The golf hotel is situated next to the Parana Enterprise which has 109 residential houses and plans are underway to construct two other units similar to the Parana Enterprise where one will be in Aracaju and the other in Macelo.

Guilherme has been categorized as a courageous investor because despite there being high tax charges and also the reduction in the number of tourists, the entrepreneur has managed to keep up with the market as it is.

June 27, 2018

In the world of Brazilian finance, there is no bigger story than the rise from relative obscurity into one of the most powerful financial institutions in the country, the bank known as Grupo Bradesco. Starting as a small one-branch local thrift institution, Bradesco was able to rise from a tiny local concern into a bank with more than 5,000 branches and more than $400 billion under active management. And all of this took less than 40 years to accomplish.

But the story of Bradesco’s rise would be incomplete without mentioning one of the key figures in its ascent from the small time to the international spotlight. Luiz Carlos Trabuco is one of the country’s most famous bankers. As the longtime president of Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has led the bag through a period of massive expansion and has help create huge value for shareholders. But it wasn’t always this way.

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco first came to work for Bradesco, all the way back in 1969, the bank had little more prestige than Trabuco himself, who at that time was a mere high school graduate without a college degree. When he became a teller at on of the small bank’s branches, his first job ever, it had only a couple of branches throughout the small Sao Paulo town of Marilia.

But throughout the 1970s, Trabuco was able to begin rising through the ranks of the corporation. It was during this time that the bank itself also started rising on the regional stage, expanding to dozens of different branches throughout much of Sao Paulo state. And Luiz Carlos Trabuco himself was behind much of this expansion. Through his vision and leadership, the company was able to successfully expand to other markets, outcompeting many of its erstwhile competitors and delivering top-flight customer service to everyone in its markets.

Throughout the 80s and 90s, Trabuco was able to continue his ascent through the ranks of the institution. At the same time, the institution itself continued to expand throughout Brazil, eventually reaching the point where it was a bona fide national power player. In 2009, Trabuco was appointed to the presidency of the firm. This marked the final step in his ascent from the lowest position at the bank to the highest. And in his role as president, Trabuco was able to finally take Bradesco to the number one position in Brazil, finally surpassing is nearest competitors and becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of Brazilian banking.

The goal of this company was to offer various types of transportation services under one roof. Since then, The Custom Cares Companies has held the industry standard in quality, world class service.

January 24, 2018

While it is normal for freshly graduated job seekers to commence their professional journeys as junior members of staff, few are as visionary to ascend the corporate ladder as Banco Bradesco SA’s immediate former chairman, Lazaro de Mello Brandao. Brandao joined Bradesco in 1943—the same year Amado Aguiar established the bank. When Bradesco hired him, Brandao was a 17-year-old teenager who had not pursued any professional studies. Therefore, Brandao started out his career as a clerk. Starting out as a clerk meant that the there was only one way for Brandao to go, and that is up.

Brandao’s big break occurred in January 1963, when Bradesco appointed him one of the directors at the Osasco-based bank. The promotion preceded appointments as vice president and president in 1977 and 1981 respectively. Brandao became the second president CEO of Bradesco succeeding Aguiar. It was not long before Brandao once more succeeded Aguiar as the second chairman of the board of directors, representing the Bradesco Foundation on the board. Brandao then served as the chairman and the president of Bradesco, resigning as president in 1999. Following his resignation, Marcio Cypriano was named the new president. Meanwhile, Brandao was freed to concentrate on discharging his duties as the president of Bradesco until his recent departure on October 11, 2017.

At the helm of Bradesco, Brandao oversaw the expansion of the bank to its present status. He spearheaded the launch of internet banking, expansion of Bradesco to neighboring countries including Argentina, and the acquisition of numerous smaller banks including the purchase of the Brazilian branch of HSBC in 2013. In addition, Brandao is credited with establishing a culture that favors Bradesco’s staff over those from related organizations whenever leadership positions arise in the bank. In fact, the bank is on record affirming that its new CEO will be appointed from among its pool of high-ranking employees, in light of the impending resignation of its CEO.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco

He is the present chairman and CEO of Bradesco. While he has been part of Bradesco since 1969, Luiz Carlos Trabuco became Bradesco’s president in 2009, and chairman on October 11, 2017. As you may have noticed, Luiz Carlos Trabuco became the chairman of Bradesco the same day—0ctober 11, 2017—Brandao announced his resignation: Bradesco appointed Luiz Carlos Trabuco to succeed Brandao.

However, Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s tenure as president of Bradesco will end in March. Therefore, the bank is prospecting for a new CEO to succeed the outgoing Luiz Carlos Trabuco. In a press conference that marked Brandao’s resignation and the promotion of Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the bank through its CEO appeared to have made up its mind on who will become its fifth CEO. According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco, only high-ranking Bradesco’s employees will be considered for the position. Insiders confided to Bloomberg that Bradesco had even identified likely candidates. 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.

