Cassio Audi: A Teen Idol

Metal music was all the rage back in the 1980s, and not just in the United States and Britain. South America was the birthplace of one of the most interesting metal bands of the 80s: Viper. Viper started back in 1985 when five teenage boys from San Paulo, Brazil formed a band in their garage. One of the founding members was lead drummer, Cassio Audio. His beats and enthusiasm quickly spread to the rest of the band members and sub sequentially, the thousands of fans.

Brazil was the most unlikely place for a heavy metal band to form, much less become popular, but that is exactly what happened. In 1985, Cassio Audi and Viper released their first album, a demo titled The Killera Sword. The teenagers quickly began being booked all around their hometown of San Paulo, with Cassio spending all his time outside of school trying to book gigs. Soon, Viper was paying all over Brazil and South America.

The success of Cassio Audi and Viper was unexpected because of the age of the band members but even more so because they sung their lyrics in English. This was unprecedented but it was even more impressive that nobody could tell that they boys were not singing in their native language.

In 1987 Viper released their first and only studio album, Soldiers of Sunrise, and the band started becoming popular all over the world. Their ability to play metal, heavy meta, thrash, and even alternative rock gave them wide appeal. The band went on a tour of South America and later toured Europe. The band broke up in 1989 and has yet to reunite, although there have been rumors of talk of third album. For Cassio Audi, his time as a teenager playing music and living his dreams is something that he will always cherish.

Newly Appointed Bradesco Chairman Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Will Oversee Some Drastic Changes at the Bank in His First Few Weeks in Office

2018 will mark the 75th year since Brazilian bank, Bradesco was founded by Amador Aguiar. The bank’s long and successful existence has unfortunately been marked by a number of shortcomings. The latest shortcoming Bradesco has faced is the resignation of its longtime chairman, Lazaro Brandao. Mr. Brandao had been serving in this capacity for close to three decades and had been at Bradesco throughout its entire existence. He was by far the most experienced banker at Bradesco and in the Brazilian banking industry. However, true to the Bradesco’s resilient nature, it has turned this recent shortcoming into an opportunity for future prosperity by appointing Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi as Mr. Brandao replacement. Mr. Brandao has for the last few years been serving as the bank’s president and has in that time shown a great affinity for innovation and strategic management. Even Mr. Brandao’s unfortunate departure, hopefully, the unique skill set possessed by Cappi will revitalize the board going forward.

Lazaro Brandao’s resignation had long been anticipated at Bradesco. In fact, some industry observers were startled that he waited till he was past the age of 90 to announce that he would be leaving the highly demanding post of chairman. Consequently, the bank had had some time to prepare for the day he would eventually leave. In 2014, bank president Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was nominated to become the board vice chair. This appointment allowed him to directly learn from Mr. Brandao about what it takes to run the board of such a large bank. The transition to Cappi’s tenure will, therefore, likely have no problems and will greatly inspire the confidence of shareholders, staff, and customers.

Among Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s earliest responsibilities as the chairman of Bradesco’s board is that he will have to oversee the process of appointing a new president. His promotion to Mr. Brandao’s previous position means that he has also vacated a position. Fortunately, Cappi will have Bradesco’s stringent bylaws and highly defined culture to guide the process of selecting a replacement. He has already indicated that he will stick to the bank’s traditions by announcing late last year that Bradesco’s next president will be appointed from within the institution. However, the bank’s fifth president will not be announced until March, consequently meaning that Cappi will have to continue serving in the capacity for a few more weeks.

There is also a high likelihood that the leadership changes currently being experienced at Bradesco could also reach its board. While Bradesco has grown tremendously over the last few decades, this, unfortunately, has not been accompanied by a growth in the number of board members. Currently, there are eight seats on the bank’s board and are currently occupied by the family of Amador Aguiar and banking professionals. The board’s current size is quite small for a bank’s of Bradesco’s stature, and there is a serious drive to expand its members. However, any increases in the size of the board will almost certainly be accompanied by removal of the president’s seat on the board. This change will equally ensure that the president is not held back by non-executive responsibilities and thus solely concentrate on growing the bank.

While it may be hard to believe right now, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi started out at the very bottom with Bradesco. He was appointed the clerk of his local town’s branch while still being a teenager. Over the next four decades, he combined the knowledge learned from his superiors with his unwavering dedication that led him to earn a stream of promotions that led to him being president – and now, chairman of the board.

Paul Wesley Makes The Jump From ‘Vampire Diaries’ To Film Producer

While most fans still are most likely to recognize Paul Wesley from his role long-running role as Stefan on “The Vampire Diaries,” he wants people to know that he’s focusing on the world of film. More specifically, producing and directing films.

Wesley’s first stab at movie production was on the 2014 independent film “Before I Disappear,” which starred Shawn Christensen, Emily Rossum and Ron Perlman. He produced the film and also has a small supporting role in the project. At nearly the same time, he took on a featured role in the independent film “Amira and Sam.” In that project, Wesley played the crooked Wall Street cousin of the main character.

Ironically, that focus on small-scale motion pictures opened up a new opportunity for the actor: theater. Following the strong reviews for both films, Wesley was offered a lead role in the William Francis Hoffman play “Cal in Camo,” which became his New York stage debut. In the play, Wesley played a man trying to make sense of his life following the death of his wife. He begins spending a lot of time with his sister and her husband, whose ongoing personal problems manage to make his life even more of a challenge.

Wesley returned to motion pictures in 2016 with roles in the films “Mothers And Daughters” and “The Late Bloomers.” He also wrapped up his role on TV’s “Vampire Diaries,” when his character was killed off in the one of the show’s final episodes. He’s now at work on another television series “Medal of Honor,” which focuses on the stories of men and women who have won the American Medal of Honor for bravery during their military service.
