Working for one company for your entire life alone does not guarantee that you will one day head it, but doing so gives you a better chance of attaining that. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has however been able to achieve this with his career in Bradesco bank spanning more than 40 years. His success at Bradesco has been driven by a combination of factors ranging from education to his performance in other key departments within the bank that was very crucial to the bank’s bottom-line. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi attended the University of San Paulo, where he graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences, and Letters. He would then proceed to pursue his postgraduate degree in Socio-Psychology at the Fundação School of Sociology and Politics in São Paulo. These credentials gave him the necessary academic qualifications to enable him lead an organization of Bradesco’s nature. He began as a clerk and worked his way up; he held numerous positions each for a number of years, according him the chance to fully understand the entire business model employed by the bank. He was in charge of Bradesco Vida e Previdência the pension fund department held by the bank for a period of six years starting from 1992. The success here would lead Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi to Bradesco Seguros the insurance division. His appointment as CEO would test his leadership capabilities to the core. This appointment was made back in 2003, and by 2006 he was receiving awards right, left and center. His division was doing so well that by 2006 Bradesco Seguros controlled approximately a fourth of the entire insurance market in Brazil.
In 2009 Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was appointed President of Bradesco bank, he is only the fourth person to hold this position since the bank’s inception. During his time as president, he would oversee one of the largest acquisitions the bank has made to date the acquisition of HSBC Brazil. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has also held various positions that include Chairman of the Marketing and Funding Committee of the Brazilian Association of Real Estate and Savings Credit Institutions (ABECIP) and the President of ANAPP, i.e. The National Association of Private Pensions.
Dr. Saad Saad is a well-know pediatric surgeon. He has held his medical degree for 47 years since earning his degree from the prestigious Cairo University in Egypt. The man learned much about the field in that school where he was able to graduate with honors earning scores that propelled him to be the second highest in this class.
Saad decided to complete his internship in England before deciding to immigrate to the United States of America. England was very different from his home country but it was an exciting two years. He learned a lot about the culture and how enriching it could be to be around other people, which started to make the US a lot more enticing since it is known to some as a melting pot of cultures.
He finished up additional studies when he made it to America to become a fully USA Board Certified Pediatric Surgeon. It is no surprise that Dr. Saad has gotten far in life since education has always been a major aspect of his life. He sat down for an interview and talked about his life.
One thing he mentioned was that he comes from a family of eight children. Every child has focused on education one way or another. He mentioned that three of the siblings are surgeons and two are doctors. Two of the other siblings are engineers and one focused on teaching.
Dr. Saad said he teached his children about the importance of education, which may have encouraged two of them to become surgeons like their father. Another child became a lawyer and the other is an nurse. Perhaps this is the reason he tries to tell others who are interested in the field to seek education whenever possible.
Dr. Saad also mentioned how reaching his dreams of becoming a surgeon has given him the gift of a giving heart. He mentioned how he’s provided help to those who need the most by volunteering for Medical Missions in places like Jerusalem.
Saad cracked a smile when he pointed out that his dream of becoming a surgeon was birthed out his desire for an good air conditioned room. When he was a kid, he remembers suffering through really hot temperatures that exceeded 110 degrees. He wanted a job that would take him away from the heat, which is how he came to surgery.
Stock options have been associated with a lot of problems. They have been associated with overhang and being an accounting burden to the accountants. As a result, there has been a push to change this situation by offering alternative compensation methods that will fill in the gaps that are created by the stock options.
According to compensation lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, there is an option called “Knockout Barrier” option. This is an option that solves the problems associated with the stock options. It has a time limit over which it is valid. In case the prices fall, the options may be deemed to have expired. It is still clear that the employees risk losing their options in case the process falls. However, the business will benefit from reducing the accounting burden, and the risk of stock overhang will be eliminated.
Why does the accounting burden reduce? When the option is time-bound, let say an hour, an account will not have a hard time recording the transitions involved. Knockout Options, unlike the stock options, enable the accountants to prepare a clean annual report that is easy to read and comprehend. To the workers, Knockout options offer attractive benefits.
Knockout barrier options may not have all the answers to workers compensation issues, but at least they eliminate all the problems associated with all other forms of compensation. So far it is the best method and is recommended by Jeremy Goldstein, a prominent lawyer in New York.
The above is not the only incentive methods that can be applied in a business environment. There are other methods, but all in all, the applicability of the method depend on the goals of accompany. A method that works for one company may not work for another.
Jeremy advises companies to choose the methods that best fit their business goals. In his many years of experience, he has seen some companies get into trouble financially for making decisions which do not match with their mode of operations.
Another method that is commonly used is the “Earnings per Share.” This is a payment method that is based on the performance of an employee. EPS is a method that determines the stock prices of a company. The stock price determines if people will invest in a company or not. So, how a company implements the EPS will determine the growth of the business.

Those of us who have enjoyed Organo Gold were already aware of the immense health benefits it offers, but now we have some independent scientific research to back us up. Two new studies published in the Annals of Internal Medicine show a link between moderate coffee drinkers and a reduced risk from diseases such as heart disease and stroke.
The studies examined 185,000 Americans and found they saw increased health benefits regardless of whether they drank caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee. It didn’t matter whether the Americans had Latino, Japanese, or African heritage either; they all indicated a lesser risk for heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
“Seeing a similar pattern across different populations gives stronger biological backing to the argument that coffee is good for you whether you are white, African-American, Latino or Asian,” lead author and UCLA Associate Professor of Meicine Veronica W. Setiawan said in a prepared statement.
