Roberto Santiago, Building Shopping Malls With Brilliant Innovations

Robert Santiago is the owner of the most large scale shopping complexes in Brazil. Not one to be boxed in by the expectations of those before him, this Brazilian entrepreneur is always creating building projects, bigger and better than the last. Roberto envisioned turning a non-productive piece of land into a shopping and entertainment megastructure. And as a result construction began in 1988 on Manaira Mall, with a grand opening in 1989. This has become one of the largest shopping malls in the history of the country. But, as time progressed Roberto Santiago proved that visionaries are born with the ability to keep creating. After observing the great success of his first Mall project, he opened another, the Mangabeira Shopping Center. This wasn’t enough, Robert has improved upon the design of the original Manaira Mall and the mall attracts 1.7 million visitors annually.

 

Manaira Mall’s first expansion was completed in 1997, since then Roberto Santiago has updated the original building with five expansions, that includes a garage building, and the addition of National modern furniture store, Tok Stok. But perhaps the most innovative renovation in Brazil is the place that’s now known as the “place to party.”

 

In 2009, Roberto Santiago felt that he could improve the city’s economy by bringing in top rated musical acts from around the world. So, he created a state-of-the-art entertainment and rental venue, Domus Hall. It’s akin to a party pavillion with luxury touches. There are two areas to have fun, one is a main floor mezzanine and the other is an upper level with private cabins, suited for ten people. With a seperate music lounge and staging area with dressing rooms. The ground floor can host open music festivals or rows of chairs and tables. This rooftop party space sits atop the Manaira Mall. It’s complete with soundproof walls, air conditioning and can accomodate 4,000 seats or a crowd capacity of 10,000. The venue is a versatile space for public or private events, such as weddings, graduations, fairs and art festivals.

 

So why is Roberto Santiago considered a business “visionary?” Well, because visionaries are entrepreneurs or businessmen with a grand eye for creating opportunities. Roberto is well known in Brazil and it has made a name for himself internationally as well. Because he goes after the best business opportunities. And he never leaves the buildings to fall into vapid decline. All of his structures have been updated with modern features. He brings out the best in Brazilian culture by combining entertainment and shopping venues with social and economic development. His building projects help add to the culture that is Brazil, filled with lively fun and big, bold flavor.

 

Octavio de Lazari Takes Over Trabuco’s Position As President Of Bradesco

The board of directors at Bradesco have had quite an eventful year with the number of changes that have come their way, especially with regards to the management and board itself. Bradesco was in need of a person to take up the position of chairman of the company after the person who previously held the position decided to retire from the company. Since he had been working at the company for the past twenty-five years, it was a big switch for the company. There were many people who could potentially take over the position of chairman at Bradesco, but the board of directors decided that the person who should take over this position should be none other than Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, who at the time held the position of President at the company.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco had started working for Bradesco when he was in his teens. Getting a job as a bank teller in a Bradesco outlet near his home, he decided to work there to sustain himself and his family. He knew that starting out this early on in the banking industry would be both a pro and a con for him. For one, it would give him an early start into the field, thereby giving him more time to learn and grow. On the other hand, he started working for the company when he was relatively inexperienced, which would make him face a little bit of trouble when it came to competing with the others along with him.

While Trabuco was asked to take on the position of chairman at Bradesco, the previous position that he held would thereon fall vacant. Because this post could not be left vacant, the board of directors at the company would thereon have to decide to appoint a new person to this position, so that it wouldn’t be left vacant. Octavio de Lazari was chosen as the person who would take up the position that Trabuco previously held, and was asked to take over after the shareholders meeting in March.

Why Desiree Perez is Considered One of the Most Powerful Women in the Entertainment Industry

Although she prefers to work mostly behind the scenes, Desiree Perez is one of the most powerful women in the music industry. She is the chief operating officer of Roc Nation, a full-service entertainment business that was founded by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter in 2008. Recently, Billboard magazine compiled a list of the most powerful women in the music industry and was landed on this list. They said that she has a reputation as a fierce negotiator and called out her convincing Sprint to invest $200 million in the music app Tidal in January 2017. This partnership was deemed a huge success when Jay-Z released his 14th album to critical and commercial acclaim on Tidal.

Desiree Perez has been in the music industry for about two decades. For a long time she headed SC Enterprises in the entertainment industry.

It was after Desiree Perez got deeply involved with Tidal that this app started to find success after a period of time when its prospects were gloomy. She turned the app around by signing exclusive deals with a number of musicians who agreed to release an album only on Tidal. Desiree Perez’s initiative on this led to many more people trying out the service for a free trial and then converting to paying a monthly subscription. She also innovated by changing the interface of the app to highlight things such as new musicians to listen to as well as new music from established musicians rather than relying on their backlogs.
