How did you start your career?
Louis began his career after getting a degree in Production Management from HEC Montreal and started working at General Motors at St. Therese, Quebec. His employer was very impressed with his work and never regretted ever hiring him. He later put Louis in charge of the General Motors assembly line in Montreal. Due to the fact that Louis and his employer, Hachey were almost of the same age, and the hard work of Louis, every time Hachey got promoted, he promoted Louis to replace the gap he has left.
He later got an opportunity to move to another field, thanks to Pratt & Whitney, an aerospace manufacturer who saw the great work he had done in General Motors. Louis guided the company to a greater success by improving the processes. Louis was then elected as the company’s president.
What is the origin of United Technologies Corporation (UTC)?
After working with General Motors for a long time, Louis changed and moved on to a completely diverse industry. According to Louis, he got many ideas from important senior managers and tactical small groups in a small crew. These groups had an intense background of familiarizing with the needs of customers and a desire to deliver 30-year cycle products that were game changers.
When working at UTC, Louis paid attention to operating skill and engineering which were of key benefit to conveying ideas that would, in turn, produce results that surpassed customers’ anticipations.
P&W was a subordinate of UTC which was an international company that worked with both the military and civilian economics and produces a wide range of products like aircraft engines, elevators, and HVAC among others. In 2006, Louis Chenevert was elected as the chairman of the corporation and later climbed to being a CEO. He has had a great impact on the company processes and production.
