It takes time, vision and provision of service to get to the highest level of professionalism and confidence, no matter what field of industry one chooses to commit. For anyone whose ultimate goal is to not only head a major corporation but pioneer new inventions to advance mankind, the history of Louis R. Chenevert should be inspirational. His list of professional positions include Chairman, CEO, President, COO and Director for United Technologies Corporation (UTC).
Pratt and Whitney is another company on the list of places he has served as President. General Motors has him to thank for more than 14 years of effort as it’s Production General Manager. His experience can easily be described as well-rounded, with time spent with Goldman Sachs Banking Division before his executive positions with UTC. And then, there are the number of other associations with organizations under his belt that warrant mention, such as the Business Council, the US India CEO Forum and the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation.
Of course, there are many others to name, and each one acts as an institution its own right. Before all of his professional success as a businessman, Chenevert knows what it means to perform as a student. He has a Bachelor of Commerce from Universite de Montreal (HEC). This is in addition to an Honorary Doctorate from University of Montreal. He has a history of being Chairman for the HEC’s International Advisory Board as well as founding director and Chairman for the Board of Directors to the Friends of HEC.
But, it is not just his resume that should inspire others to reach the sames heights. Really, Chenevert’s down to earth mode of operation deserves a fair share of the spotlight. For example, he admits that there is whole team of professionals to thank for making UTC what it is. He is also proud to acknowledge that the very same principles and actions are to thank for the production of advancements that have forever changed the field of aerospace. He finds that the best way to achieve product goals is by staying focused within smaller teams and checking the quality of service and product rendered through rigorous review.
According to a recent succession of tweets released by Shervin Pishevar – the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop One and Sherpa Capital, the traditional framework of financial institutions is on the verge of complete collapse. This was just one of the bombshells that Shervin Pishevar dropped on the Twitter universe, when, breaking a short sabbatical from the public eye, he went on a “tweetstorm,” covering a wide array of issues soon to be facing the United States. The tweetstorm lasted for 24 hours and spanned 50 posts, some of which painted a picture of an America undergoing a number of dire changes.
Shervin Pishevar’s take on the stock market shocked a number of his onlookers, particularly with the support that it has received from several prominent figures in recent months – Donald Trump being at the forefront. After reversing many of its gains from the early part of the year, the stock market has been on a downward slope, due in part to a dearth of quality treasury auctions, and billion dollar exits. In his estimation, the stock market will soon experience losses that will exceed 5000 points. After making this prediction during the tweetstorm, as if on cue, the Dow Jones suffered losses of more than 1000 points over the course of a single cycle, which created panic throughout all sectors. With the United States possibly facing a devastating outlook for the near future regarding the stock market, the introduction of stateless digital currencies may do more to usher in a new era of banking and government. Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, which he predicts will begin a steady rise over the next twenty-four months, will have a major role in the dismantling of the current financial and governing institutions. Many investors have been decidedly split regarding the future of Bitcoin, as it has seen both incredible gains and incredible losses over a very short period of time. Shervin Pishevar stands by his belief that the United States government is stuck in a close-minded thought process, which has been reflected in the lack of effort being placed on American infrastructure.
