The outgoing President Luiz Carlos Trabuco had a rough childhood due to his poor background. With hard work and a determined mindset, he has broken into the ranks even to the position of a CEO and president of Bradesco Seguros Group, something that seemed impossible. Luiz Carlos Trabuco was born to a low-income family and had many siblings. He faced firsthand challenges of living as a farmer from his parents and decided to forge a different path by pursuing a college education.
He was business-minded, and although many wrote him off due to his poor parents, Luiz Carlos Trabuco had his eyes set on attending college at the University of Sao Paolo. He worked multiple jobs to pay off college until his graduation. He got employed at a local bank where he got himself involved in numerous projects. His hard work drew the attention of other companies in the banking industry.
When Bradesco named him their CEO, he knew there was a catch to it. Luiz Carlos Trabuco started countering the companies declining sales by offering customer-encouraging loan programs so that they could bank with Bradesco. Although many people thought that joining Bradesco was a bad idea, most of his ideas worked raising the company sales over time. Luiz Carlos Trabuco used the increased profits to secure the future of Bradesco for the coming years.
