The former CEO of United Technologies Corporation was Louis Chenevert. He had certain views about investing which still stand strong.
Louis Chenevert believed that the effectiveness of a CEO is to leave the company better than how they had attained it. The only way to do so is by investing in innovation as well as in people.
He stated that the requirement for results in the short term will always be there. But the CEO must always keep the long term in mind. This is the reason why United Technologies Corporation has continuously invested in technology as well as in people. He knows that the decisions being made today will determine the success being achieved in the future.
The Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan engine required an investment of 20 years along with $10 billion for designing and developing it. This is a jet engine that can change the entire industry. It can reduce fuel burning by 16%, and emissions by 50%. The noise footprint will be reduced by 75%. This GTF is being commercially used since last year. Now it is being flown on 72 aircraft being flown by 14 airlines.
Louis Chenevert has willingness as well as the commitment to investing in such technologies that will drive future growth. These investments will support the economy as well as manufacturing jobs in the US.
The factories manufacturing Pratt & Whitney are all across the country. These include Connecticut, Florida, besides Georgia, Maine, as well as New York along with Michigan. The supply chain is touching nearly each state in the U.S. These factories are producing parts or assembling or testing the GTF engine. The company continues investing in the technology. Besides, it is also investing $1.3 billion in the manufacturing and service centers based in the US in order to meet the needs of their current and prospective customers.
This would also mean an enhanced need for investing in the next generation. It is estimated that over the next few years, United Technologies Corporation will be hiring around 25,000 people. This would have 5,000 new positions that would support the growth of the innovation platforms.

The Jericho Network is happily welcoming the new program “Beyond the Darkness” to its ranks. The show will be presented by Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis and will be insightful conversations with a diverse menagerie of guests who have personal experience with the paranormal and investigators of the supernatural. Points of discussion vary from simple neighborhood ghost stories to elaborate and strange alien encounters. Chris Jericho, the WWE star and proud leader of the Jericho Network, is excited to see this new concept and the new fans coming to his channel and allow it to evolve from its beginnings in wrestling. Norman Pattiz, Chairman of the company PodcastOne, informed the public in December 2016 that “Beyond the Darkness” will soon be available on the Jericho Network every Monday.
Norman Pattiz is a current Chairman with PodcastOne as well as the founder of the company. Already, PodcastOne and PodcastOne Sales are among the top in podcast marketing and sales, succeeding the line of profitable endeavors in Pattiz’ career. He began by founding Westwood One in 1974, America’s biggest radio network in broadcasting, then, while serving on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the creation of Radio Sawa radio network, and finally by reaching the entirety of the Middle East with Alhurra Television. When he left Westwood One in 2010, he founded the Courtside Group and has also launched PodcastOne in June of last year.
Pattiz decided to enter the world of podcasting when Kit Gray, a Podcast Representative, helped Pattiz see the similarities between a podcast and a radio broadcast. Once that realization was made, he dived into his current venture and enjoys the new, yet similar, digital world of podcasting. He has discovered that the growth of PodcastOne has come from new ideas to stay fresh and alluring to consumers, who determine the success of a program almost instantaneously. This is very unlike his prior success in broadcasting, which came from the more technical aspects of the business and not completely on the content and consumers. The democracy of this new medium fascinates Pattiz and keeps him excited about his continuing legacy in the broadcasting and podcasting communities.
