Prior to hiring new executives, the bank will also undertake a background check that will include reviewing media reports about the person in question, BNDES said in a press release.

BNDES is in the midst of a process to strengthen its corporate governance as past administrations of the bank have been accused and criticized for letting politics influence key decisions at the country's largest development lender.
