Before Louis Chênevert joined UTC as the CEO, it took him years of showing what he really had in him. He worked for the different organization as a production a manager until when the time for him to take up the big job came. He started his career at General Motors. He stayed in the auto industry for 14 years. Here, he learned the basic and the most important reasons for creating an efficient productions system. One of the best things he did at GM was overseeing a production line that was producing a car every single minute. This is the kind of production system where precision is of high value. In case there is a mistake for one hour, there could be production of too many cars that will go into waste.
With the experience Louis Chênevert gathered from the auto industry, he was ready to make the big switch to the aerospace industry.

As fate would have it, Louis Chênevert proved his value to the company, and he grew quickly in positions until he became the CEO of UTC. Pratt &White is one of the companies under UTC.
