Louis Chenevert is almost sixty now. He began his life in Montreal. Canada and ended up becoming one of the most accomplished CEOs in modern history. He knew right from the beginning that the bottom is where a person started. He worked at GM for fourteen years and was able to show that he had the ability to take the lead on any job and see it through to the end. After working at GM, he went on to work for Pratt and Whitney. When he became president of that company Louis Chenevert was looking for a challenge and he found it with United Technologies Corporation (UTC).
The challenge for Chenevert was to turn a competitive company into a cutting-edge one. In eight short years, beginning in 2006 he was able to make that dream a reality. he focused his presidential prowess on what the company did best. He knew that the company worked best in the aerospace industry and turned the company in that particular direction. The second thing he focused on was the workers at the facility. He figured out that earning their trust and respect now will pave the way for UTC in the future. He enabled the workers to go to college and earn their degrees in their respective fields.
Louis Chenevert also helped the company by coming up with new ideas in order to keep UTC ahead of the competition. With the help of those at UTC, Chenevert was able to bring one of his pet projects to life and make UTC the envy of the industry. He created a geared turbofan engine that cut emission by almost half. It helped revolutionize the industry and made UTC one of the best in the business. He had left the company in 2014 much better off than when he started.
Louis Chenevert is a man of innovative ideas. He has the skills and determination to make companies and people better. To earn the trust of his workers and move UTC forward were his main goals. He achieved that and much more in an amazingly short period of time.
