Louis Chenevert’s rise from humble beginnings will inspire anyone to follow their dreams no matter how big or small. He was born in Montreal, Canada where he had a relatively normal childhood. Deep inside Louis wanted more. He had big aspirations that one day he would accomplish.
Eventually Mr. Chenevert would become President, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer at United Technologies Corporation but for now he would have to work his way up there. Louis Chenevert attended HEC Montreal where he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Production Management. This would be the most perfect degree for his future business endeavors. Louis first started his career at General Motors in Canada at their St. Therese, Quebec. He worked the 2nd shift in their assembly line as a first line supervisor. His managers were so impressed with his work ethic and knowledge that he kept rising in his positions. The man who hired him, Guy Hachey, can proudly say that Louis was a great employee and they became fast friends.
Louis Chenevert was ready for change and joined the team at Pratt & Whitney 1993 after 14 years at General Motors. He rose the ranks of Pratt & Whitney like he did at GM. In one year Mr. Chenevert was able to cut manufacturing costs by 10 percent. In 1999, he became President and continued to grow the company to new heights. He knew their GTF engine had so much untapped potential that when Louis Chenevert joined United Technologies Corporation as Chairman he would use UTC’S resources to advance the engine’s abilities ten fold. The two businesses are connected because Pratt & Whitney is a company under the umbrella of companies at United Technologies Corporation. He had UTC invest $10 million dollars to use the most up to date advanced technology to super boost this engine. At last, the new engine was unveiled and was clearly superior to any other on the market. Over 70 aircraft use the engine in over 14 airlines. They cut fuel costs by 20 percent, 50 percent less noise, and needed 30 percent less parts in its lifetime.
Brazil is one of the fastest developing countries in the world, and its economy has been in the news for the last few years due to the many investment opportunities it present. Due to the fast-growing economy, it also presents the local people with many entrepreneurial opportunities. It has given birth to the many success stories, and one of the entrepreneurs who has achieved a lot of success in a relatively short span of time is Roberto Santiago, who hails from the Brazilian city of Joao Pessoa. He has done Masters in Business Administration from the University of Joao Pessoa and started his journey of success in the world of business with the packaging and manufacturing business. However, after achieving some success in the industry mentioned above, he took his profits and invested in the real estate. It is what marked the beginning of his success story in the real estate sector.
Today, Roberto Santiago is amongst the most successful businessman and entrepreneurs in all of Brazil, and it is primarily due to his vision and business foresight. Roberto Santiago started his journey in the world of real estate by consulting with some of the biggest real estate analysts and realizing there is a massive demand for shopping malls among the people. It is why he built his first shopping mall by the name of Mangabeira Shopping Mall. The Mangabeira Shopping Mall impressed the people as well as the real estate fraternity of Brazil. It showed that Roberto Santiago is a fast learner and is here to stay in the world of real estate.
The second real estate project by Roberto Santiago was the Manaira Shopping Mall, the construction of which began in 1985 and within a year the mall was opened to the public. The Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall was warmly welcomed by the people of Joao Pessoa and was an instant success as well. More and more people started visiting the mall with time and are now amongst the most visited attractions of the city. It has everything one can ask for in a mall starting from movie theatres to world-class shopping experience and from bowling alley and food court to fine dining restaurants, bank, school, pub, bar, game zone, and much more. Roberto Santiago has ensured that the Manaira Shopping Mall continues to evolve with time and new features are added to it from time to time.
Roberto Santiago has also made sure that the terrace of the vast Manaira Shopping Mall is used constructively. It is for this reason; the Domus Hall was constructed on its terrace. The Domus Hall can hold more than 8,000 people and has been the witness to some of the biggest concerts and business conferences held in the city.
