The technology in our world today is incomparable to the technology of the past century. We managed to develop at a faster rate, thanks to the technological geniuses who are exerting their efforts and knowledge in order to discover new things and develop existing technologies for the benefit of men. United Technologies Corporation, an American company which focuses on developing high tech machines and systems, is one of those private organizations who are working with other technological companies in order to create something that can improve the lives of the people. The past CEO and chairman of the United Technologies Corporation, Louis R. Chenevert, can be credited for many of the breakthroughs that the company has introduced during the last decade. Under the leadership of Louis R. Chenevert, the employees of the United Technologies Corporation focused on doing what they think they can, expanding their knowledge of the things that they cannot do so that they would have the ability to face them one day. Chenevert also addressed the need of everyone to assist and help one another, because he believes that cooperation is one of the keys to success.
Louis R. Chenevert was born in Canada, but moved to the United States after graduating from the University of Montreal. He’s worked with several corporations, including General Motors where he stayed for 14 years, and Pratt & Whitney Company where he stayed for 6 years. He resigned after receiving a job offer from the United Technologies Corporation, and he worked hard in order to be promoted. In 2006, he was named as the Chairman, and he is making sure that the condition of all the staff working under the operations department is good. Because of his compassion towards the employees and his dedication to lead the company to the top, he was promoted to become the CEO. Louis R. Chenevert believes in the power of the people, and one of his programs was a scholarship grant to deserving people around the world. He lets them study and pay for their tuition, but the scholars should choose a course that could help improve the company, mainly engineering courses. These people were automatically hired by the United Technologies Corporation, and these young minds are vital for the success that the company is currently experiencing. Louis R. Chenevert has invested in the youth who have fresh ideas about the future.
