When searching through some of the leaders who have served at the top executive positions in the food and meat processing industry, Sheldon Lavin would automatically appear. He is among the people who have made OSI Group be as successful as it is today. Through his efforts, the company has managed to expand internationally and even acquire some other international companies. Acquiring a company is not an easy thing especially if the company doesn’t have a good management team to oversee its financial activities. Sheldon has done a lot to enable the OSI group to acquire other companies such as Baho Food and Flagship Europe. One thing that Sheldon wants to see is having the modern food processing techniques spread to other countries across the world.

As the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Group, Sheldon has what it takes to make the company a global force in the food processing industry. He was a successful consultant and banker before he joined the meat industry about 43 years ago. He is a man who doesn’t give up on business, and this has seen him climb from one ladder to another in any organization he has worked for. Sheldon served at other lower positions before he became the CEO of the meat processing company. After rising up to the top position, Sheldon has managed to give the firm an international look. It no longer supplies its products locally as it used to do before.

The firm is today able to supply the meat products to the customers across the world. The international labor force of the company has now increased to about 20,000 personnel. The OSI Group is now proud of the minimized employee turnover it has today besides the overall international success. Sheldon says that the longevity of the employees the company enjoys has its roots in the family culture. Any firm or company that is able to maintain its employees portray great leadership.

Sheldon is remembered for the great fundraiser he organized for the Otto & Sons when the company was in need of a financial boost. Later in 1970, he joined the OSI Group. He is the one who helped the company to have some investments abroad in 1975. For this reason, the two sons in that company found it good to make Sheldon a partner. The amazing thing is that even at 81 years old, Sheldon is still passionate about the growth and expansion of the OSI group.

The presidency is an important position in an organization as it influences the directions that the organization must consider to achieve its goals. In big corporations, the president’s role is a critical component as they steer every activity that promotes sustainability. At Bradesco, this role has once been given to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who served as the president from 2009 to 2018. Luiz has been a significant figure in the Bradesco, and as a result, he managed to secure the current chairmanship role which is even more demanding.

Career development at Bradesco
By the time he was appointed the president of Bradesco in 2009, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has already worked at the company close to 4 decades in different divisions of the company. Starting off as a clerk, he rose through different ranks at the company, and through determination, hard-work, and efficiency, he soon occupied the executive position.

Nothing comes on a silver plate. As he climbed to the top, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi passed through every chain of leadership and worked in different departments. He understood the Bank’s operations, and few leaders in the company would match his skills. Thus, he could successfully match Bradesco’s motto of “continuity and renewal.”

The phenomenal figure could have also been tapped as the president of the bank given his excellent leadership skills at the insurance division of the bank. During his reign as the CEO of the insurance division, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi exhibited strong analytical and leadership skills which enabled the company grip steadily on the market amidst the unstable economic and political market. His success could be made even more apparent when he was honored in 2003 and 2007 respectively as the Insurance Personality of the Year.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has made several achievements as a leader at Bradesco. In a carefully cultivated mode, the former CEO acquired the HSBC Brazilian branch at the cost of $5.2 billion. This deal catapulted the company back to its market dominance beating his major rival, ItauUnibanco in key operational areas: customer base, branch network, and asset base. In effect, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s financial management and able-leadership skills have solidified his household name as well as his stay in the banking sector.

His position as the chairman
Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was recently asked to serve as Bradesco’s chairman after the former chairman retired. With great leadership experience he had received over the years, he was seen as the best fit for the position as most members of the board as well as the Bradesco working team believed in his skills and commitment towards growth. Since he could not fill both the position of chairmanship and that of the president, the company decided to nominate Octavio de Lazari as the new President. With both working closely with executives, it is the hope of the company that they will greatly impact Bradesco.

Aside from his past success and development innovations he steered at Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi remains an admired figure at the company. Many of the employees believe that he is a role model with emulative characters.
