Banco Bradesco SA Without Lazaro De Mello Brandao, The Longest-Serving Chairman

Banco Bradesco SA is glaring at a future without Lazaro de Mello Brandao. The retired executive was the chairman of the board of directors of the Osasco-based bank. He had held the position for 25 years, starting in 1991. The 91-year-old Brandao knew Bradesco like the back of his hand having commenced his career at the bank in 1943—the same year that Bradesco was established. Like other professionals starting out their careers, Brandao began his career as an entry-level employee. Brandao then moved up the ranks, being appointed a director in 1963. In 1977, the office of the bank’s vice president fell vacant, and the appointing authority settled on Brandao to be Amado Aguiar’s deputy. Aguiar resigned four years later, and Brandao was appointed as his successor.

Aguiar, Bradesco’s founder, stepped down as president but remained the chair of the board. Aguiar and Brandao worked alongside one another until 1991 when Aguiar passed on. Being next to Aguiar in Bradesco’s leadership hierarchy, Brandao was elected to take over from Aguiar. Brandao was officially the second chairman and the second president of Bradesco. He held both positions until 1999 when he relinquished the presidency to Marcio Cypriano.

Brandao presided over the board of directors while Cypriano focused on the day-to-day running of Bradesco. Under Cypriano’s tenure, Bradesco expanded tremendously acquiring ten smaller banks. Brandao and Cypriano cemented Bradesco’s place in the Brazilian banking sector as the largest private bank. Because of age an age limit policy applicable to the office of the president, Cypriano resigned in 2009. Meanwhile, Brandao continued serving as Bradesco’s chairman as the bank does not impose an age limit policy on this office. Bradesco appointed Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi to take over from Cypriano.

Brandao and Trabuco’s tenure at the helm of Bradesco saw the bank continue its expansion spree. Just a year after taking office, Bradesco acquired Ibi Brazilian and Ibi Mexican. However, the bank’s acquisition of HSBC Brazil is perhaps the most significant inorganic growth strategy overseen by the duo. Bradesco acquired HSBC Holdings Plc.’s retail unit for a whopping $5.2 billion in 2015. The purchase became known as the largest transaction in Brazil in 2015. Isto É Dinheiro Magazine awarded Trabuco the title “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the finance category. In fact, the purchase pushed Bradesco closer to Itaú Unibanco, the largest private bank in Brazil. Itaú Unibanco came to life in 2008 following a merger between Itaú and Unibanco.

Following Brandao’s resignation, Bradesco appointed Trabuco to chair the bank’s board of directors. Trabuco, 66, has been at Bradesco for 48 years, and just like Brandao, he started out as a clerk. He is one of the few longest-serving employees who comprehend Bradesco’s culture to the core. However, Trabuco is approaching 67, and he will need to step down to allow a new CEO to assume office. Trabuco will resign in March.

Trabuco’s resignation is of immense interest to Bradesco and its stakeholders. They are interested to find out who will take the mantle from Trabuco. As the CEO, Trabuco is privy to closely guarded information concerning the appointment of a new CEO. Trabuco hinted to Bradesco’s stakeholders that the bank’s appointing authority would respect Brandao’s wishes. At the helm of Bradesco, Brandao directed that leadership positions at the bank should be awarded to deserving Bradesco’s staff. Although many Bradesco’s staff deserve to succeed Trabuco, only seven of them are in the forefront in the succession talk, according to insiders. They include

• Mauricio Machado de Minas
• Alexandre da Silva Gluher
• Domingos Figueiredo Abreu
• Josué Augusto Pancini
• Marcelo de Araujo Noronha
• Octavio de Lazari
• André Rodrigues Cano

ClassDojo Changes the Classroom Setting

ClassDojo is an app that works with iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire that enhances the communications between teachers, parents and students. It allows real-time classroom monitoring by parents, messaging from teacher to parents and parent to teacher, and sharing by students of their work by photos, messages, and video.

In essence, it brings all of these three parties into the same room in order to form a better system of communication and collaboration. In the morning the teacher can check the parental messenger for any students who will be absent that day due to illness or any other reason. Parents can leave a message for the teacher if their child has any needs for that day. Students can share their latest math problem or project with their parents.

Grades for quizzes and projects are available in real time and schedules and upcoming events are made available digitally. Teachers can give out points for good behavior and take points away if a student misbehaves. By giving a “ping” for “Excellent Attention” or “Good Class Participation” the ping is heard by the other students which prompt students to be more alert and pay attention.

ClassDojo is actively in use in over 180 countries and is translated into more than 35 different languages. In the United States it is being used in 90 percent of the K-8 schools. Teachers rave about it and parents are excited that they can play a very foundational role in helping their children excel in the classroom.

ClassDojo works on the “soft skills’ that are difficult to measure, such as focus, empathy, and perseverance. A student’s will to learn and drive to succeed is enhanced by the subtle, yet powerful skills that come by gentle and persistent guidance from the app.

Parents can be aware of the homework assignments so they can be in the loop and be there to help if a snag occurs. When students know that their parents are aware of what happened in school that day, there is more accountability since everyone is on the same page.

ClassDojo takes a bottom-up approach, starting with the fundamentals of learning using a gamification that the students understand and the results speak for themselves.

She talked about how she became a trailblazer for her gender and the explained challenges she faced over the years, while stressing the importance of women in business.

The program helps them pursue higher education by catering for their learning expenses. This is a great way to give the company employees morale and feel they are part of the corporation. This is one way of ensuring the productivity of the organization is boosted which translates to more growth.

The program has not been futile as more than 40,000 employees have benefited since the program was launched back in 1996. The amount invested so far in the program sums up to more than 1 billion dollars. Contrasted with the number of employees who have benefited so far, the amount seems not to have gone to waste.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund Helps Thousands

The Trump presidency has threatened the world of immigration with laws and travel bans. Constant talk of building a wall to stop the heavy influx immigration was the main theme in Trump’s campaign strategy. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

Since he has become president he has tried to put into law his immigration policies and families live in fear. The recent debates about DACA have put fear into students who have lived freely in the United States until now.

There are much organization who work to help immigrants in this time of need. Here are some that have been recently in the news.

Families for Freedom-assists groups of migrants and families who are under threat of being deported. Families for Freedom consists of former detainees.

The International Refugee Assistance Project-asks law students and attorneys to give free legal assistance to immigrants who are in danger of being turned out of the country.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund -advocates for organizations who offer support for immigration and civil rights. Lacey and Larkin are humanitarians who were arrested by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in 2007 for printing stories about the department’s unfair practices. The two men were granted an award $3.75 million and they took this money and created the Frontera Fund.

The Frontera Fund focuses on helping those who speak out for equal rights and treatment of migrants and other minority groups. The Fund has expanded beyond their home state of Arizona, to assist other states as they deal with the pressing issue of the backload of cases with immigrants in jail.

This amount of cases has a troubling effect on immigrants and their families as they wait for their trials. The long wait times mean difficult separations of families and financial struggles as wives try to make money. Also, judges who are under the pressure of time are more likely to make crucial errors. Some judges claim they must make these life-changing decisions in 7 minutes.

Individuals like Lacey and Larkin have used their lives and careers to protect the rights of all people. If the country is going to find an answer to the problem of immigration, it is going to take more people like Lacey and Larkin to join the fight.

Courage doesn’t always involve money but it often means a personal risk of being outcast or careers in jeopardy. It is up to those who live in the United States to reach out to others in need.
