Louis Chenevert is a businessman and entrepreneur. He was born in 1958 in Montreal Canada. He had an interest of becoming a businessman when he grows up. He knew that the only way to become successful was through hard work and determination. From that early age, he started working hard toward achieving his goal. He joined the HEC Montreal business school where he attained his first degree in production management. When there is production management in an organization, that organization can produce the best quality goods as well as the right amount. In addition to this, production management allows organizations to create products or services at a faster speed and the lowest cost. All these qualities make an organization to realize maximum profits. Louis Chenevert wanted to be a significant player when it came to the success of the company he would work for and so he decided to pursue production management.
He first started working with General Motors at St. Therese, Quebec under Guy Hachey. Louis was working as the manager of Montreal’s General Motors assembly line. According to Hachey, Louis Chenevert was the best manager he ever had in the company. However, Louis left the company after staying for 14 years and joined Pratt & Whitney Canada which is a division of Pratt & Whitney (P&W) firm based in the United States. P&W is a business division of United Technologies Corporation (UTC). In 1996, the operations president for P&W was retiring, and the company chose Chenevert to take over the position. Chenevert was performing well with PWC, and this prompted the P&W to promote him to this role.
It was after three years that Chenevert became the president of P&W. During this time, the organization was not doing as well as expected. However, through his leadership as well as his dedication to experience new technology, Chenevert began improving the company’s revenues. He was able to achieve the same results he had accomplished while at PWC. At this time, so many organizations were going through a downturn, but Chenevert brought so many changes to the company that covered it from the losses other companies were experiencing.
