Prior to the merger between Unibanco and Itaú, Bradesco was the largest private bank in Brazil. Itaú-Unibanco posed a challenge to Trabuco, who decided that fighting to regain its position as the largest bank would not be worthwhile. Instead, Trabuco designed a business strategy that focused on making all bank services better and redesigning all agencies as well. This was designed to make Bradesco organically instead of through mergers and acquisitions as other banks often rely on for growth. With the success of the plan, Trabuco solidified his reputation and gained even greater recognition from the banking industry.

In late 2017, Trabuco released to the press that he would be stepping down from his position at Bradesco as CEO at some point in 2018. In addition, he announced that he would be taking on a position on the board that had belonged to the bank’s longest presiding board member, Lázaro de Mello Brandão, who had been the president of the Administrative Council. Moreover, Trabuco holds a waiver blocking the age limit for one to preside as CEO past the age of 65 until the end of 2018, should a successor not be chosen by Bradesco as soon as expected.

Many market and financial experts are confident that Bradesco might have decided on its next CEO until March 2018. Trabuco has stated that this process will be very detailed as it is important that his successor be prepared to deal with the multiple aspects of the Bradesco group and be able to lead Bradesco on every level of its interlocking businesses.

The majority of the mainstream media figures believe that the most likely candidate to succeed Trabuco is Bradesco’s current VP of technology. Even so, it is very well possible that any of its current board members could be chosen as the next CEO to lead Bradesco Group.
