Louis Chenevert started his employment journey at the general motors where he worked for more than a decade. Then later he joined the Pratt and Whitney of the united technologies corporation. He worked in the Pratt Corporation for six years. While still in the company he was elected as the president of the entire organization. He worked as the president of the Pratt and Whitney for the seven years when he was appointed as the president and the CEO of the UTC. Under his leadership, so many things were achieved at UTC that is worth close to $100 million.
Chenevert achieved so much in one single year that so many people failed to achieve throughout their entire career. What he focused on more was the acquisition of the Goodrich. He spent more than one year negotiating with them until they decided to agree to the deal. They deal was worth more than $18.4 billion. From the moment he agreed to the role of becoming the CEO of UTC it became his duty in ensuring that he used the knowledge and experience that he had to ensure that he had made a huge improvement in the company. His mission was to leave the company better than how he had found it. Chenevert mostly invested in the right tech because he believed that the right tech would take the company far.
His commitment to his work was shown when he came up with the company’s employee scholar program. The main aim of this program was that it was going to help some of the employees that were interested in pursuing further education in various fields. And thanks to the program from 1996, over 40,000 employees of UTC has since managed to benefit from this program. One of the quality that most people admired in Chenevert was that he had a leadership style as the CEO of UTC was that he was forward-thinking when it came to picking up a project. He could pick a project that he saw worth it and made his team work towards making the project a success.
