Louis Chenevert is not like every other business executive out there. What he does works. Every business he has worked for, he has turned a profit for them, and also, for himself.

Chenevert is a Canadian native who loves the city of his birth, Montreal. While growing up, Chenevert always had eyes on attending the University of Montreal. As soon as Chenevert could, he enrolled in the business extension school known as the HEC of Montreal. During his time receiving an education, he would be granted the degree of Production Manager.

Chenevert would put this degree to use at his first job. When he left school, Chenevert would take on the office of Production General Managers for the United States based company, General Motors. Working there for fourteen years, Chenevert would then change jobs and go work for Pratt & Whitney.

Chenevert worked for Pratt & Whitney for six years in a very similar role that he held while at General Motors. However, the leaders at Pratt & Whitney would see in Chenevert the potential to lead them to profit greatness.

Chenevert would then work his same magic at the United Technologies Corporation.

Chenevert was so successful that when he stepped down in 2014, the profitable company was assessed at $63 billion.
