Louis Chenevert’s Time in UTC

Multiple factors determine the success of an individual. Many factors separate the successful individuals from others. Not many people have what it takes to get to the top. The catch in the success world is that only those who are committed get to have the wealth and riches. Louis Chenevert is among the investors who have been able to make a difference in the investment field.

When Louis Chenevert was born, no one knew he could become the person the world knows today. He was an average kid with an ordinary upbringing. It is the path that he decided to follow that made him the icon he is today. Many business people are researching the mechanisms he used in the United Technologies Corporation to turn things around. Others have tried to use the same methods in their ventures, and they have proved effective.

 

Louis Chenevert served as the CEO of UTC for less than a decade but the impact that his work had on the firm, will last for many decades. When he joined the company, many firms were closing down and fighting to remain in business as a result of the tough financial crisis. Despite this not being a good time, Chenevert did not only manage to stay in business but to improve the company as well. Louis Chenevert improved the shares of UTC by almost 200%.

 

Louis Chenevert did this through his innovation and creativity. He also led the firm to invest in the future, which he believed would not only be indispensable to the company but to the state as well. It is worthwhile to note that by investing in the future, he referred to resources as well as the human capital. Louis Chenevert ensured that he maintained the employees of the conglomerate when others were conducting massive layoffs.

 

The acquisitions that Louis Chenevert made also contributed to his success with UTC. The first thing that he did when he became the CEO of UTC was to purchase the GTF engine he saw in the Pratt & Whitney, where he used to work previously. He also bought the Goodrich at $18.2 billion. The acquisitions helped the company gain leverage.

Shervin Pishevar, What Are You Thinking?

What on earth is going on with Shervin Pishevar?

If the man didn’t have attention on him before, he surely does now.

The entire world didn’t know Shervin Pishevar’s name when he was simply the founder of Sherpa Capital.

We didn’t even know his name when sexual assault charges started to be brought against him,

but we surely know his name now. Why?

Because the man has brought attention on himself by going on a rant, and not just any rant:

this rant lasted 21 hours.

How’s that for the Guinness Book of World Records?

Shervin Pishevar probably isn’t trying to gain a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records, but one thing’s for certain: he is trying to achieve a goal.

What may that goal be?

Well, to determine that, we’d have to examine his rants.

Let’s talk about some of the topics he ranted about: bitcoin, big business, Silicon Valley, and the stock market.

These are things that are kind of related, but one still has to wonder why Pishevar, all of a sudden, felt that it would be a good idea to post his views on these topics for 21 hours straight.

Could he be trying to divert attention from all of the sexual assault cases against him, which even include rape?

Could there be something even bigger that he is trying to hide so he is trying to aim the spotlight on other companies so that his name is no longer in the media?

It may be safe to assume that Shervin Pishevar does have a good reason for ranting for 21 hours in what the media has dubbed “a financial storm.”

He has touched on quite a few topics.

Some of these topics garner worldwide interest; other topics people couldn’t care less about.

Nevertheless, the topics that piqued the interest of few people are now being researched by more and more individuals.

Could this be bad for business for companies like Microsoft?

Are people going to stop giving these companies their business and instead give their business to smaller companies?

We shall know the answer to this in the days to come.
