Louis Chenevert’s Rise to the Top and his Accomplishments

Louis Chenevert is considered one of the most influential businessmen in the world. The legacy he left in the UTC is a legendary one. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Louis Chenevert attended the HEC Montreal, which is affiliated with the University of Montreal. Here, he studied Production Management which he clearly not intended to let go to waste.

He got a job with General Motors immediately after school, where he worked for 14 years. In 1993, he was hired by an engine manufacturing company: Pratt & Whitney. During his time here, his hard work led to his promotion to the President of the Company. This is because during the time of his employment to the company, it was a recession period and he managed to improve the performance of the unit he was serving.

Pratt & Whitney was a subsidiary of the United Technologies Corporation (UTC). His performance as the President of Pratt & Whitney led to his nomination as the CEO of UTC. In UTC, he improved the value of the impressive shares of the firm to $117 which were initially $37 when he joined. He also made significant acquisitions in the firm that greatly improved the domination of UTC in the market.

While in UTC, Louis Chenevert knew that the only way he could achieve his goals in the company was through the assistance of the employees. This is why when other companies were busy conducting layoffs to maintain their businesses in the market, he moved the employees of UTC to Connecticut.

Aware of the rising Global Warming, Louis Chenevert took a step that he advised the other firms to take. He reduced the water consumption by 53% and the greenhouse gases emission by 26%. As a result, the products of UTC became eco-friendly and became marketable to other nations around the world.

During his reign, Louis Chenevert was awarded severally for his success. After his nomination as the CEO of UTC, the National Building Museum awarded him in 2009. In 2011, the HEC Montreal awarded him with a doctorate honoris causa. In the same year, the Space Technology magazine and the Aviation Week named him ‘’Person of the Year’’.

Trump Pardons Arpaio But That Isn’t The End of This Story

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona has long been known as America’s toughest sheriff has once again proven that the rules of the system don’t apply to him. No longer the Sheriff after 24 years with the title, Arpaio was convicted of the federal felony of criminal contempt by a Federal Judge. President Trump has decided to pardon Arpaio with no jail time or other consequence.

Arpaio was the law in Maricopa County for many years. He was known for his strong arm tactics and racial profiling of Hispanics and Latinos. Arpaio is a staunch advocate for erasing illegal immigration by any means, even if it means violating civil or human rights.

When he lost his 7th bid for re-election, many thought it was a turning point in his getting away with corrupt police work.

One such act that reflected Arpaio’s disregard for the law was the case against Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. These two successful businessmen have long been advocates for the Hispanic and Latino population in their state and beyond. Lacey and Larkin who own the media group, Village Voice Media publish a newspaper called the Phoenix Sun.

This publication has exposed the misdeeds of Sherrif Arpaio and his department for many years, which greatly annoyed the great sheriff. The paper printed statistics that proved racial profiling focused on Hispanics and Latinos. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Twitter

When the Phoenix Sun learned that a grand jury has been set up to target the paper, its editors, reporters, and subscribers, Lacey and Larkin decided to make it public. They knew this was a risk but they felt strongly that the first amendment rights were in jeopardy.

In response to exposing, Arpaio had his friends in the County Attorney Office to issue arrest warrants. Lacey and Larkin were both arrested at their homes on October 18th, 2007. Carried away in unmarked cars with Mexican plates, the two were booked and placed in jail.

Public outcry over the arrests was intense and the two men were released in less than a day. Thus began a long court case that Lacey and Larkin refused to give up on. They were finally completely exonerated by the 9th Court of Appeals in 2012 when the court ruled they had been unlawfully arrested and detained without any probable cause.

The pair were awarded $3.7 million dollars in an undeniable victory against the police system in Maricopa.

Many people would have been satisfied with this settlement and gone back to their lives as usual. Lacey and Larkin, however, decided to take most of the money and create the Frontera Fund.

This organization has been a powerful force in the protection of individual rights of minorities. Lacey and Larkin have vowed to continue their fight in defense of the first amendment and human rights.

President Trump pardoned Arpaio, in spite of the allegations and documented proof of his illegal ways. Arpaio has long been a supporter of Trump, dating back to the “Birther’ controversy regarding President Obama.

It seems his devotion has proven very helpful, but it is good to know that there are still men like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey who defend those who can’t always defend themselves.

