Louis Chenevert: From Jets to Elevators

Gregory Hayes, current CEO of United Technologies, was recently asked what kind of legacy he wants to leave behind at the company. He answered that he believes the company should be at least in as good, if not better, shape than when took over.

By looking at the numbers, this seems to be the case so far. The company has created a revolution of sorts by creating a jet engine that is far superior to anything in its class. Called the GTF or geared turbofan, the engine is being used by 14 airlines in just a couple of years since its release. Considered to be the most efficient and clean engine, the GTF is a success story that involves a lot of hard work from a lot of people.

The supply chain to build the engines is located in almost all 50 states. The assembly plants are located in several different locations in the country. United Technologies invests nearly $1.3 billion in service centers for present and future customers. A total of $10 billion had been spent so far in the development of this particular engine. This is all money and jobs that are being kept in the US. What makes this company unique is that it has spent nearly $1 billion towards education programs for its employees and nearly 39,000 employees were able to earn their degrees through this program.

Louis Chenevert was the former boss at United Technologies. He became CEO in 1993 and guided the company to become the powerhouse it is today. What is even more impressive about this is that he did it despite the company being located in Hartford, Connecticut, which is not exactly the cheapest place to do manufacturing. In fact, as the rest of the nation was slipping and sliding in manufacturing after WWII, United Technologies improved its performance. Louis Chenevert was instrumental in turning the company into an aerospace as well as a construction related company, with the purchase of Otis elevators and escalators as well as BF Goodrich. Today, thanks to Chenevert, United Technologies is one the leading innovators as well as manufacturers in its field.

How Kate Hudson Made Fabletics a Success

Contrary to how the media makes it seems, establishing a new business is still incredibly difficult. It has gotten easier to open a new business but with all the e-commerce market being flooded with millions of new online stores, success is a low possibility.

Even more difficult is succeeding in today’s fashion industry. Fashion has always been a difficult industry, but with Amazon controlling 20 percent of the fashion e-commerce market, succeeding in fashion is increasingly harder. Despite the odds, Kate Hudson is doing that very thing; growing a $250 million business in the first three years of operation.

Kate Hudson is a world-renowned actress and fashion icon. She’s always been known for her beauty and her healthy balance of diet and exercise. As society’s focus shifts toward healthier decisions, celebrities like Kate Hudson get more attention. Kate Hudson’s always taken pride in her fitness but noticed a lack of fashionable workout clothing.

When the opportunity presented itself, Kate Hudson launched Fabletics as part of the ‘activewear’ movement. Activewear is the correlation between exercise attire and casual wear. Popular among millennials, activewear is the biggest trend in fashion. Fabletics is the only brand creating stylish outfits that the common person can afford.

Since the company’s launch, Fabletic’s success in the e-commerce market led to the decision to open some physical stores. While physical stores are vastly different from running a website, Fabletics has had no problem adjusting to the different market. Currently, Fabletics has 16 stores nationwide and plans on adding more by the end of next year.

Fabletic’s success in retail is due to its “reverse showrooming” technique. Fabletic’s stores welcome offline browsing by hosting events and other activities. Each store uses its particular results to better stock its inventory with items that local members are more likely to buy.

As Fabletics grows in popularity, the number of online reviews increases. While other brands that promote themselves as customer-focused are shredded by reviews, Fabletics is actually keeping its head above water. In particular, a non-sponsored reviewer’s opinion of Fabletics has gotten a lot of attention.

According to her, Fabletics is actually worth the money members spend. She was surprised by the variety of styles Fabletics has; everything from simple tanks to sheer fabrics. Anyone interested in Fabletics can start by taking a lifestyle quiz.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)

George Soros Re-emerges In Politics to Support Hillary Clinton In Her Presidential Bid

George Soros is a political activist and billionaire who were raised in Hungary. Soros experienced the Nazi Regime that left hundreds of Jews dead. Through it all, his father hid the family’s identity to protect them from mass killings. Soros flew Hungary to pursue his studies at the London School of Economics. That was the beginning of his entrepreneurial career as well as philanthropy. As a student, he worked as a waiter prior to being employed as a finance manager at a bank. He moved to New York and started his Wall Street career by establishing a hedge fund. The fund cost $12 million. The fund was later rebranded as Quantum Fund. Read his profile at Forbes.

Experience

Soros’s career can be described as a gradual evolution of experience. He was joined by Stan Druckenmiller in 1992 in shorting the pound in British. He received an active tag as the guy who broke the bank. Years later, he is known as a heavyweight investor. He established the Soros Fund Management which is worth over $30 billion. In 2017, he hired a leading investment portfolio manager from Wall Street. The lady, Dawn Fitzpatrick is in charge of operating the fund’s management. Being a huge enthusiast of liberal causes, he has been President Trump’s fierce critic. Learn more about his profile at businessinsider.com.

Politics

In 2016, Soros re-emerged in the political arena after dialing back his giving in 2004 when he was in support of George Bush’s defeat. He reemerged as the leading Democratic funder for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Soros pledged over $25 million geared towards Hillary’s election as president. According to the reports from the Federal Election Commission in addition to the interviews from his associates, Soros planned to donate more millions towards the elections. The wealthy billionaire traveled to Europe in support of the economic atmosphere although he was to join Hillary in her first presidential debate. Even in his absence, Soros was supportive of Hillary. He funded the Democratic fundraising operatives. His associates expected him to donate more money towards the elections.

Support

Unlike in the past where George Soros was hesitant about chairing political campaigns, he was more politically inclined this time. Following his political differences with Trump and his manifesto, Soros was rest assured that Hillary Clinton was the best choice for America. Michael Vachon, his political adviser, stated that Soros has been consistent with his political donations. He also added that he was more politically inclined towards Hillary’s bid and that he was hopeful she would win. Vachon concluded that Trump’s agenda fostered Soros’s determination. His care for Americans could not allow him to support Trump as many strategies were not for the good of the citizens. Even though Hillary lost the chair to President Trump, he is still Hillary’s supporter.

As a teenager Cassio Audi took up the role of drummer for Viper when the band was established in 1985 and would continue to performer as the drummer for the band until the months prior to the release of the bands second studio album in 1989. Audi joined together with his fellow Viper band members who worked to produce their first album, “Soldiers of Sunrise” and instill within it a sense of excellent musicianship and a high level of performance.

Cassio Audi was one of the standout performers on the “Soldiers of Sunrise” album and found himself heralded by critics for the high level of musical accomplishment he and his fellow teenage Viper members had achieved in creating their first studio album.
