Louis Chenevert Stamps Imprint On United Technologies Corporation

Louis R. Chenevert has blazed an unforgettable path with United Technologies Corporation during his time with the company. Chenevert worked for the company in a variety of positions and was the acting president and chief executive officer when he retired from his post in 2014.

Chenevert was a well-seasoned professional by the time he joined UTC and had already served as president of Pratt & Whitney, as well as the general manager of production for General Motors’ operation in St. Therese.

A large part of Chenevert’s legacy with UTC was the executive’s ability to deliver immediate results in pressure situations while always maintaining a careful eye on the long-term success of the organization. Chenevert has also been applauded for using the resources of the company to invest in its people and improved technology. When questioned about his decision-making process Chenevert explains that he learned early in his career that decisions made today were even more impactful in the future.

A situation that perfectly illustrates this point began when Chenevert was still president of Pratt & Whitney. Chenevert quickly understood that a particular engine used by Pratt & Whitney was going to be very popular in the future. When Chenevert became CEO of UTC he made sure that the company gained access to the engine and reaped great benefits.

Chenevert’s willingness to invest in technology was not only a key to the growth and success of UTC as a company but also positioned the company to become a key component of the U.S. economy. This is due to the fact that the many manufacturing jobs that were created by UTC have remained in the country. The company maintains plants of operations in the states of Florida, Michigan, Georgia, Maine, Connecticut, and New York. Furthermore, the production by these plants has necessitated a supply chain that involves every state in the country.

United Technologies Company will forever benefit from the foundation in place due to the efforts of Louis Chenevert and because of his vision, UTC is continuing to build on the unequaled growth and power they have established in the industry.

Shervin Pishevar Predicts Financial Reckoning

Shervin Pishevar eats, sleeps, and breathes startup companies, and is one of the staunchest supporters of American entrepreneurship and economic growth. Over the years, the co-founder of reputable companies such as Sherpa Capital and Virgin Hyperloop One has cleared a path to success by handpicking bonafide startups before they’ve gained the attention of the masses, including Dollar Shave Club, Airbnb, Rap Genius, Tumblr, Uber, Warby Parker, and TaskRabbit.

The University of California, Berkeley grad has gained the respect of his contemporaries through his acute sense of potential, which has earned him a platform that, more often than not, garners a huge audience when he chooses to speak. Taking to Twitter, Shervin Pishevar discussed a litany of issues, including the future of the American economy, globalism, and entrepreneurship, in a 50-tweet tirade that made waves amongst the investment community.

In discussing the future of the stock market, Shervin Pishevar drew a bleak picture, predicting that the stock market would see a drop ranging in the thousands, possibly in the months to come. While this may have come as a shock to many, the Dow has been in disarray for much of the year, reversing the majority of the gains made early on, due to sell-offs, as well as subpar treasury auctions. Shortly after revealing his position regarding the stock market, the Dow Jones seemed to react, promptly dipping by over 1000 points, making traditionally safe options look anything but. Shervin Pishevar wasted not a moment in addressing President Donald Trump, who has consistently stood by the stock market, stating that “Presidents should not be cheering the market.”

Shervin Pishevar also dished on the “tectonic shift” that is currently taking place regarding world innovation. While the United States has traditionally held a monopoly in this regard, with Silicon Valley acting as the home base, Shervin Pishevar believes that Silicon Valley has essentially disseminated into an idea that has crossed world borders. In today’s world, the United States, historically a leader, is now struggling to keep up, as the speed of execution in a variety of industries, is noticeably outpacing the production of the United States.
