Expected In March 2018, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Will Be Succeeded By Octavio Lazari

For nine years, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has served as the president of the Bradesco Bank of Brazil, the second largest private bank in the country and Latin America. The bank recently announced that Luiz will move on to a different position and will be succeeded by Octavio Lazari.

Trabuco will remain in his position until at least March 12, 2018, and until the first ordinary general assembly takes place. Close sources to the company informed that although Lazari’s wide experience easily qualified him for the position, he was not the most liked in the lineup of candidates. Many believed the position would be given to Mauricio Minas, who runs the tech area of the business. Octavio Lazari currently serves as the Vice President of Bradesco and has been working for the bank since 1978, steadily climbing the corporate ladder taking on different positions for over 30 years.