Billboard Magazine Recognizes Desiree Perez

As one of the hardest working women in Hip-Hop, and in the music industry in general, Desiree Perez was acknowledged at the end of 2017 in Billboard Magazine’s expansive ‘Top Women Executives in the Music Industry’ list. Alongside such notable names as Atlantic Records CEO, Julie Greenwald, and Universal Music Group’s Executive VP, Michele Anthony, Desiree is proclaimed one the industries best of the best. Perez has long made a name for herself in the business side of the industry by being a tough negotiator, intelligent business woman, and the multi-faceted, quick witted, corporate arm of Sean ‘Jay Z’ Carter himself.

Perez has a long history with the multi-platinum selling rapper, and has many times been called ‘the woman behind the man’ in terms of Carter’s business successes. Perez’s presence and business savvy have been so influential on Jay that many argue without her keen sense for negotiation Hov would have never gone from all star Emcee to the Hip-Hop mogul he is today. Desiree’s inclusion in the Hova Circle of Influence, a select grouping of Jay’s most trusted managers across the board of his companies and corporations, along with her place within Rihanna’s notoriously tight nit circle, showcase just what a industry powerhouse Perez is.

She has achieved these business relationships by knowing her skills and sticking by them. Her most recent conquest, for legendary Hip-hop label, Roc Nation, for whom Perez sits as the Chief Operating Officer, was the renewal of a lucrative contract between the company and LiveNation. Perez also served as the negotiator of the original deal ten years ago, which subsequently proved profitable for both sides, as has the latest renewal. Perez also traversed a Samsung touring partnership with Roc Nation artist Rihanna, resulting in the founding of a business relationship and personal friendship between the two.

Malcolm CasSelle Introducing the Future of the Gaming Industry

Tokenization of in-game items is the future of the gaming industry. Worldwide Asset eXchange has been spearheading this agenda which will not only give gamers the liberty to own virtual assets, but it will also fractionalize player profits from centralized exchanges, create an avenue for games which were unable to transfer assets and at the same time lower transaction costs. However, tokenization comes with a lot of challenges such as monitoring tokens and ensuring that those on the blockchain are tied to their chains. WAX has put measures to curb this by making token holders responsible for transferring items through the Transfer Agents. Transfer agents are then taken to task by a supervisory committee known such as rating systems, delegated stake consensus algorithm, and Guilds.

 

Decentralization of governance will allow gamers to own assets from their icons such as a Babe Ruth baseball card, an Aston Martin from a James Bond Movie or even Michael Jordan’s NBA shoes that he wore while winning a championship game. With Guilds providing oversight, Transfer Agents will specialize in the delivery of assets.

Nathaniel Ru And His Partners Have Pioneered A Model Green Restaurant Called Sweetgreen

For the few years that Sweetgreen food chain has been in operation, it has managed to create a name for itself when it comes to healthy living.

The enterprise’s restaurants offer fresh salads and other organic foods that come straight from the garden to the customer’s table. According to one of the CEOs, Nathaniel Ru, the company is working to ensure that it feeds healthier portions to as many people as possible.

With over 40 branches in different locations across the United States, Sweetgreen has ensured that it leverages the power of computer technologies and the internet for efficient service delivery.

Nathaniel Ru and his partners believe that technology is an integral part of the provision of services at Sweetgreen. The green retail chain is backed by some of the most distinguished investors such as Daniel Boulud, Steve Case, and Danny Meyer.

The trio has employed some of the most innovative management strategies in their company. They had to re-think the whole aspect of management and in the process; they discovered that they wouldn’t require the main headquarters.

Nathaniel Ru and his partners decided to implement a decentralized system of the directorate. Sweetgreen has also implemented a unique strategy in which they close their management offices at least five times a year to ensure that all members of staff get a chance to work in the hotels.

The faces behind Sweetgreen are entrepreneurs Jonathan Neman, Nathaniel Ru and Nicholas Jammet. The trio met while attending an entrepreneurship class at Georgetown University.

The three entrepreneurs were able to forge lasting friendship because they all had the same business background owing to the fact all were born of immigrant parents who run family enterprises.

The Georgetown area was quite an interesting place, but Nathaniel Ru and his friends always faced the challenge of finding a restaurant that served healthier foods and was fun to hang around. This problem pushed them to come up with Sweetgreen and them setup the first hotel in the Georgetown area.

At first, business was quite challenging given the fact that they were trying to learn the market and break even at the same time. Nathaniel Ru knew that the company was poised for success when they survived the first winter break. During this period, students break for winter holidays leaving businesses with fewer customers.

Nathaniel Ru is evidently one of the most vocal and popular co-CEO of the three. He also serves as the company’s co-chief executive officer. Nathaniel draws a lot of inspiration from his role model Kevin Plank.
