The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund supports other humanitarian groups in Arizona that share a common goal. This is ensuring that immigrants, human and civil rights are respected.

After publishing his evil deeds, he unlawfully arrested them and took them to a secret location. The civilians protested and demanded their release.

Later, they filed a report against the Sherriff, which they won. Following the illegal arrest, they received a compensation of $3.75 million. This was the money that they used to set up the Frontera Fund.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)

The CHIRLA Group is among the top list, of the foundations that fight for immigrants and their families. Through their effort, many people finally have a good life.

The groups fight to ensure that these individuals are served with justice. According to them, a right denied to one person is an offense to the society in whole. The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund The disabled people in the society do not need pity. What they need is support and provision of opportunities in the community.

AmEx, one of the biggest card companies in the US, recently bid its long-serving chairman(Kenneth Chenault) and welcomed a brand new chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Squeri. Mr. Squeri is very enthusiastic and is positive that he will take the company to the next level despite the many challenges it has been facing lately. Among his major tasks as he takes over the office is regaining Chris Burch among many other loyal customers that have since drifted away due to one reason or the other.

Stephen Squeri also has to come up with ways to gain a competitive edge which has proved to be a challenge to AmEx considering the stiff competition that the company has been struggling to tackle. Competition has risen from banks and other card companies such as PayPal Holdings Inc. Investors have had a reason to raise the alarm over how the firm has been handling competition over the years. All eyes are therefore on the new chairman to see if he makes some changes to beat the competition which is now threatening the survival of the company.

One of the top priorities of Mr. Squeri is to regain its most reliable clients. This includes Mr. Burch whose line of business makes use of the cards that AmEx supplies. The renowned entrepreneur owns hospitality enterprises, technological outlets, and retail investments. Mr. Burch has been disappointed at the company for various reasons and has since ceased doing business with them. The impacts of the decision have been greatly felt by the company. Getting him back at the table would propel AmEx a great deal.

Leadership transitions in companies are both inevitable and essential. Since organizations cannot avoid them, the smarter ones make sure to have processes and systems in place that facilitate smooth transitions. One such organization is Brazilian lender, Bradesco. The bank unexpectedly found in itself needing to appoint a new president after a top-level resignation in October. The previous chairman of the board, Lazaro Brandao decided to resign from his position due to old age, thus prompting his deputy on the board, Luiz Carlos Trabuco to be appointed as his replacement. However, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has also been serving as the bank’s president. Consequently, his promotion to the post of chairman has created the need to select a replacement.

A New President

Since Bradesco was founded over seven decades ago, it has only had four presidents. Each of these four men is a legendary banker in his own right. Consequently, the bank will be looking to select the best candidate to add on to its prestigious list of presidents. The new president will be selected by the Bradesco board and be presented to the shareholders at a gathering scheduled to take place in March 2018. Most of the named that have been thrown around in speculation are of the current executive vice presidents at the bank. In particular, Octavio Lazari, Alexander da Silva Gluher, Mauricio Machados Minas and Josue Pancini have been the most talked about.

Building on the Foundation Laid By Luiz Carlos Trabuco

Just as Luiz Carlos Trabuco did with his predecessor, Marcio Cypriano’s work when he was appointed to replace him in 2009, the incoming president will have to build on what Trabuco has done. Fortunately, Trabuco’s work over the last nine years has been quite significant as it has led to Bradesco becoming one of the strongest private banks in the country. For instance, two years ago he orchestrated a multibillion-dollar acquisition of HSBC Brazil. The addition of the mid-tier bank’s assets and customers to those Bradesco made Bradesco significantly close in one the number one spot among private lenders in the country. Equally, the incoming president will be expected to continuing growing the bank while aiming to bring more pride the bank’s way by undisputedly claiming that number one spot.

Destined for the Top

Since his early days at Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco always seemed destined for the very top. He was first employed by the bank in 1969, aged only 18. While he did not have any academic qualifications in banking or any form of experience in the industry, his dedication and affinity for leadership shone through even at that age. As search, he did not continue serving in an entry position for long. In 1971, he got his first promotion as his station was transferred from the bank’s Marilia branch to the head office in Sao Paulo. From then on it was simply promotion after promotion across the various facets of banking that Bradesco had operations in. Consequently, by the time he got named the bank’s president in 2009, he had already worked in marketing, insurance and a raft of other important areas in the financial sector. As such, he has for the last few years been considered an all-rounded banking executive. In the last nine years that he has been the president of the ban, he has consistently proven this assertion by employing a combination of shrewdness and innovation to get the desired result. Therefore, when Lazaro Brandao announced that he would be stepping aside, the only logical choice to succeed him was Luiz Carlos Trabuco.
