Why Belo Horizonte Is Updating Its Public Lighting

Belo Horizonte is the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is set to be the first capital in this nation to use a Private-Public Partnership (PPP) to modernize all of its lighting throughout the city. There was a bidding process for which private company would handle this project and the winner was BHIP which offered the best balance of prices, techniques, and experience. BHIP already handles the operation and maintenance of all of the existing public lighting in Belo Horizonte. Visit infomoney.com to learn more.

One expert in PPPs and public works projects in Brazil is Felipe Montoro Jens. He says that the Belo Horizonte lighting project should be completed in 2020 and at that time all 182,000 public lights in the city will be equipped with LED technology. LED lighting is not only far more durable than sodium vapor lighting but it is also much less expensive to operate. In particular they last a full decade longer and run at 45% less cost. They also increase safety as the light beam shines on all sides of the light instead of just directly forward.

Felipe Montoro Jens says that the major thorough fares in Belo Horizonte will be the first ones to receive these new lighting solutions. These lights will be able to be controlled remotely, he says, including how luminous they are. Preventative maintenance an also be programmed which will further help to keep costs down and keep the lights in good working order.

Another 138 cities across Brazil are also using PPP projects to update their public lighting. Among the major cities doing so is Sao Paulo which is one of the biggest cities in the world. Felipe Montoro Jens says every government in Brazil recognizes that LED lighting makes a lot more sense than sodium vapor lighting due to durability, cheaper costs to operate, and ability to being remotely controlled. At some point these lights could be installed on smart poles which will provide passerby with information such as bus schedules. These will mostly be built through PPPs, he says, as governments generally lack the resources and expertise to do these types of projects themselves.

Tony Petrello Gets Nabors Industries Involved In Hurricane Harvey Cleanup

Tony Petrello has usually deployed man power to build new wells and open new oil shafts, but when the deadliest storm on record, hurricane Harvey hit Houston and the rest of the Texas coast, he sent it to help with cleanup. Petrello runs one of the world’s largest drilling companies as Chief Executive Officer  of Nabors Industries, and though tough deadlines have to be met for production, he understood the importance of keeping everyone safe and making sure they had time to address any issues at their homes. But he also decided to pay any employees who volunteered to help rescue and cleanup teams overtime pay. Petrello opened up a public donation page to raise money for all victims affected by the damage which raised over $170,000.

Tony Petrello has quite a track record managing a major publicly-traded company. Nabors Industries owns some of the highest rated rigs and has invested a lot into new computer-operated rig technology. High end data analytics are also employed in its drilling operations. Petrello also led a big acquisition this last year to integrate the technologies of Tesco Corporation with Nabors Industries as part of a stock merger, and there will now be new drilling sites opened with the new SANAD venture Nabors entered with Saudi Aramco.

While Tony Petrello is most known for making major stock and drilling deals, he has several accomplishments made before he joined Nabors Industries. His childhood and college story of being a mathematics genius is told by his former roommate Lloyd Grove of the Daily Beast. He often solved mathematics problems on paper napkins during lunch breaks at school, and while he was attending Yale he was a protege of mathematician Serge Lange. After leaving Yale, Petrello decided law was where he wanted to go, so he completed law school and joined the New York law firm Baker & McKenzie in 1979. He became a partner there in 1986 and stayed on until 1991 when he moved to Houston to become Chief Operating Officer of Nabors. Petrello was appointed CEO in 2011 and was given the role of chairman one year later. Other little known details about Petrello include being a friend of Broadway actor Tommy Tune and having him over at his house for a reception. He also serves as a trustee to the Texas Children’s Hospital where he’s given $7 million to fund neurology studies and initiatives for genetics cures.

National Steel Car: Striving for a Better Future Ahead

 

In 1994, Gregory James Aziz purchased the National Steel Car from Dofasco. The rolling stock manufacturing company faced so much problems and challenges during their 100-year history, and the company never imagined that they will again experience their golden days under the leadership of Gregory J Aziz. The National Steel Car was founded in 1912 as Imperial Car Inc, and they last experienced their golden days during the 1920s decade. Since then, multiple problems and challenges followed, including the Great Depression, the First and the Second World Wars, and the 1980s to 1990s crisis which affected the rolling stock manufacturing companies. Gregory James Aziz revealed that he is envisioning the National Steel Car to become a world leader when it comes to manufacturing high quality rolling stocks.

 

Gregory James Aziz has been managing the National Steel Car for more than 20 years now. Back in 1994, when the ownership was transferred under his name, he found out that the National Steel Car only has 500 plus employees, and the number of rolling stock that they can produce every year is only at 3,500 units. Gregory J Aziz decided to keep the employees who were hired prior to him taking full ownership, and he told them that he believes in their skills and expertise in building high quality rolling stocks. He observed how the employees worked, and he was impressed with their dedication in creating what he wanted – a set of rolling stock that can be showcased to the world. Gregory James Aziz hired an additional 2,500 employees who would assist in creating rolling stocks. It resulted to an additional 9,000 rolling stocks produced annually, putting the number of their annual production to 12,500 units. This resulted to additional profits, and the National Steel Car is slowly recovering from the challenges that it faced in the past. View Related Info Here.

