Sao Paulo among other educational qualifications he holds.
The Handover Calendar
The selection of Octavio de Lazari was a competitive process that was overseen by the Selection Committee of the bank. It was first made public in early February. According to Mr. Trabuco, in one of his responses in an interview, the succession process at Bradesco is a well thought out an planned event. Mr. Octavio was selected in a process that saw the bank’s various other vice presidents pushed aside to allow for the President of Bradesco Seguros to carry the day. Octavio beat the likes of Cidade de Deus, Alexandre Gluher, Josue Pancini, Marcelo Noronha and Andre Cano. In the meantime, Trabuco will still serve as the chairman of the board of directors of the bank until the first Ordinary Meeting has been held on 12th of March.
About Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi
Mr. Trabuco is both a sociologist and a philosopher. He attended the University of Sao Paulo for his philosophy degree, after which he studied socio-psychology at Fundacao University. While at the helm of Bradesco, Mr. Trabuso will be remembered to have turned the bank’s fortunes around through his socio-philosophical techniques. For instance, he emphasized the need for enhanced communication at the bank. While the move could not be immediately or directly linked with the turnover of the bank, soon the bank began to grow faster than anyone anticipated. He is credited for having lifted the bank to its second largest position in Brazil now. In fact, Bradesco registered some of the fastest growth rates in the banking sector in the region. It is now time to pave way for one Octavio de Lazari to steer the big ship that Trabuco made Bradesco be. Luiz Carlos Trabuco was at first meant to come to the end of his term two years ago. However, the management extended the retirement age from 65 to 67 years in the latter part of 2016.
