Louis Chenevert: Grand Businessman

A lot can be said about Canadian businessman Louis Chenevert. He’s one of those business professionals who jump from company to company, adding to his resume while leading the company to great success. He’s most famous for his time at United Technologies Corporation (UTC).

He first joined UTC in March 2006 as President and COO. Two years later, he was named Chairman and CEO. Not a lot of people know about what he did before or the fact that he’s still working today. He retired from UTC in 2014 and started working for Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division.

In an interview that he did a while ago, he talked about his career at UTC. He talked about the challenges of being the CEO of a multinational company. The idea of United Technologies came from a number of top executives and small teams that were all focused on delivering products that customers would love.

Working at a company like UTC, technology played a big part in his success. He mostly focused on operational talent and engineering. Like any good leader, he understood the importance of putting the right teams together to develop game-changing products. After developing anything, he’d personally go over every key objective to make sure everything was good to go.

Obviously, he loves how much technology has changed the world. Working in the industry he works in, he knows how hard it used to be before technology was so helpful. He’s excited to see how fast and progressive technology changes and changes the industries it affects.

Louis Chenevert isn’t just a brilliant CEO; he’s also a brilliant entrepreneur. Like all entrepreneurs, he has a set of natural skills that everyone wants to know about. For him, his skills are more like habits, and he doesn’t see them being different from what everyone else also has.

During his long career, he most dislikes the time he worked for General Motors and worked as a line supervisor. It was his first job and he had to learn a lot.