 

The astounding performance by the National Steel Car caught the attention of rail transportation companies in the United States. They contacted Gregory James Aziz and purchased a set of rolling stocks, which are now being used in American rail ways. Since then, most investors from the United States are partnering with the National Steel Car for their rolling stock needs, and the company is also speaking with other rail transport companies across the globe to try their products and become one of their partners. Greg Aziz is happy with the performance of the company today, and hopes that the future would bring in more opportunities for them to grow.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Takes Over As Acting Chairman Of Bradesco

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is an incredibly well-known name in the banking and financial industry in Brazil. He has served as an essential part of Bradesco, which is one of the largest privately owned banks in the entire country. He was majorly responsible for the incredible amount of growth that the company has seen in the past years. He has been working with the company for an incredibly extended period, which is also why he has proven to be such an effective leader to the company. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is currently the CEO and acting Chairman of the company.

Recently, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi came forward to announce that the current chairman of Bradesco is retiring at the age of ninety-one, after serving for almost twenty-five years in the position. With his retirement, the entire financial industry is left wondering who the next chairman of Bradesco would viably be. Bradesco has always gone along with the tradition of nominating people from within the company than from outside, which is also what has helped them maintain the high standards that they have for their leaders. Continuing with this tradition, the new chairman of Bradesco will take the position somewhere in the early months of 2018.

Since the company cannot function without a leader, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was chosen to take over the position as the standing chairman, for the time being. He will now have to perform all the duties and operations of both the roles, at least until the new Chairman is elected. So far, fulfilling both the roles has been easy for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi owing to the incredible leadership skills that he has to depend on. He knows how to run the company at its maximum efficiency, which in turn has helped the overall outcome of the operations that Bradesco carries out. Being the CEO and Chairman of a company at once does put a lot of pressure on Luiz Carlos, but because of the efficiency of the work that he does, he makes it seem effortless and easy to execute. There is a lot of pressure on Luiz to perform brilliantly on both the jobs, and he does meet the expectations that people have for him, even if this is a temporary position.

Luiz Carlos has been working at Bradesco since the very beginning of his long career. He started out when he was still a teenager, at the tender age of eighteen. He started working as a bank teller with one of Bradesco’s branches in Brazil. He worked hard to make it up the ranks, learning something new along every step of the way. Because of his work up the ranks, Luiz Carlos knows how every facet of the company functions. He has worked at different levels, right from the very base, to the top. Working at those positions is what has given him an edge over other higher-ups in the company since he knows how every one of them works perfectly, and what are their pros and cons. This has helped him implement strategies that can improve the efficiency of every level of the company, without any miscommunication of the workings of any section along the way.

One of the first incredibly notable positions that Luiz Carlos had was when he was working for a subsection of the company known as Bradesco Security. This was his first time leading an entire corporate structure by himself and proved to be excellent in shaping him up to be the incredibly efficient leader that he is today to Bradesco and all the employees working there.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco gets another promotion at Bradesco

Few people in the world of finance have had a long and remarkable a career as Brazilian banking CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco. The 67 year old banker has been with Bradesco, the largest bank in the country by various measures, since he was just 18 years old. The inveterate financier moved up through the ranks of the firm on little more than hard work and talent. But even as Trabuco is a sort of real-life Horatio Alger story, with a Latin American tinge, he has also been a force for modernization within the bank itself. It is, then, ironic to note that Trabuco’s own ascent would be considerably harder to replicate at the modern firm that he was largely responsible for creating. In effect, Trabuco’s own rise made it almost impossible for another version of Trabuco to ever rise again.

The professionalization of a rural lending institution

The personal rise of Trabuco and the institutional rise of Bradesco happened almost in lockstep with one another. Trabuco first came to work for the bank in 1969, when he was just 18 years old. He had recently graduated high school and noticed a help wanted sign in one of Bradesco’s branches when he was walking home one day.

He walked in, was given an interview and was quickly hired. Over the next few years, he impressed his superiors with his penchant for hard work and quickly learning tasks. By the 1970s, he had already worked his way up to branch manager. It was during the period that he was able to start attending night school at the University of Sao Paulo. He was able to put himself through school, eventually obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration as well as a degree in social psychology.

In 1984, Trabuco was given his first crack at an executive role. He was appointed to head up the firm’s public relations and marketing department. There, he encountered a department that had been run by the seat of the prior management’s pants. Business processes were in disarray, and the overall strategy was far from the norms and best practices that Trabuco had become acquainted with as he studied the methods of the most successful North American financial institutions.

He immediately moved to streamline operations and professionalize the way in which the marketing department was approaching its goals. The bank had previously been involved in little non-advertising activities in the way of improving the corporate image. Trabuco started sponsoring Christmas gift drives and other charity events throughout Sao Paulo. He also began forging strong relationships with local media personalities, taking them out on the company tab and showing them a good time. This eventually led to the bank becoming one of the strongest brands in the Brazilian finance sector.

Trabuco was also able to radically overhaul the way that the financial planning department, which he took over in 1992, went about its business. Again, he was able to completely professionalize the way in which the unit approached its business. Here, Trabuco began a program of differentiating between the services that clients were apportioned based on their value to the firm.

Specifically, Trabuco knew that going after the highest net worth individuals would enable the company to boost its balance sheets by, potentially, hundreds of millions of dollars. This is the strategy he employed, to great effect. Within a few years, the bank had nearly cornered the high-net-worth client market throughout Brazil, adding almost a billion dollars to the bank’s current and money market accounts and enabling it to originate many more loans.

Overall, Trabuco has been a huge asset to the bank. For more information about  Trabuco Bradesco visit: http://www.camar.sp.gov.br/images/imagesnoticias/851/principal.html
