Awards and Accolades
Louis Chenevert is renowned for his uncanny ability to balance both short-term and long-term goals. He’s an astute leader who perfectly understands the essence of investing in tech innovations in building a successful company. In the late nineties, Louis used to head up a leading aeronautical firm called Pratt & Whitney Inc. At Pratt & Whitney, Louis was instrumental in turning this company around with the introduction of new advanced manufacturing tech. the visionary leader helped the erstwhile struggling jet engine manufacturer to up their revenues exponentially in just a couple of years. For his outstanding feats, Louis is the recipient of the prestigious Person of the Year award in the late 2000’s.
By the time Mr. Chenevert left Pratt & Whitney in 2006, he’d risen to be the engineering firm’s overall president. That fact made it remarkably easier for Chenevert to merge the two establishments together into one giant conglomerate. Over the next decade, the two firms would sink in an estimated $10 billion and effectively succeeded in transforming the aviation industry. No wonder, Pratt & Whitney have manufacturing plants in far-flung locales like Florida, Georgia, Connecticut, Maine, New York and Michigan. The ambitious manufacturer seeks to add on an estimated 25K employees to support their growing operations, nationally and globally.

Since the GTF engine debuted, it’s received a grand welcome from the leading global airline carriers. As of 2018, the engine is now fitted into over 70 aircraft and it has performed impeccably well, according to the flight crew engineers.
