Robert Deignan is a businessman who lives and works in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. He grew up in Fort Lauderdale and attended a private, Roman Catholic high school called St. Thomas Aquinas High School. After graduating in 1992 he attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He graduated in 1995 with a bachelor of science degree in business management.
After working for a few years, Robert Deignan became an entrepreneur when he co-founded a company called FanLink, Inc. in 1998. This company offered a way for fans of sports, musicians, and other live events a way to avoid the lines by getting tickets through their phone. About three years later he left this company in order to join iS3, Inc. as their executive vice president. This is a privately held company which develops software applications. This includes antivirus and antimalware products so that people and businesses can keep their computer systems safe.
After working for iS3, Inc., for over nine years Robert Deignan once again launched a new company. It was in August 2011 that he co-founded Inbound Call Experts (ICE), LLC. He is now the chief executive officer of this firm which is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. He recently renamed his company as Advanced Tech Support (ATS) Digital Services. He has a call center which provides premium support services to customers of a number of different software applications. His company has been certified by AppEsteem Corp. His company can provide support both over the phone as well as having customers authorize remote access screen sharing.
When talking about what his company offers to consumers, Robert Deignan said that they provide comprehensive support so that they can get the most out of the software applications they own. He saw that his company pretty much did everything that AppEsteem required for certification so he tied up some loose ends and his company became the first one have a call center certified. He wanted others in the tech industry, such as security firms and software vendors, to know that using his company’s services was a very good choice for them.
Louis R. Chenevert is a businessman born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and now resides in Hartford, Connecticut. Chenevert attained his education from the University of Montreal, HEC Montreal and Concordia University. Prior to retirement, he was the Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies Corporation(UTC.)
Louis is one of the most legendary names to ever work at United Technologies Corporation. His focus of innovation and long-term goals during his stint as CEO of UTC is what transformed the company into the success it is today. Louis is responsible for changing an entire industry with the investments he chose to make during his time at UTC. During his prior position at Pratt & Whitney, Louis came up with the idea of a specific type of engine. When he became a part of United Technologies Corporation in 2006, he brought the idea with him. Due to the increase in efficiency the engine provided, 14 airlines now use this specific engine.
After the success of Louis’ engine, the company grew exponentially. The company is expected to create 25,000 new employees with-in the next 3 years. The current leadership at UTC say that it strives to be as revolutionary as Louis R. Chenevert. Gregory Hayes, the current Chief Executive Officer at UTC likes to remind his employees that the CEO should work in favor of the company and should leave the company better off than they found it. This is the attitude the Chenevert had when he was CEO of UTC, and it is the mindset that any CEO of any company should have.
Chenevert is the recipient of the 2009 Honor Award from the National Building Museum, in 2011 he was named Person of the Year by Aviation Week & Space Technology.
As well as his career in airline innovations, he is chairman of the Yale Cancer Center Advisory Board. He is also the founder of United States Friends of HEC Montreal Foundation and is chairman of the HEC Montreal International Advisory Board.
CEO of United Technologies Company, Louis Chenevert was on the top of his game as president and CEO when he decided to retire. Most often when a CEO of a predominant company decides to unexpectedly retire, the company is not profitable or has not received financial and goodwill success in an industry. It is highly unlikely that any CEO generally decides to make the determination to step down when the company is flourishing. However, Louis Chenevert made that decision when the company was on a sound footing with the stock price at the highest level it had ever raised to, and without any unfavorable press. With the company performing so well makes it difficult to believe that he would decide to walk away. That is a decision that Louis Chenevert made by walking away to become a semi-retired Aerospace financial advisor for Goldman Sachs and move on to other opportunities that are less demanding and still very rewarding. After retiring he took on an exclusive opportunity with Goldman Sachs that allowed him to still be part of the aerospace industry. In this role, Louis Chenevert was still able to play an indirect part roll in the financing and evaluation of future technology innovations in aviation and continue the expansion of the industry. Because he is in tune with new technologies and innovations that are coming down the road in the industry Louis was the perfect candidate for the Advisor position. After retiring Louis Chenevert also took up a passion for designing and engineering yachts on a custom order basis. The passion to build the next best yacht from design to production build allows him the ability to actually enjoy all aspects of the development of the item that he’s actually producing. Before leaving United Technologies Corporation Louis Chenevert was a catalyst in the acquisition of Goodrich Corporation that positioned the company as the major conglomerate in the Aerospace industry. By allowing UTC to control a lot of the cost of production with the acquisition it was able to streamline production cost and increase profits for the organization. After the acquisition, Louis Chenevert was arguably the most powerful CEO in the Aerosmith Aerospace industry and chose to retire at the top of his game.
