United Technologies Former CEO and Chairman Louis Chenevert Builds a Legacy

Building a legacy is the best way to ensure you are remembered. Louis Chenevert understood that throughout his career as a businessman and worked hard to ensure that the company he led was both profitable and successful while he was running it, but also that it would remain that way in the future. Investing in your company and its future potential is how you create that legacy, and Chenevert invested in the technology that United Technologies needed and the people that could shape its future.

The products and designs that United Technologies are bringing to the market now were started decades ago, both in funding and through research. Without those early investments, the company would not be able to compete within the industry or place itself as a leader in innovation. Chenevert knew this and made it his mission to place the company at the forefront of change and standards that were above and beyond those set in place at the time of conception.

Chenevert’s background in production management, combined with an understanding of the fast pace of the aviation industry, kept him focused on the future growth of the company. Investing in both his legacy, and the company’s legacy, allowed for manufacturing to continue even when the economy was weak and other brands were downsizing. Extending the reach of those investments to the companies that it works directly with is also important to securing the future of the company. Any company can only grow as much as the people that it relies on.

That final concept was something that Chenevert used to help build the best legacy for United Technologies. By supporting employees and their futures, he established a way to ensure growth, innovation, and excellence. Through encouraging employees to continue pursuing knowledge and add to their talents the success of the company was created by the employees.
