United Technologies UTC has over the years been overcoming the challenges that have for so long affected the manufacturing sector in the United States. Proper management structures, innovations, and advancement of technology are some of the factors that have kept the company stronger for many years. Many other corporations in the manufacturing sector have closed shop due to onerous regulations from government, change in customer preferences and choices, and increased competition, but UTC has continued to skip the hurdles and remain a significant player in the manufacturing word. The fighting spirit is due to its ability to innovate and adapt to changes as they come.
Louis Chenevert is a formidable executive well known in the industrial sector. He began his career in the production sector as a production general manager for General Motor’s St. Theresa’s production plant. His work was to oversee the general operations at the plant. After more than a decade at the plant, Louis quit joining United Technologies subsidiary in Canada, Pratt, and Whitney. While there, Louis continued with his excellent work and performing way ahead of the executive’s expectations, after six years he was elected president of the subsidiary. His star kept shining, and in 2006 he was appointed chief executive officer and president of United Technologies.
During his reign as the top boss at UTC, he transformed the corporation to become one of the biggest industrial conglomerates in the United States. He gained a lot of respect from his employees due to the many changes he brought to the company, from encouraging adaptation of innovative technology to initiating scholarship programs for members of staff. In his expansion quest, Louis handled the purchase of Goodrich Corporation which in-turn saw UTC become the chief distributor of turbofan engines, GTF engines, and F-35 engines, and the number one manufacturer of choppers in the United States.