As indicated earlier, the seven are high-ranking employees currently holding leadership positions at the bank. For example, Cano is in charge of Bradesco human resources department; Minas is the head of Bradesco’s IT department, and Abreu is the team leader of treasury and lending departments, etc. Noteworthy is the fact all of them the seven have been Bradesco’s employees for significant periods. In fact, apart from Minas and Noronha, the rest joined the Osasco-based Bradesco in either the ‘70s or the ‘80s. In addition, the seven are in their 50s, fitting into Bradesco’s profile of suitable candidates as evidenced by previous appointments.

Rick Smith Talks about Securus Technologies’ Recent Stock Purchase Agreement

January 5, 2018

Richard A. Smith is the Chairman and CEO of Securus Technologies. His company’s one of the largest providers of assistance to public service agencies. Based Dallas, TX, Securus works with law enforcement to keep prisons and the surrounding communities safe.

When Smith became CEO, he led the company to many successes. He’s turned the company into a strong investment, for both investors and communities. That’s proven by the number of appreciation letters and emails the company gets on a regular basis.

A Stock Purchase Agreement allows companies to acquire other companies easily. Without one, things can turn into a battle fairly quickly, which may be more detrimental the both companies’ stocks than beneficial. Recently, Securus Technologies acquired JPay Inc. by using a definitive Stock Purchase Agreement. According to Wikipedia

Securus is one of the largest corporations in the corrections industry. They’d been watching JPay’s climb to the top since JPay introduced electronic payments, emails, and related apps to the industry. That one move allowed JPay to create an entirely new segment of the corrections space.

Now, Rick Smith Securus hopes to dominate this new industry with JPay’s help. The segment is the fastest growing in the industry, which means other companies are catching on. It’s only a matter of time before the competition begins challenging Securus and JPay, which is why the two agreed to combine their efforts.

Now that both teams are working together, Rick Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies, expects both companies to produce the best products and offer the best services in the entire industry. He hopes that none of his competition will even have the resources to come close to challenging the duo.

According to JPay CEO Ryan Shapiro, JPay is just as excited by the acquisition. His team’s relentless pursuit of the company’s mission created numerous industry-changing products. Now, with a larger corporation behind them, he hopes his team can produce groundbreaking products much faster than before. Read more at securus.net about Rick Smith Securus.

As part of the acquisition, Securus acknowledged JPay’s innovation, allowing the company to remain as it was. Rather than merge, JPay is considered a wholly owned subsidiary, which allows the company to continue operating as it normally does. Now, they have access to Securus’ network and resources. They also have the added benefit of being financially supported by one of the largest companies in the business.

The Efforts of Immigrants to Protect the DACA Program

December 19, 2017

Staunch supporters and member of the Republican Party are currently conducting campaigns to oppose the existence of the DACA program. Thousands of young immigrants who are based in the United States have been getting the news through their networks and organizations. DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was established to protects undocumented youths who had attained specific qualifications to stay in the U.S., be offered a social security number, and also have the permission to be employed in the country. The DACA membership is valid and renewable after two years. Many states have been allowing young people who are under this program to receive driver’s licenses and in-state tuition.

The Texas A.G, Ken Paxton, once sent a letter to the Trump administration demanding that he wanted it to terminate the DACA program before September 5. He even threatened to take legal action if the government failed to abolish the law. The termination of DACA has not been planned to be abrupt. It will be gradual whereby the no renewal or new application will be approved. One governor and nine A.G. who belong to the Republican Party supported Paxton’s demands.

Hispanic community members were recently invited by John Kelly, the secretary of Homeland Security, in a closed-door meeting. According to Kelly, more than 800,000 persons benefited from the program at that time. He said that several people had filed lawsuits against DACA. Many immigrants and activist had seen this coming, but the John Kelly’s announcement left them more worried. The program was started five years ago, and it has benefited the United States in various ways. Approximately 95 percent of the people who are registered under DACA work and study. They offer millions of dollars to higher learning institutions that are located across the country. These persons have also strived to better their earnings, and therefore, they pay high taxes. Most DACA beneficiaries invest their money in acquiring homes and cars, education, and establishing businesses.

Several studies that have been conducted across the United States show that DACA has been very successful. Dreamers are now afraid that they might be deported after the abolition of DACA. They have been fighting to stop any efforts to eliminate the program just like they did in 2012. Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is determined to offer support, counseling, and information to facilitate the efforts to protect DACA. It believes that a dreamer act law should be passed to prevent a future crisis.
