There may already be numerous articles in the mainstream news and media firms about the leadership of Louis Chenevert. But not many of these articles have really tackled or shared the inspiring story and anecdotes of how Louis Chenevert reached the kind of success that he’s achieved so far.
For starters, it should be shared that Chenevert has been honed and trained because of his skills in production management. This is the kind of skills that has lent him the opportunity to work for General Motors, before he went on to become the CEO of United Technologies (UTC). He also became the trusted expert and advisor for Goldman Sachs. It also helps that he is a Canadian businessman, and his geological roots gives him the unique attitude and management style that not many other leaders can render.
UTC today is an established company in the field of providing solutions for elevators, security systems and escalators, as well as programs to solve issues in aircraft engines. With Chenevert controlling its operations, the company’s growth became evident to be skyrocketing and to have been gaining all the opportunities that the global marketplace is able to provide. Without Chenevert, it might even be impossible for UTC to land a total $10 billion worth of investment opportunity in developing the turbofan aircraft engine.
A feature from Ideamensch would also remind everybody about the strengths of Chenevert today. For starters, they are reminded that Chenevert as CEO and President of UTC means a great improvement in UTC as a tech company. Under his leadership, he has grown the high-performance level of the organization into dramatic heights.
His unmatched portfolio and strong leadership team also means that he is consistent in rendering his skills into actual practice. While other leaders only display their kinetic expertise in ideas and on paper, the ideas of Chenevert are translatable to the real world. With his leadership, he has made the idea of translating into reality ideas that were once used to be deemed quite impossible or impractical.
Chenevert, then, has changed the game and its rules. He has opened up opportunities, inspired others to create exciting products and led solutions that like-minded people in aircraft engineering were able to emulate.