The American Sample group regularly reported their coffee drinking habits to the researchers over a period of five years. Setiawan and her team were pleased with the results. “We cannot say drinking coffee will prolong your life, but we see an association,” she said.
A similar European study also surveyed 520,000 people across ten countries and found similar results. The researchers realized their study wasn’t without limitations, and they separated other factors such as smokers from the study as well. To say this study bodes well for those who enjoy their morning cup of Joe is an understatement.
Organo Gold has always been dedicated to delivering only the best cup of coffee to everyone. Moreover, each cup of their coffee has a host of health benefits without sacrificing on the original taste that everyone loves so well. We at Organo Gold look at this study and realize these researchers are simply waking up to something we have known all along!
Amicus Therapeutics is a biotechnological company recognized globally for their dedication towards the treatment of orphan diseases. The company has been at the forefront of research and treatment of a range of devastating rare diseases.
Amicus Therapeutics was founded in February 2002 and is based in Cranbury, New Jersey. The company is headed by John Crowley, who is the CEO and Chairman of the board. Other key figures include Bradley Campbell, who is the Chief Operations Officer, and William Baird, who is the Chief Finance Officer. Amicus Therapeutics is a publicly traded company under the brand NASDAQ. The company has been on the stock exchange since 2007 after a planned IPO.
Amicus mainly focuses on rare and orphan diseases (http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/08/02/amicus-therapeutics-the-fight-against-the-rare-diseases/). The Chaperone-Advanced Replacement Therapy, otherwise referred to as CHART is the main basis of the company’s product development. Amicus has put an emphasis on enzyme replacement therapies (ERTs). The company’s efforts have earned them accolades. In 2014, Amicus was recognized as the company with the broadest portfolio in terms of small molecule pharmacological chaperones in the entire pharmaceutical industry.
Although they had no marketed products by February 2014, some of the most notable developments from Amicus Therapeutics include migalastat, otherwise known as Galafold. Galafold is a pharmacological chaperone treatment which is aimed at stabilizing endogenous mutant alpha-galactosidase for the treatment of Fabry disease.
Amicus Therapeutics has no manufacturing capabilities and therefore relies on contract manufacturing (WeeklyOpinion). Additionally, the company collaborates with other like-minded firms to come up with treatments for complex diseases. One of its most notable collaborations was with GlaxoSmithKline and JCR Pharmaceutical. The collaboration which lasted from 2010 to 2013 was aimed at investigating co-formulation with recombinant alpha-galactosidase.
It is worth noting that in 2008, the company expanded its activities from its single location in New Jersey to a second research facility in San Diego. Additionally, Amicus got a big financial boost, when they received a US$500,000 grant in 2010 from the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The grant was aimed at supporting studies conducted by Amicus in collaboration with the David Geffen School of Medicine.
In 2013, Amicus went a step further and acquired CallidusBiopharma, which was one of their competitors. The acquisition granted Amicus Therapeutics intellectual and material property for the treatment of Pompe disease.
Alexandre Gama is a Brazilian advertising entrepreneur. He is a very skilled businessman with creativity and professionalism in both Advertising and Publicity. There are about 20 largest advertising agencies in Brazil, and among them is Neogama, an agency that Gama founded in 1999 and is currently its CEO and CCO.
Alexandre Gama graduated from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP), with a degree in Publicity and Advertising. The Brazil communication industry felt his presence when he started representing it after he joined ABAP. Since then, Gama has worked with other companies like BBH, DM9, among others. It is when he was the CEO of BBH that Gama became the first Brazilian to be on the leader board of global communication agencies. In 2002, Alexandre associated the two companies; Neogama and BBM, the London branch. In 2016, however, after 14 years of activity, Gama cut off the BBM network and renamed it Neogama.

If it were not for leaders like Matthew Autterson, America would not be recovering from the past damage that Pres. Obama has cost. FAB holds that Matthew Autterson is quite an asset to have in the Greater Denver Area and that he is its greatest weapon in the fight for reforming biotechnology education. What is interesting to note is that both Matthew Autterson and his wife have been working very hard in there six months in office and have, so far, kept several of the promises they made to make it in this year alone. The level of progress is astounding and only shows potential.
It appears, after all, that Matthew Autterson and his team were people of their word and intended to do just what they said when they ran for leadership roles. This is exceptionally rare to see among any biotech leader, but let it serve as a lesson to all who are running for rank: Do exactly what you promised to do, and do not lie as a way to power, for you will be found out. Instead, go the honest route and work hard, and your reputation will more than speak for itself in the long run – as it has done so for CNS Biosciences President Matthew Autterson and his team. Pres. Matthew Autterson and his crew are not alone as they also hold other top candidates in the offices surrounding them, men and women of solid conservative values who only care about the good of this country and not merely their wallets.
This makes all the difference, so keep it in mind: With such leaders behind the science arena, there is no doubt that America can change for the better. Let us keep hoping and praying. Let us support as needed and make the change. God bless America. Peace and justice to all Americans. The educational biotech arena has an entire future ahead of it, and this is only the beginning: Will you lead the change?
Matthew Autterson is a top reformer and biotech specialist. As Board Member under FAB, he has more than his share of challenges but faces them willingly. He knows, after all, what he signed up for. He has also promised to do more this year that has ever been done recently to reform the biosystem sector in Colorado and has been no less ahead in the fight than others.
