While there are billions of people in the world that want to make a mark, only a handful of these actually manage to make a mark and leave a legacy. One such a guy is Louis Chenevert, a Canadian born who has scaled in two related industries for nearly three decades. From humble beginnings, Louis knew that he wanted to leave a mark. That is exactly what he has lived to do.
Louis Chenevert was born and raised in Montreal, CA. From his infancy, Louis Chenevert had a burning interest in business especially in the production department. After attaining a basic degree in Business and Entrepreneurial Production at the Montreal HEC Business School in Montreal University, Louis linked up with a friend. It is from this humble beginning Louis Chenevert could land his first job at General Motors’ St. Therese Quebec branch. As it were, Hachey, the friend who held Louis’ hand had him put at GM’s assembly line.
During his time at GM, Louis Chenevert was quick to learn. He dedicated his time and skills in ensuring that things are done in a timely manner. But even as he did this, he had to ensure that there was no mistake done. It turned out that every time Hachey would climb the ladder in managerial positions, he would actually let Louis replace him. That is what he did all the time Hachey got a promotion. Having given more responsibilities, Louis Chenevert delivered. While at GM, under his management, the assembly line would produce a new car every 60 seconds. That means in 60 minutes GM Montreal branch could produce 60 genuine and high-quality vehicles.
From Motor Vehicles To Aerospace
A time came when Hachey had to move on. As usual, whatever time he got a promotion, he thought of Louis Chenevert. That is what he did. Hachey moved to Bombardier Aerospace. After serving 14 years at General Motors, Louis Chenevert also decided to move. This time, it was with a friend at GM. Karl Krapek together with Louis decided to venture into aerospace. Louis Chenevert joined Pratt & Whitney CA in 1993. Here, he helped reduce aircraft production cost as well as reduce the number of months the factory could make a new engine from 24 months to 9 month!
