It takes a lot of smart and wise moves to thrive in this highly competitive world of business and even more effort to remain relevant and leave a lasting legacy. However, there are a few people who have shown the world that they have all it takes and among them is Louis Chenevert. Louis worked as the general manager of St Therese Production a unit in General Motors for more than a decade and contributed a lot to the success of the firm. Later on, he started working with Pratt & Whitney which was a unit of UTC. Thanks to his remarkable expertise, Louise Chenevert was elected as the president of the entire division a seat he occupied for seven years before going up the ladder and becoming the chief executive officer and also the president of the company. Louis who hails from Canada has been the fuel behind the success of many businesses today, but the one which stands out most is United Technologies Corporation. During his tenure as the president and CEO, Louis took the company to significant levels through his strategic leadership skills. For instance, he helped the corporation expand through the acquisition of a well-established business known as Good rich. It was not that easy as it took him almost a year to convince the business owner to sell it. After all, no one is willing to sell their business on a silver platter unless it is not doing well. As a leader, Chenevert knew that the success of a firm relies on the skills of the staff. That is why he made it his responsibility to help the staff gain skills in their respective fields. Today his legacy lives on at UTC through the continuation of an education program which he left. Apart from turning UTC into a multi-billion corporation, Louis has also had hands in the success of Pratt & Whitney among many others. Today UTC is the leader in the manufacture of military and commercial jets in the world and many other fields.
