UTC Is the Military’s Best Friend

The Canadian businessman Louis Chenevert has succeeded in the world of business throughout the various decades that he has been working there.

He is a Canadian native having been born and raised in Montréal, Québec. He would gain a production management degree from the University of Montréal which he would put to good use over the years.

His first job out of school was working as a line supervisor at General Motors. He would be working here for over 14 years overseeing production of cars. He reports that this was by far the worst job he ever had but learned the value of people and how everyone longs to make a difference.

He was offered a job at Pratt & Whitney in the year 1993. Here he would continue working with the aircraft engine manufacturer industry. In 1999 he would be promoted to the president of the company.

It was when he came to the United Technologies Corporation that his career really took off. In 2006 he became the chief executive officer and the chairman of the board. In April 2008 he became president of United Technologies Corporation. And to seal the deal, in 2010 he became the chief operating officer.

As the chief executive officer of this multinational global company he needed to be as unique as was possible. Working with his team of executives they were able to create a 30 year product cycle that created products that completely changed the game and strengthened the portfolio of the company. This occurred when they made several key acquisitions to make the company strong.

The 30 year product cycle brought along such innovations as the F135 engine of source position. This fully redefined the military propulsion segment forever. They also developed the GTF engine. This allowed for 20% more efficient fuel burn, noise reduction of 50%, and 30% fewer parts contributing to a lower lifecycle. Working with the government, they leverage new technology to help airplanes have a more narrow body segment. This was then placed in the bombardier C-Series along with a brand-new Embracer. This business is a success.
